One of America’s hottest coffee shops, Blue Bottle Coffee, now has branches in Tokyo! Its flagship roastery and cafe, in the residential shitamachi area of Kiyosumi,opened last month. Their cafe in Aoyama opened March 7th and they’ll have a kiosk soon in the Aoyama Tartine Bakery building, currently under construction. That’s the good news! The bad news is … everyone else knows this too. Be prepared for a wait. Lines of customers go winding down the street and on average, it takes an hour to get inside.
Directions to the stores will follow soon.
