The Stand is a takeaway drinks and snack bar at the entrance of Japan House, on the ground floor. Stop by to try authentic Japanese teas, such as hot or iced matcha, hojicha and sencha teas, as well as hot or iced matcha latte and hojicha latte.
Kissaten coffee is also available at The Stand. It is named after kissaten, old style Japanese tearooms that also serve coffee and sweets. The coffee is brewed with the pour over method, using specialist kit from Japanese manufacturer HARIO. A selection of baked goods is on offer Saturday to Monday each week, which consists of seasonally flavoured cakes and biscuits with a Japanese twist.
*Guests ordering takeaway refreshments from The Stand and who wish to browse the Ground Floor while waiting for their order are required by UK Government guidelines to supply their contact information, and are encouraged to use the NHS Test and Trace app.
