Famous sightseeing spots come together for a very special souvenir. 

While some famous fizzy drink brands add weird and wonderful flavours to their range in Japan, Coca-Cola has been cornering the market with a growing collection of limited-edition bottles dedicated to different regions around the country.

Most recently, we’ve seen collectible Coke bottles made exclusively for areas like Shikoku, Osaka, and Hiroshima, and now Coca-Cola is expanding the range yet again, to include the country’s southernmost island of Okinawa.

The new design is the 27th regional-exclusive bottle for the brand in Japan, and like the others in the range, this one comes with some beautiful images that pay homage to famous sights in the region.

The Okinawa bottle features Shureimon, a famous gate at Shuri Castle in the capital city of Naha, along with an image of a slow-swimming whale shark, which is the star of Churaumi Aquarium. On the rear of the bottle, you’ll find a clownfish swimming amongst sea anemones, which is a nod to the area’s rich sea-life and diving culture.

▼ According to Coca-Cola, these images help to convey the relaxed, laid-back atmosphere of the island.

It’s a great advertisement for Okinawa, and people wanting to get their hands on one of these will have to travel there to get one. The new bottle will be available to purchase at stores, souvenir shops, and vending machines on the island from 1 April.

If you’re on Japan’s mainland, don’t despair – you might not be able to get an Okinawan Coke bottle, but you will be able to drink from a limited-edition sakura bottle during this year’s hanami flower-viewing season!
