Sip the Pink Dream: Sakura Latte Takes Over Lawson Tokyo (Machi Cafe+)

Spring has sprung in Tokyo, and with it comes one of Japan’s most anticipated seasonal delights – the Sakura Latte.

This seasonal drink is now available at Lawson, a popular Japanese convenience store chain, adding a touch of cherry blossom magic to its Machi Cafe+ line-up.

Yes, the drink is only available in Lawson with Machi Cafe+ on site and there are only seven of such outlets in Tokyo. The drinks are freshly prepared upon order by in-house baristas, which are known as Fantasistas.

The Sakura Latte costs 380 yen (SGD$3.50), and is available on the menu since Tuesday, February 27.


The Sakura Latte is a pink floral concoction that embodies the charm of cherry blossom season.

This seasonal latte blends sweet strawberry and delicate cherry blossom flavours for a indulgent springtime drink. The real showstopper is the topping. A cloud of fluffy marshmallow rests atop the warm latte, releasing a sweet aroma. Completing the ensemble, it’s sprinkled with a chocolate mix imbued with natural cherry blossom leaves and flowers. This adds a visually appealing touch and a unique flavour twist, making each sip a celebration of spring.

Picture yourself sipping it under a canopy of cherry blossom trees for the ultimate experience!
