Cherry blossom season is finally drawing near, and to celebrate the fleeting blooms, Starbucks has dropped its Japan-exclusive sakura drinkware collection along with two appropriately pink drinks. If that wasn’t enough, the Kengo Kuma-designed Starbucks Reserve Roastery Tokyo in Meguro has also released its own collection of sakura-themed merchandise including mugs, glasses, jewellery, seasonal baked goods and drinks.
The Starbucks Reserve Roastery Tokyo is situated right along the Meguro River, one of the city’s top sakura destinations. As such, it’s no surprise that the store has gone all out with stylish mugs, tumblers and Instagrammable drinks.
The collection may be extensive but certain items can only be found here at the Starbucks Reserve Roastery Tokyo. You can purchase everything else at selected Starbucks Reserve stores across Japan or online.

Drinks include a sakura macchiato (¥900), a Teavana sakura cream soda (¥900), a sakura cask coffee cocktail (¥2,000), and more.
The Princi bakery on the first floor is also turning out all sorts of delicious sakura-infused Italian baked goods. You’ll find treats such as a sakura cupola (¥380), sakura cornetti (¥420), sakura torta (¥720) and a sakura maritozzo (¥420). If you can’t make it to Meguro, the pastries are also available at select Princi stores around Japan.
The sakura food and drinks are a wonderful accompaniment to the cherry-blossom-lined Meguro River, which can be enjoyed from Starbucks Reserve Roastery Tokyo’s two spacious outdoor terraces. Cherry blossom season can get quite packed at the Roastery, so it’s wise to come early to beat the crowds. Otherwise, you’ll have to pick up a ticket for a designated time slot and come back then.
