Cherry blossoms and Starbucks
Roastery Tokyo is one of six Starbucks Reserve
Roasteries in the world , opened in February 2019.
The word “Reserve” means a selection of rare special coffee beans.
“Roastery”means roasting place.
It is located along the Meguro River, which is popular for its cherry blossom trees, from Nakameguro Station in Tokyo.
It takes about 15 minutes on foot.
During the cherry blossom season, it becomes the most beautiful Starbucks in the world.
The light wood exterior was designed by architect Kengo Kuma.
He designed Japanese Olympic Stadium too.
Once inside, the four-story atrium space looks like a museum.
In the center, a roasting machine shines in reddish bronze.
The terrace seats overlook exactly the cherry blossoms, so you should wait in line after entering.
The food menu is more extensive than the usual Starbucks, and there is a well-stocked sales area on the ground floor.
How to go in during busy season
During busy times, you have to get a number from the QR code on the left side of the entrance and wait to be called at the entrance.
If you go before the store opens at 7:00 a.m., there is not much of a wait (we went around 7:30 a.m. and waited 20 minutes).
If you go around 10:00 am, the wait is likely to be 1-2 hours.
Today is cherry blossom season, so the coaster is also cherry blossom.
Would you like to experience it too?
I’m Nobu, one heart enjoy together!!!
