Situated inside a 100-year old Japanese townhouse, the Starbucks Coffee Kyoto Ninenzaka Yasaka Tea Parlor is a newly created coffee shop by the international coffee brand that sits subtly into the neighborhood. The new location features ornate styling and ample spaces to sit that are spread across the entire two-floor townhouse. This includes three rooms on the second floor where guests can remove their shoes to sit on tatami mats and three courtyards with stone water basins and beautiful gardens.
The Starbucks Coffee Kyoto Ninenzaka Yasaka Tea Parlor will have a grand opening on June 30 and comes 21 years after the brand first expanded in the Asian country. The new coffee shop retains much of the structure's original charm in order to make it a beautiful, tranquil spot to enjoy a brewed beverage.
