    Sitting by the Meguro river, the Starbucks store seems like a highly advanced, cutting edge cathedral, but there's more than meets the eye.

    Step inside, and you just might think you have time-travelled into the future. While modern copper pipes intersect around the huge 17-metre-tall coffee cask, the 2,100 handmade copper cherry blossoms, dangling from the ceiling, are a nod to the sakura trees lined up outside.

    Right on the top floor, you'll find the AMU Inspiration Lounge, a stylish and cosy space for locals to hold functions, as well as coffee professionals to host events like barista training and seminars.

    Here at the Main Bar, customers can watch as baristas create their drinks, as well as shop exclusive merchandise like mugs, coffee cups and stationery. While there are many futuristic design features, the designer made sure to incorporate restful Japanese elements like minimalist light wood. One floor up is the Teavana Bar, inspired by the Japanese' culture of tea, offering exclusive tea drinks and desserts.
