A Look Inside This Starbucks Modeled After A Japanese Teahouse
Starbucks’ latest venture in Kyoto, Japan, includes a new location in a traditional teahouse.
The new store, located in Kyoto’s Higashiyama district, will blend into a city filled with traditional temples and shrines. It will be housed in a building that is more than 100 years old and that served as a teahouse until it went out of business in 2005, Rocket News reports.
The interior features seating on the floor, and guests are asked to remove their shoes, as part of Japanese custom. Although it doesn’t look like a typical Starbucks, the coffee chain will offer its full menu at the Kyoto location.
