A limited time event at JR Kyoto Isetan

Venue: JR Kyoto Isetan When: May 19th - Jun 15th 2021

From May 19th (Wednesday) to June 15th (Tuesday), a Blue Bottle Coffee pop-up event will be making its way to the JR Kyoto Isetan department store. The company got started in California back in 2002, and have expanded to a host of different cities, including New York, Seoul, Hong Kong, and several spots right here in Japan.

The pop-up store will offer several merchandise sets available for purchase, which include Blue Bottle coffee beans along with items like tote bags and eco-friendly cups. The store won't be retailing ready-to-drink coffee, but if you do need a caffeine fix there is a branch of Blue Bottle Coffee near Nanzenji Temple - you can find details about it here.

I'm an expat who has lived abroad for almost a decade, including 7 years in Japan. I've also visited 44 of 47 prefectures and hope to get to the last three someday! I'm particularly fond of exploring off the beaten path destinations, gardens, and tea houses, and have a real interest in Japan's growing vegan scene.
