Sakura (cherry blossom) season is the best season in Japan! This pretty pink blossom is a national symbol and is considered the most loved bloom in Japan. Because of this, cafes all over Japan make delicious pink drinks in the spirit of the season! Let’s look at some of the best places to sip delicious and insta-worthy pink drinks!

Starbucks Japan

Every holiday season, Starbucks comes out with a variety of specialty drinks. And sakura season is no different. It is one of the most popular times of the year for Starbucks. The beloved sakura latte and frappuccino usually come into the spotlight with the many sakura Japan Starbucks drinks.

From special “sakuraberry” and soy lattes to sakura milk with strawberry jelly and sakura milk pudding frappuccinos. There are even drinks that have a sakura tree design in the milk foam made with chocolate sauce and sakura shavings.

Cheaper options for Starbucks lovers are the Starbucks konbini (convenience store) drinks. You can get the sakura smoothie in any fridge section of the konbini. The smooth is flavored with sakura and mixed with vanilla, plus a layer of strawberry jelly on the bottom. It even comes with its tiny green straw to drink with, like the stem of the cherry blossom!

Tully’s Coffee

Tully’s Coffee is a popular coffeehouse that adds a dazzling range of cherry blossom treats every year! They offer delicious-looking pink drinks. And one that always sits on the hot spot is the sakura tea cappuccino. It combines royal milk tea and a rich sakura-flavored sauce with pink chocolate shavings.

Matcha and sakura is a match made in heaven, and at Tully’s Coffee, you can enjoy their sakura matcha latte. It comes filled with the rich flavor of matcha powdered green tea. The green drink is topped off with whipped cream and sakura sauce, combining sweet and tart flavors.

Try the sakura-scented pistachio chocolate drink, a blend of Lindt white chocolate, pistachio paste, and cherry blossom sauce. The top is finished with a sweet and sour sakura foam with a hint of cherry blossoms. 

Another fan’s favorite is the sakura caramelized chocolate drink. The beverage’s base is white chocolate, with a blend of two types of cherry, achieving a pretty light pink color. But the cherry on top of the cake is the pink caramel flakes and the sakura-shaped chocolate. There’s also a clear sakura sauce, which helps give it a tantalizingly glossy look. All to give the gorgeous impression of falling sakura dancing in the wind.
