Now unless you've been hiding under a rock for the past few decades, you know what Starbucks is. They are pretty much everywhere in Japan, much like within the States. If i don't see a Doutor in the area, I head over to the local Starbucks. I like how in Japan they take milk allergies very seriously. They hand you this placard that says either "almond milk" or "soy mlik" and you hold onto it until you receive your drink at the pickup counter. You then handover the placard to the employee who hands you the drink, to confirm that you did in fact receive your alternative milk option. I love this. As someone who has a very serious milk allergy, this makes me feel comforted. I wish that the US locations would adopt this!
