Starbucks in Japan

Posted by Jessica on Mar 19th 2019

When you go to major cities in Japan you will be surprised the number of Starbucks. There are currently 1,392 stores in Japan.
Japanese Starbucks have original beverage menus and offer original mug cups! Sometimes baristas will draw cute pictures on your cup, like the above picture.
Some stores have a unique look. Kobe Kitano Monogatari Museum, located in Hyogo Prefecture has an atmosphere that mixes nostalgic and western styles. Dazaifu Tenmangu Omotesando, located in Fukuoka Prefecture, has a wood architecture, built using traditional wooden frame work. Kyoto Sanjo Ohashi in Kyoto Prefecture, has kawa-doko or river terrace so you enjoy the cool air. The Meguro store located in Tokyo, near Meguro Station, has a Japanese style concept with the atmosphere completely different to other stores.
If you like Starbucks, then we suggest visiting at least one, while in Japan. With the different menu and atmosphere, it is interesting to see the uniqueness that goes into each store.
