Coca-Cola Japan unveils special New Year’s kimono bottle for 2019 with hidden boar on the packaging
Featuring the festive white, red, and gold colors of a Japanese New Year, the design will be adorned with a variety of plum blossoms, which are often used as decorations during the New Year period.
A symbol of beauty and an early harbinger of spring that people look forward to seeing in January and February, these plum blossoms add a celebratory element to the new coke bottle, making it perfect for festive get-togethers.
According to Coca-Cola, the glossy, brightly colored finish on the bottle also serves to resemble the exquisite cloth of a kimono, which many people choose to wear when attending traditional events and festivities at the start of the year.
Seeing as 2019 is the Year of the Boar, Coca-Cola have decided to add a wild pig into the design as well. The animal is carefully hidden amongst the blossoms, though, so people can have fun searching for it!
