Starbucks Japan

Starbucks, of course every one knows, is also popular in Japan. Their seasonal offer is always unique and exciting because they introduce limited edition beverages almost every month, and they usually use seasonal ingredients and make a special drink out of it. Not just that, but Starbucks in Japan have different size options too. Since it is not so common for Japanese people to consume large portion, Starbucks Japan offer Short (S) along with Tall, Grande and Venti. Short is super small, so if you just want a quick sip or just want to try a new drink, you can choose Short and you'll be all set.
