Ikebukuro's newest shopping paradise, Wacca, is also home to this visit-worthy drink stand that prides itself on using only the finest, fresh tapioca pearls. Not frozen after boiling, as is the case at most bubble tea spots wherever you go, these fluffy goodies are supposed to add a touch of extra quality to the milk teas, fruit mixtures and green tea lattes on offer here. Most drinks go for around ¥300, and you're given a choice between warm and cold varieties for the flavourful teas and coffees. If you get tired of browsing Wacca's quirky shops (they even have a specialist store for cats), Sisters is the place to head for a refreshing break.
