World’s first Starbucks coffee shop with tatami rooms to open in Kyoto

Japan’s ancient capital of Kyoto has many tourist attractions to offer, from its historic sites to scenic landscapes, and is now adding a new one to its list — the world’s first Starbucks coffee shop with tatami rooms.

Starbucks Coffee Japan Ltd., the Japanese arm of U.S. coffee chain Starbucks Coffee Co., plans to open a new coffee shop Friday that it touts as its first coffee outlet in the world to have tatami floors in a Japanese-style house.

Starbucks Coffee Japan said a two-story Japanese home built more than 100 years ago will be used for the shop, and it will be located near the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Kiyomizu temple, a popular tourist destination.
