There are some things that just hit different in Japan – convenience stores, stationery and of course, Starbucks! You won’t find anything “basic” at Starbucks Japan (or “Sutaba”, as it’s known by locals), with the coffee shop bringing out unique and delicious beverages to reflect Japan’s distinct seasons. Aside from Japan-limited drinks like cherry blossom-flavored frappuccinos and black sesame lattes, the tumblers and drinkware from Starbucks Japan are also sought-after by all the Starbucks addicts out there!
