After announcing the launch of its Reserve Roastery in Tokyo back in 2016, Starbucks has now given a look inside the Kengo Kuma-designed space. The store is Starbucks’ fifth Reserve Roastery, and the third time that the concept has opened outside of North America, following the Milan location launched last year and the Shanghai space that opened in 2017.

Situated in the Nakameguro district of Tokyo, the Reserve Roastery’s design is inspired by the cherry blossom trees that line the Meguro river. The glass walls and terraced floors of the roastery are designed to blend into the surrounding neighborhood, as well as offering views of the cherry blossoms and river. Another influence on the design was the work of local craftspeople, who’s work is highlighted throughout the space. The roastery also features the AMU Inspiration Lounge, designed by Starbucks to host community gatherings and workshops.

The roastery is set to offer over 100 coffee and tea options, as well as serving Italian food and stocking exclusive merchandise. The space also boasts Starbucks Japan’s first cocktail lounge, located on the third floor of the Reserve Roastery. The Tokyo Starbucks Reserve Roastery is open now.
