Tottori Starbucks opening draws 1,000 people

About 1,000 people lined up Saturday for the opening of the first Starbucks outlet in Tottori Prefecture.

Japan’s least populated prefecture was the last in which the coffee chain lacked a presence.

The outlet, near a train station in the city of Tottori, the prefectural capital, started forming lines from around noon Friday. About 150 people had gathered by midnight to camp out for the opening.
