Sakura season is nearly here, and Starbucks has already dropped its Japan-exclusive cherry blossom drinkware collection along with appropriately themed pink drinks. Not to be outdone, Starbucks Reserve Roastery Tokyo has released its own collection of sakura merch including mugs, tumblers and travel goods.
The Kengo Kuma-designed Starbucks Reserve Roastery Tokyo sits right along the Meguro River in Nakameguro, one of the city’s top sakura destinations. As such, the store goes all out every year with its own stylish mugs, tumblers and even a cherry blossom-themed interior.
Called the Coffee with Sakura collection, the series includes items such as mugs, tumblers, leather keychains and furoshiki (traditional Japanese wrapping cloths). All items are available online and at the Starbucks Reserve Roastery Tokyo in Nakameguro, with only a few selected items available at other Starbucks Reserve stores in Japan.
Additionally, the Roastery has a series of goods made in collaboration with travel gear brand To&Fro including folding umbrellas, packable organisers and lightweight bags. The travel collection is only available online and at the Starbucks Reserve Roastery Tokyo.

You also won't be able to miss the Reserve Roastery’s special sakura installation. The cherry blossom artworks include a display on the second floor that spells out 'Tokyo’ in pretty pinks. These letters are suspended and sway like falling cherry blossom petals. There’s artwork along the staircase, too, that changes appearance throughout the day depending on the lighting.
