2 mins read


There are only a few collaborations that can stand the test of time: Gundam and coffee cans, Evangelion and trains, Konami and pachinko machines. But none is as on-brand as Golden Kamuy and Sapporo Beer, which are celebrating their fifth anniversary collaborating this year with yet more beers going on sale–this time with special coasters!


Golden Kamuy, Sapporo Beer





Since 2018, Golden Kamuy has worked with Sapporo Beer’s Classic brand to help revitalize Hokkaido by selling Golden Kamuy-illustrated cans. The cans are only available in Hokkaido prefecture in Japan’s north, making the collaboration extra special.


This year’s cans will release in stores on April 18 for a limited time in both a 350ml and 600ml configuration in six-packs. Each pack will also come with special coasters that feature Sugimoto, Shiraishi, Tsurumi, Hijikata, Ogata and Ushiyama holding Sapporo Classic cans.

The fourth season of Golden Kamuy officially started on October 3 with Episode 37 but was put on hold due to the passing of a main staff member. The series will resume with the first episode of season four in April. The first three seasons are currently streaming on Crunchyroll, which describes the series:


The story takes place in the mighty Northern field of Hokkaido, the time is in the turbulent late Meiji Era. A post war soldier Sugimoto, aka, “Immortal Sugimoto” was in need of large sums of money for a particular purpose….


What awaited Sugimoto, who stepped into Hokkaido’s Gold Rush with dreams of making a fortune, was a tattoo map leading to a hidden treasure based on hints inscribed on the bodies of convicts in Abashiri Prison?! The magnificent nature of Hokkaido vs vicious convicts and the meeting with a pure Ainu girl, Ashiripa!! A survival battle for a hidden treasure hunt begins!
