This pop-up attraction in Harajuku has crammed with all things boba, including a pit crammed with giant balls that appear as if tapioca pearls.
It’s someone’s idea of bubble tea heaven.
Tokyo Tapioca Land might not sound as grand as Tokyo Disneyland, but the new pop-up attraction within the Tokyo has drawn its justifiable share of fans – specifically those that love bubble tea.
Located within the city’s colorful fashion district right ahead of Harajuku railway station, during a shopping area called “jing”, Tapioca Land may be a bubble tea lover’s idea of boba heaven. The pop-up opened on Aug 13 and can be available until Sep 16.
Space is crammed with Instagram-worthy photo booths to capture the right picture to inform the planet that you’re having a bubble-tastic time. There’s also a set of popular bubble tea stands, including Lab Lap by Cha-Nom Tokyo, and a pit crammed with giant balls that appear as if tapioca pearls.

For just ¥1200 (S$15.70) per person, which incorporates a welcome drink, you’ll enjoy your love of the sweet treat and take cute photos to your heart’s content. One thousand pre-sale tickets at ¥1000 each were sold out when the event was first announced in July.
For those 20 years and older, there’s also an adults-only Tapioca Land Nights on Friday evenings which will serve milk tea-based cocktails.
Tapioca Land is organized by the Tokyo Photogenic Team, which also gave us Tokyo frozen dessert Land in 2017 and Tokyo Donut Land in 2018.

Reactions to Tapioca Land are mixed, though, with some visitors unhappy over the steep ticket price, no re-entry and lack of restrooms. However, if you’d wish to spend a couple of hours surrounded by all things milk tea, you would possibly find the entire thing kawaii.
