If you're like me who prefers working remotely in a cafe but dread sharing the same table with other customers, Starbucks, in collaboration with marketing firm Think Lab has opened a new store in Ginza.

Of course the first floor operates pretty much like your bread and butter Starbucks, with a contactless hand-off counter that's part of the new normal. The second floor is the best part where it's fitted out with solo working spaces in the form of individual booths - perfect if you have a video call booked on your calendar and you want that macchiato fix sorted out. The booths are managed by Think Lab, can be booked in advance, and costs ¥300 (approx USD 2.83) for 15 minutes.

If you happen to be in Tokyo, feel free to send us photos of the place and chime in.

    I may be alone on the planet - but have never been to starbucks - anywhere, ever...don't drink coffee. Not sure if I should be embarrassed or, like, 'you go, girl'...

    I go to SB, occasionally, especially since they gave me a free cup of ice, (l tried to give them a big tip, but wouldn't accept it) without having to buy anything else.
