Japanese architect Kengo Kuma designed a Starbucks coffee at Dazaifutenmangu in Fukuoka, Japan. Dazaifutenmangu is one of the largest shrines in Japan and about 2 million people visit the shrine every year. Kuma’s aim was to design a cafe that harmonizes with the traditional environment. This is the first time that Starbucks coffee outsources their architectural project.
