STARBUCKS is here!
OK. Maybe the nearest Starbucks Coffee Shop is still 45 minutes away, but 7-11 is now selling Starbucks Coffee's to go! Unfortunately, a hot cup of Joe is pretty much unheard of in Japan. However, coffee milk and assorted coffee drinks are found everywhere (including school lunches). Whether it is in a can, bottle or plastic cup... iced coffee is extremely popular in Japan.
I am just sorry this product wasn't out when my sister was here... it would have made my life a lot easier (FYI My sister is addicted to caffeine).
PS Did ya notice the scenery? Rice fields a plenty!
