Starbucks: Japan

Whenever I'm in a metropolitan region of Japan, the first thing I want to do is go to Starbucks. Despite many resemblances to its American counterpart, Starbucks Japan is a whole lot more bad-ass.
First of all, it offers the elusive "Short  size", which is a size smaller than the smallest size in the US, the Tall size. Secondly, it offers special beverages that are not  for sale in the US.

In Winter of 2008, my favorite drink was the Tiramisu latte. This is an image of the back of the cup, which I was surprised to find in English, and more surprised to find the English free of grammatical errors.

More recently, in Fall of 2010, I fell in love with the new flavor Creme Brulee!

I must have had one every day I was in Osaka. I even tried it Iced, though it disappointingly tasted just like a regular iced caramel macchiato.
