It is almost spring in Japan and stores are already getting ready to welcome it by bringing some colour and warmth into the grey,cold and monotonous landscape of February. Sakura (cherry blossom) themed goods and treats, spring limited editions are already making their appearance in stores, the soft pink colour of the cherry blossoms gaining popularity not only in Japan, but all over the world.
During March/April everything seems to be sakura themed in Japan and in this article I will be introducing you a few of the 2019 year Spring Sakura Limited Editions.
First, let’s start with …
Each year, Starbucks has a new collection for every season or event such as Valentines Day, Halloween, Christmas etc.
In Japan, of course, one of the most popular and most-awaited is the sakura (cherry blossom) limited edition.

The Disney store brings you many sakura limited edition goods and treats such as pink Disney Characters dressed up in cute uniforms with cherry blossom motifs(Donald is definitely my favourite,so don’t forget to check it out in the link below), sakura mugs, fans, chopsticks and many others.
Between the treats, you can discover sakura cookies and my favourite: the pink and soft marshmallow filled with anko(red bean paste) and sakura. Such a delish!

Lupicia`s tea is the perfect choice for any occasion. During this season, they also release the sakura delights you can either buy in sets as a present for your beloved ones(or yourself) or separate. The gift sets usually come with two types of tea and cookies.
In this season, the spotlight is of course, the sakura tea and sakura cookies which I highly recommend.
