Located about an 8-minute walk from Kita-Senju Station, nestled in the quiet backstreets of a residential neighborhood, is “KiKi Kita-Senju.” This Japanese tea cafe opened in June 2020 after the renovation of a 90-year-old traditional house.
The cafe is run by the couple Masataro and Chisato, with Masataro having experience working at a specialty Japanese tea shop and Chisato being a designer. The interior exudes the warmth characteristic of traditional houses, offering a tatami seating area where visitors can leisurely enjoy their tea time.
KiKi Kita-Senju serves original blended Japanese teas. The tea blends were developed in collaboration with Mohei Honda, a tea master from Fuji City, Shizuoka, with the concept of creating teas that accompany various moments in life.
For moments of relaxation after a meal or a drink, there’s the blend of sencha and gyokuro called “FUU.” For focused work sessions, there’s the blend of sencha and herbs named “SUISUI.” And for calm conversations or home gatherings, there’s “GEKKO,” a roasted black tea. These three types of tea are tailored to various scenes of daily life and are available for purchase at the cafe or through their online shop.
KiKi Kita-Senju also serves as a rental space, hosting a variety of events such as exhibitions and sales of apparel and daily goods.
For event updates, you can check the cafe’s official Instagram or website. Additionally, due to the quaint seating arrangement with only four tatami seats, reservations via their official LINE account are recommended when planning a visit.
