Starbucks in Japan where you can get a seat, easily
I've probably mentioned this a lot before, here and there, but in the case of the Starbucks that I see going about me daily business in Japan, almost all of them tend to be packed. Not that I'm massive fan but I prefer Starbucks to some of the other coffee chains in Japan like a Dotour or Veloce. To this end I thought if anyone out there knows of, or from now spots, a Starbucks where you're almost guaranteed to get a seat, maybe we could drop them here and, well, have some sort of list that we can all refer to.
One of my faves if you're in the outskirts of Tokyo Prefecture (think Ome, Fussa, Musashimurayama areas) is the one at ３-２-３ Enoki, Musashimurayama, Tokyo 208-0022. It's a newer store, loads of seating, really modern interior and an added bonus is they have drive thru if you don't have the time to pop inside!
Ken-o expressway Kawajima Interchange's branch of Starbucks on Route 254 (in the review section!!). They have indoor and outdoor seating. Its actually a relatively small branch and it is never empty, but I use the drive through from time to time and you can see the outdoor seating: always a couple of tables free. And on the handful of occasions I've physically gone into the store there is usually a free table or two.
