Ginza is first place for Starbucks when they landed in Japan in 1996.
Now you can find many Starbucks stores in Ginza area, but most of them are very compact because of Ginza’s high cost space issue..
So which store is better when you are with stroller or toddler?
Those are my personal recommendation in order.
(*within 5min walk around Ginza station)
(*All stores has Free-wifi)
■STARBUCKS STORE at GINZA SIX (6F) TSUTAYA BOOKS
I recommend most this store (in ginza area ) because
1: wider space than other stores in Ginza,
2: There are many arts and books around so you can enjoy while kids are sleeping on stroller,
3: There are roof top garden kids can walk around safely on the 13F – parents also can drink coffee in relax (when weather is fine)
As there are no regular drink&food store on roof top garden, get coffee at Starbucks on 6F or 1F(or 2F) is the best way. Then take good rest on the roof top garden while toddler enjoy little walk.
There are two elevator. To go up to 13F(roof top garden), use “NORTH” elevator. South elevator go only up to 12F. From south side 12F, need to use stairs to come up roof top garden.
Ginza SIX & urban garden
■STARBUCKS STORE GINZA SIX (1F&2F)
There are also another stores at Ginza SIX, on the office entrance side (back street side).
This one is more for busy workers, so inside store is small.
Good to enjoy coffee at small terrace seats on 2F, or also good to go 13F as mentioned earlier.
■STARBUCKS RESERVE STORE Ginza Marronnier-dori
First “Reserve store” in Ginza, renewed in 2019.
Food selection is much different than others – joy for parents. (Bakery by Princi)
Most of seats are on 2F. Ask staff for elevator if you are with stroller.
