A huge 3000-square-meter retail space designed by noted architect Kengo Kuma, this is the largest Starbucks branch in the world, and the fifth in their series of Reserve Roasteries. A 17-meter-tall copper cask is the centerpiece of the interior, rising up through the four levels of the shop.

In addition to the usual coffee and dessert drinks, the main counter on the ground floor serves unique coffee-based beverages such as a barrel-aged cold brew (Y1200), which is made with beans that have been aged in whiskey barrels.

Up on the second floor there's a tea bar, serving 18 loose-leaf teas and various tea-based drinks, and the third-floor Arriviamo bar features coffee- and tea-based cocktails. The bar offers unusual drinks such as the Nakameguro Espresso Martini (chestnut liqueur, creme de cacao, espresso) as well as wine and beer.
