Starbucks JIMOTO Frappuccino from Yamanashi, Ishikawa and Okinawa
3 JIMOTO Frappuccino to be Sold Nationwide in Japan in Summer 2022
Last summer 2021 Starbucks Japan launch 47 JIMOTO Frappuccino to celebrate its 25th anniversary. Jimoto in Japanese means “home town/local”, and the 47 JIMOTO Frappuccino refer to the 47 prefectures in Japan. For this limited edition Starbucks made 47 different frappucinos, one for each prefecture, and they collaborated with local partners to create a special and unique flavour with local and famous ingredients from each place.
We explained more about this campaign in this article:
This limited edition was a great success and the public loved it. Part of the fun was that each special drink could only be purchased in that prefecture. So if you wanted to try the special frapuccino from Hokkaido, you had to travel there. But the the downside was that there were also many people who were unable to get some of the flavors they wanted to try.
For this people this summer 2022 Starbucks is selling three types of JIMOTO Frappuccino at Starbucks stores nationwide since August 3 (Wednesday) to August 31 (Wednesday), 2022! The JIMOTO Frappuccino from Yamanashi, Ishikawa, and Okinawa prefectures are being reintroduced from the 47 JIMOTO Frappuccino limited edition in response to the feedback from customers who wanted to try the frappuccinos from other prefectures.
The new frappuccinos are being sold at stores nationwide and the recipe for each JIMOTO Frappuccino has been updated for the re-launch, so the flavors have been brushed up to offer even more of a local taste!
