Kaikado Café, Shop, and StudioKaikado has been handcrafting tea caddies from copper, tin, and brass since 1875. In 2017, its fifth-generation owner, Seiji Yagi, expanded the family business to include a café, located just a five-minute walk from Kaikado’s small workshop and flagship store in Kyoto’s Kawaramachi district. Housed in a 90-year-old listed building, the café immediately drew in Kyoto’s designers and architects with its bright interior comprising concrete walls, light golden oak tables, bookshelves, and copper lamps designed by Danish designers OeO and made by Kaikado. The minimalist eatery sells cheesecake and other goodies from the local bakery Hanakago, alongside blends from London’s Postcard Teas, brews from Tokyo’s Wani Coffee, and Kaikado's own house-made matcha.
