Determining whether a coffee shop is a Starbucks is rather easy. There’s the green accent color, the long line, and the fact that, you know, it says “Starbucks” on the front of the building. Well that’s not the case with the company’s latest venture. Housed inside a 100-year-old townhouse that was formerly inhabited by geishas, this Starbucks is devoid of all the classic Starbucks trimmings. Inside you’ll find three matted rooms, where guests must remove their shoes and follow customs, along with gardens and bamboo walls. They even did away with the lines, as they are forbidden to extend outside the shop out of respect to the town. If you want to drink your Unicorn Frappucino in peace, this is where to do it.
