If you're visiting Japan to catch the cherry blossoms this year, you might want to get your hands on this pretty sakura-themed Coke bottle as well.

The slim, white aluminium bottle is adorned with pink cherry blossom leaves, and will be available for a limited time during spring from Feb 13 for 125 yen (S$1.60).

Coca-Cola Japan touts it as a great way to celebrate not only hanami (cherry blossom-viewing parties), but also hina-matsuri (Girls' Day) on March 3, when Japanese families wish and pray for the future happiness of girls. The 250ml bottle is also advertised as a gift idea for students who are entering their new tertiary schools in April.

It's a pity that the bottle contains the usual Coke and not a sakura-flavoured beverage.

While rival Pepsi has already come up with a sakura-flavoured cola last year, Coca-Cola Japan only got as close as making sakura milk tea, which was released for a limited time last month.
