The spirit of the tea ceremony”Sa-Dou” – hospitality is all about entertaining
Along a colourful alley just south of Shijo-Karasuma, a fancy silhouette from a secluded inner yard immediately strikes the eye of the curious wanderer. Okaffe’s hospitality starts from here.

“A surprise to the eyes, an emotion to the senses. And the connection with our customers is born. Everything that is service becomes entertainment” – Okaffe’s owner and barista, Akihiro OKADA.
