On the 2nd of August, 1996, the very first Starbucks in Japan opened in Tokyo's ritzy Ginza neighborhood, attracting crowds that have hardly diminished over the years following, as Starbucks expanded across the country. That's right, popular Seattle coffee shop is celebrating 25 years in Japan, and while the company can set up as many sappy projects
commemorating the event as they want, most customers are more interested in what special products the company is making instead.
Of course, Starbucks is not one to shy away from merchandising
, especially in Japan where each season means new seasonal tumblers and coffee cups! They're starting this anniversary year off with a "first round" of limited edition products, which will be followed by a second and third round in the coming months.
