Starbucks Japan has released a Japan-specific line of the highly popular ‘Been There’ merchandise range which features mugs, stainless steel bottles, and Starbucks prepaid cards. The line has been launched to celebrate the anniversary of Starbucks’s arrival in Japan.
Starbucks ‘Been There’ Collection
The Starbucks Japan ‘Been There’ collection consists of 20 different designs, with designs to reflect the 19 prefectures in Japan – each exclusive to the Starbucks stores in that prefecture. Each design features recognizable local landmarks flora and attractions. Unlike the American ‘Been There’ collection, the Japan edition does not include any theme parks.
The 19 prefectures featured include; Fukuoka, Gifu, Hiroshima, Hokkaido, Kanazawa, Kobe, Kumamoto, Kyoto, Nagano, Nagasaki, Nagoya, Nara, Oita, Okinawa, Osaka, Sendai, Tochigi, Tokyo, and Yokohama.
Although you’ll have to visit each prefecture to pick up the corresponding design, the Japan design is available through Starbucks Japan’s online store.
The Tokyo design features the Kaminarimon Gate at Sensoji Temple in Asakusa, Shibuya Crossing, cherry blossom, and a panda from Ueno Zoo.
The Kyoto design features geisha, cinnamon mochi, and the Kamogawa River.
The Osaka design features takoyaki, okonomiyaki, mixed juice, comedians, and Ebisubashi
Naturally, the Nara design features the beautiful free-roaming deer of Nara Park, Yoshino cherry blossoms, meadows, shaved ice, and Narazuke.
The Hiroshima design features Hiroshima-like motifs such as colored maple leaves, maple buns, okonomiyaki, lemons, oranges, and oysters.
In addition to the 19 prefecture-specific designs, a Japan design is available featuring Mt. Fuji, cherry blossoms, calico cats, hot springs, rice ears, sushi, and sumo wrestlers.
The designs for Fukuoka, Hokkaido, Kyoto, Okinawa, Osaka, Tokyo, and Japan also come in 473ml stainless steel bottles – perfect for keeping your Starbucks beverages warm while traveling.

More Things to Do in Tokyo
My recommendations for things to do in and around Tokyo! Plan a day at the Hello Kitty theme park, Sanrio Puroland, and an afternoon at the popular TeamLab Planets TOKYO. Take a tour around Tokyo with the convenient hop-on and-off bus. Spend a rainy afternoon inside Japan’s largest indoor theme park, Tokyo Joyoplis, near Tokyo Disney!
