Think of hot drinks in Japan and you probably think of green tea. But the Japanese are also big coffee drinkers – with Japan among the top importers of coffee in the world.

Raw coffee

You’ll find coffee, both hot and cold, in the country’s ubiquitous vending machines, and specialist coffee shops are now common in big cities – from chain stores to independent coffee houses.

Homemade coffee

In Tochigi Prefecture, Hoshino Resorts KAI Nikko has created its own unique coffee. Mori-no Shizuku is a blend of Nikko Coffee that mixes Brazilian beans with Indonesian Mandheling from the island of Sumatra. The result is the smooth fruitiness of Mandheling combined with the chocolatey flavours of Brazilian beans.

Plants of coffee

We’re giving away a pack of this unique coffee in this month’s contest, along with two classic Mashiko-yaki cups, handmade using clay from Mashiko, a village in Tochigi known throughout Japan for its exemplary pottery.

Try to win Nikko coffee and two Mashiko-yaki cups!
