Japanese Starbucks Sakura 2012 Coffee Mug

Being really impressed with the shape and design of the 2011 Sakura mug I was a bit disappointed to see that 2012’s Sakura mug returned to the super small, thin design of the 2010 Sakura mug.

The design is nice with some great colours and I’m surprised that they can create so many different designs of the same flower/tree (i.e. sakura / cherry blossom).

It’s a nice addition to my collection though honestly won’t be getting much use due to it’s volume (about half that of a regular mug).

watch on youtube

It’s worth noting that the Sakura mugs were only for sale for about a week this year which is MUCH shorter than usual. The reason? Starbucks Japan finally decided to update their Starbucks Tokyo City Mug with a new and much fresher design! Check back soon for my post on the new Tokyo Starbucks Mug!

Oh wow, this one is so purdy, with its soft colors and cute size (although not very practical).

Yeah, I do like it’s painted design. Just wish it was bigger lol 🙂

This one is so pretty! But it is so tiny! I probably wouldn’t use it either, I need lots of coffee/tea in the morning XD
