[Edit] Changed the title to ‘Asia’. I was right, it’s not just Taiwan but the whole Asian region that’s getting this collection. The Philippines’ release date is February 23rd. Although we got very limited designs, we were the first to release the collection. Hong Kong and Singapore release is February 24th. Other countries’ release dates TBA [/Edit]
Hear ye hear ye! Here’s a preview of the 2016 Sakura Collection from Taiwan to be released on February 24th and March 3rd (see below) this year. There’s a good chance the rest of us in the Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Korea, Hong Kong etc. will get these ones, too!
Loving these first few ones here. These speak nothing but classy. Apparently, they’re going for a day/night theme. The midnight blue ceramic tumbler reminds me of the 2005 Japan mug.
L-R: SAKURA NIGHT TO GO (12oz) | DELICATE SAKURA TO GO (12oz) | DAY and NIGHT TIME DEMI 2PC SET (3oz)
L-R: MAKE A RIPLE SET W COASTER | FROLIC SAKURA (10oz) | CERAMIC SS AIRY FLORAL | SS12 FLIP&SIP AIRY PETAL | SAKURA SS THERMOS WATERBOTTLE (400mL)

These accessories are (most likely) Taiwan-exclusive. I’m seeing a pattern here. Last year’s Taiwan coasters looked like Korea’s coasters in 2014. This year’s Taiwan coaster looks like Korea’s coasters last year. LOL
