East Area Gourmet


THE ALLEY LUJIAOXIANG, originated from Taiwan and is the most popular tea stand in Japan. It is located on the food floor of Lumine 1. Almost every evening when I pass through that shop, there is a long line-up. Since this shop always has a line-up, it is not easy to buy but may be the best time to visit is in the morning time or around 4 o’clock.


There is a small space where you can drink. (standing bar)

This shop serves special tapioca prepared at shops everyday and is finished up with homemade syrup. The combination of milk tea and black tea with tapioca is outstanding! Here you can enjoy the fine smell and taste of 4 different kinds of tea leaves.

・Royal No.9 Tapioca Milk Tea
