Bubble tea or ‘Boba’ is a beloved beverage in most parts of Asia. However, the country most obsessed with the fizzy concoction (as well all know) is – Japan! After introducing the likes of tapioca ramen, tapioca beer and even official Pokémon-inspired tapioca drinks, the nation is now gearing up for the unveiling of a full-fledged Bubble tea-themed park! Yes, that’s right!
Christened as the ‘Tapioca Land’, the one-of-its-kind theme park is set to open for a limited time in Harajuku, Tokyo. It will be situated in a newly built shopping area called “jing”, which is about a two-minute walk from JR Harajuku station, and directly accessible from Tokyo Metro’s Meiji Jingu-Mae Station. Touted to be a heaven of sorts for bubble tea lovers, the adventure land will offer all kinds of bubble teas and tapioca-based foods from various popular shops in Japan.
The park will also include dedicated photo booths where one can snap a shot of themselves with their favorite tapioca drink, amongst other attractions. It will remain open from August 13 to September 16 in front of Harajuku Station with only 1,000 pre-sale tickets (each priced at 1,000-yen or approximately US$9.20) available for sale. Well if you love bubble tea as much as the Japanese do- head over to the ‘Tapioca Land’ for the time of your life!
