Starbucks Just Opened Their Biggest Branch in the World

It's just a plane ride away!

(SPOT.ph) If you're a big Starbucks afficionado, there are a lot of their branches all over the world to check out. The newest one you should add to your bucketlist is their Starbucks Reserve Roastery in Tokyo, which is currently their biggest branch in the world.

The new Starbucks Reserve Roastery is beside Meguro River, famous for the cherry blossom trees along its bank.

The four-storey branch will have a menu of over 100 unique coffee and tea beverages, as well as bread and pastries by Princi Italia, the first in Japan. The space is gorgeous, too: It is designed by Liz Muller, Starbucks chief design officer and architect Kengo Kuma, who both took inspiration from cherry blossom trees that line the Meguro River.

Its roastery will also be home to the world's largest Starbucks Roastery coffee cask, which is over 55 feet of blush-tinted copper that's adorned with cherry-blossom designs. There's also a floor dedicated to a Teavana bar, also the biggest in the world, where you can get exclusive tea-based drinks like Pop'n Tea Sakura Jasmine, with a hibiscus-and-cherry popsicle atop a cup of jasmine tea.
