All of the designs are hugely popular.
Due to the popularity in all the regions as a bottle which is just appropriate with meals and refreshment during travel or as a souvenir, and the increasing number of customers, we have decided to additionally release 6 regional bottles; Five-Storied Pagoda in Kohfukuji and Deer＜Nara Design＞, Tsurugajo Castle and Akabeko (red cow), Okiagarikoboshi (tumble doll)＜Aizu Design＞, Hachiko statue and Shibuya streetscape ＜Shibuya Design＞, A Lady in Kimono and a Colored Carp, ＜Tokyo Omotenashi Design＞, Mt.

In each design, symbols and sightseeing spots of each region are designed iconically in illustration.
Since "Coca-Cola" Slim Bottle Regional Design comes in the stylish shape unique to "slim bottles" and the 250ml drink-up size, when you drink it with meals during travel or when you want to take a rest and refresh your mind, it will boost your travelling mood further. It is just appropriate as a commemorative item for trip, as a souvenir for family and friends, or for foreign travelers to enjoy the Japanese taste. It is also recommended to people who love their local area, or enjoy the feeling of hometown at a homecoming visit in summer. Each design will be released at places centering on souvenir stores, local products shops, supermarkets, vending machines in each region.
"Coca-Cola" Slim Bottle is a premium package which succeeded the figure of the signature "contour bottle", which is distinguishable as a "Coca-Cola" bottle by only touching even in a darkness. The ice-cold feeling enhances good taste and refreshment of "Coca-Cola", and delivers special drinking experience to customers. It features the high-quality design, and ever since launched in Japan in July 2015, it has been enjoyed by many people, ranging from the "Coca-Cola" fans to those who don't usually drink carbonated soft drinks by releasing the regional designs which feature sightseeing spots and symbols throughout Japan, as well as seasonal designs featuring cherry blossoms, fireworks, and red leaves, etc., the designs commemorating the Olympic and FIFA World Cup in 2016 and 2018, and the Restoration Design commemorating 150th anniversary of Meiji era.
"Coca-Cola" Slim Bottle Regional Design is now available in more areas with the good taste unique to "Coca-Cola" and packages featuring regional sightseeing spots.
