20 years ago, Starbucks was introduced to Kyoto and Hyogo Prefecture for the first time.

To celebrate this very special anniversary, Starbucks Japan will sell a special Kyoto Erai Matcha Matcha Frappuccino in Kyoto and a Hyogo Bari Choco Haitto Frappuccino in Hyogo. Both beverages are meant to represent the city they are dedicated to.

Hyogo, home to Kobe, a famous port city, is known as an entry point for international trade. As such, it has also seen its fair share of sweets and chocolate since it opened its harbor for trading in 1868.

The Hyogo Bari Choco Haitto Frappuccino is made with a chocolate frappuccino base laced with chocolate sauce and dark chocolate chips, topped with chocolate whipped cream, dark mocha powder, and more chocolate sauce. A great drink for any chocolate lover.

When people think of Kyoto, they often think of high-quality matcha green tea, so the choice was obvious. Kyoto Erai Matcha Matcha Frappuccino literally means Kyoto's Great Double Matcha Frappuccino. The mixture of cream and high-quality matcha from Kyoto's Uji region evokes the image of Kyoto with its famous temples and gardens.

The whipped cream is topped with matcha and mocha powder. It is supposed to resemble the colors of the famous Kyoto leaves in autumn.

The Kyoto Erai Matcha Matcha Frappuccino and the Hyogo Bari Choco Haitto Frappuccino will be sold from November 12 until 21, 2019. The Kyoto Erai Matcha Matcha Frappuccino will only be sold in thirty-three Starbucks stores in Kyoto while the Hyogo Bari Choco Haitto Frappuccino will only be available at fifty-five locations in Hyogo. Both retail for 590 yen for the tall size.
