Japan had always been one of the top holiday destinations for Thai people, no matter the time of year.

Now that it’s officially sakura (cherry blossom) season and Hanami (‘flower watching’) festivities are starting to fill the air, the timing is perfect for a trip to the Land of the Rising Sun.

The cherry trees usually start blooming from the South as early as January and make its way towards the North as the year rolls by. As we're about to step into March, full bloom forecasts should now be available.

Starbucks Japan welcomes the long-awaited cherry blossom season with its limited-edition Sakura Collection for 2020, “Spring Breeze”.

The cherry blossom-themed drinkware collection includes tumblers, mugs, bottles, and stationary as well as sakura flavored beverages. The drinkware is currently available at all Starbucks outlets in Japan. While you can enjoy the drinks until February 25th, the merch will be available while stock lasts only.
