New Starbucks Japanese Okinawa Mug
This has to definitely be one of my favourite Japanese Starbucks Mug designs. As I mentioned in my previous post about the old Okinawa Starbucks Mug I absolutely LOVE Okinawa! It has it’s own unique culture and language and this mug really reflects that as well as it’s ocean, tropical vibe.
I LOVE the guardian lion, Shisa and think it was a brilliant idea on the artist’s part to illustrate the two lions as a blend of guardian beast and lobster/yabbie to really make them unique to Okinawa. The colours are beautiful and really does remind me of where this mug is from. Well done Starbucks!
Note, this video I filmed of the mug was filmed in Zushi Beach which is near Tokyo and not in the beautiful white sandy beaches of Okinawa which are in a class of their own.
