A Bubble Tea Theme Park Is Coming To Tokyo
If you’re as obsessed with bubble tea as pretty much everyone in Asia, you need to start planning a trip to Tokyo. While bubble tea — which consists of tea, milk, sugar, and toppings (known as “pearls”) like tapioca balls, popping boba, fruit jelly, or grass jelly — originated in Taiwan, Japan has announced plans to open a bubble-tea-themed amusement park. Tokyo Tapioca Land is opening in front of Tokyo’s Harajuku Station from August 13 to September 16.
Sneak peeks into its exact appearance haven’t been revealed, but it promises to feature food and drink stalls, 10 photo booths, celebrity ambassadors, a tapioca-themed ride, and, of course, plenty of bubble tea. According to SoraNews24, tapioca will be used in everything, from the food and drink to the aesthetic and even the attractions. Tapioca shops are also slated to open temporary locations here, so don’t worry, there will definitely be enough tapioca to go around. The park will be easily accessible, located a short walk from Harajuku Station and the metro’s Meiji Jingu-mae Station. This accessibility, however, means you can expect some pretty huge crowds, so you should get there as early in the day as possible.
Tickets cost $9.27 pre-sale and $11.13 at the door, and unsurprisingly, pre-sale tickets have already sold out. For more ticket information, you can visit the official ticket site.
