This is the coolest Starbucks this side of Asia, and it’s located in Dazaifu, a city about a half hour southeast of Fukuoka. As I’ve been told, the city was the birthplace of Japanese zen. So fittingly, it has a Starbucks that is supposed to blend in perfect harmony with its surroundings, leading up to the historical and culturally important Tenmangu Shrine. If I lived in Dazaifu, I’d come here everyday to edit my photos while sipping Tazo Zen tea. You know, because Starbucks doesn’t have enough customers working away on their MacBooks.
Can’t argue against USA Today’s Coolest Starbucks in the World list!
