For the time being, eight prefectures in Hokkaido, Saitama, Chiba, Tokyo, Kanagawa, Kyoto, Osaka, and Hyogo will be open only for take-out.

The five prefectures of Ibaraki, Ishikawa, Gifu, Aichi and Fukuoka will resume operations in the store.

In addition, approximately 350 stores in 34 other prefectures, which had been open only for takeaways, will also be reopened.

On the other hand, approximately 350 stores in commercial facilities that are closed will continue to be closed.

In addition to allowing customers to keep their space between customers by reducing the number of seats in the store and changing the arrangement of seats, the company says it will take thorough measures to prevent infection, such as restricting entry to the store when it is crowded.

The coffee chain is moving to reopen stores that have been closed in Doutor Coffee and Tully’s.
