THE ALLEY LUJIAOXIANG, originated from Taiwan 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 line-up, it is not easy to buy but may be the best time to visit is in the morning or around 4 o’clock.


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