I don't frequent Starbucks that much in the US, way too overpriced. However, I've been to Starbucks twice in the last two days here. Not because it's cheaper -- still way overpriced here (probably even more so than in the US) -- no, but they have these great drinks! The first one I had was a green tea latte. Today I had a soy latte and get this, a sakura macaron! Starbucks is having a cherry blossom promotion with all sorts of drinks and snacks. Check it out!

Here is someone's flickr picture:

My favorite part about the Japanese Starbucks is that when you order a soy drink, they give you a card that says "soymilk." When you receive your drink, you give the card back to the barista. This ensures that you get a drink with soy, and not regular milk, thus cutting down on allergy accidents. Wish we had that in America!
