As part of a series of innovative concept shops in Japan, the Kamakura Starbucks is designed to resemble a wooden Japanese-style home. The shop is located in Sagami Bay in the city of Kamakura. It features high ceilings and an open plan space with the standard communal tables and sofas. Though the shop really diverts from the norm with its addition of terrace seating around a backyard pool.

The Kamakura Starbucks is built on the spot of famous manga artist Ryuichi Yokoyama’s former residence. During his lifetime, Kamakura was a central area where cartoonists got together to socialize. According to Starbucks, the cartoonists gathered to enjoy watching the cherry trees, sit by the pool, and drink coffee every afternoon.
