    The starbucks designed by Kengo Kuma will be opening on December 16, 2011 in Fukuoka, Japan. This will be the very first Starbucks Coffee which is on the historical entrance path to a shrine. (Dazaifu Tenman-gu Shrine)

      going back to their roots? weren't the first starbucks designed by seattle architect george suyama?

      glad to see them rethinking the horrid banality they spewed all over the world.

      That's true. At least Starbucks Japan is trying to make it different, probably.   As you can see this website page, there are some other conceptual stores in Japan which are more go green kind of design.    Btw, I heard that the most selling Starbucks in the world is one in Ginza, Japan.
