Jingu Mae 6 Chome (神宮前6丁目店)

This is one of my favorite Starbucks stores
tucked away inside a building along a very crowded street.

They were promoting their teas here.
I love how they gift wrap everything in the boxes.
Makes it easier to send things to people.

What's so great about this store is that
although it's located inside a building,
you can enjoy the spacious terrace out back.
And because it's placed in between buildings,
it blocks out all the noise from the street.
Really great spot to enjoy sitting outside in the city.

My sweet friend from college.
Don't you just love how her nails match the siren logo?

EXPASA Ashigara Service Area (EXPASA足柄サービスエリア(上り線)店)

This is the Ashigara service area on the other side of the freeway,
the one that heads back towards Tokyo.
And yes, we stopped here, too.

This Starbucks store was a lot smaller
and also located inside the service area building.
It was also very crowded.

This is the Soy Card we get when ordering a soy drink.
We give this to the barista handing out the drinks,
so they can double check to make sure you have soy.

EXPASA Ashigara Service Area (EXPASA足柄サービスエリア(下り線)店)

This is the Ashigara service area on the Tomei freeway.
It's a big service area with a huge food court and shops,
which is why it's always packed with people.

We stopped here on our way to Mt. Fuji
because it also has a Starbucks store.

I love how this Starbucks store uses bricks.

Starbucks Cold Cup Tumblers

Starbucks stores in service areas along freeways
have Danish Rusk on their menus for a limited time.

It was good and we ate it all in a matter of seconds.
I think we need them in a bigger cup.
