Coca-Cola Japan brings out a new design bottle exclusive to Okinawa

By Oona McGee, SoraNews24

While some famous fizzy drink brands add weird and wonderful flavors 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.

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 April 1.

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!

It's wonderful! The design is cute and shows something popular in Okinawa. I really want it! I wish I could get it in other prefectures in Japan!

it is no doubt a coincidence that this comes at a time of heightened tension between Okinawa and the US regarding the relocation of the military base...get the young to think how cool (or kawaii) this is and they may forget what else the US is doing on the island.

Sugar water and chemicals. I do not care what the cover says. Avoid and drink some H2O. Your body and future health will thank you.
