    For the Design

    I've walked past this Starbucks designed by architect Kengo Kuma several times but hadn't been inside until now. It's interesting from the outside, but inside it's like a strange cave or tunnel with wooden cedar beams cris-crossing over the interior walls. It almost gives the feeling of nature, but the beams are all the same size, so it's more industrial than that. Besides the back of the cafe is a glass wall with a view of a traditional style Japanese garden. All of the spaces on this side of the street have this kind of view for guests to enjoy the seasons from inside. As a starbucks, it was just very crowded with tired tourists, and barely any seats available. I could hear a few languages because most of the tourists to this area are from South Korea and China. Staff was cheerful like they were used to being nonstop busy all the time. If you're going to go to a Starbucks, might as well make it a good experience with great design.
