Tokyo’s newest Starbucks outlet has finally opened inside the Hana Biyori greenhouse, which is part of a larger garden managed by the popular amusement park, Yomiuriland. Especially during the rainy season, when the weather is unpredictable and sudden downpours are not uncommon, this new café is a great place to enjoy greenery over a cup of coffee while keeping dry.
It's like walking into a floral fantasy of your Instagram dreams. The big hall is all decked out with blooming flower walls and hanging baskets planted with begonias, fuchsias, petunias, geraniums and bellflowers.
The open, light-filled space is a breath of fresh air and a sight for sore eyes. The lush, comfortable atmosphere has plenty of greenery to calm your mind – there’s even a communal table with a water feature.
Make a beeline for one of the counter seats facing the café’s 8m-long aquarium and you'll be treated to a mesmerising view of colourful coral fish from Okinawa.
As the greenhouse is inside Yomiuriland’s Hana Biyori botanical garden, you’ll have to fork out ¥1,200 (primary school students and children aged three and older ¥600) for the park entry to get to this unique Starbucks outlet.
