It was born out of a desire to create an opportunity to connect the current fragmented communication through “tea”.
BYSAKUU will be released from “SAKUU”, a Japanese tea cafe in JINNAN HOUSE, Tokyo. The name of the project is based on the word “SAKUU”, meaning “BYSA” (selling tea) + “KUU” (sky = expanding, open).
In this project, the theme of “communication” and “tea leaves” will be visually expressed and delivered with various artists.
The Japanese tea cafe “SAKUU”, located in the gallery “JINNAN HOUSE” in Jinnan, Shibuya, is launching a new project called “BYSAKUU”. Collaborating with various artists, it proposes communication through tea. The first item in the project, featuring collage artist Kosuke Kawamura, will go on sale on May 31 at the official website of JINNAN HOUSE.
The project proposes “communication connected by a cup of tea” to people who have never had the habit of drinking tea before. The name “Baisakkou” has the meanings of “BYSA” (selling tea) and “KUU” (sky = opening up, becoming open). The basic products are “tea leaves” and “white T-shirts,” and the idea is to make tea as familiar as white T-shirts, which can be worn by anyone, regardless of age or occasion.
Inspired by Kawamura’s work “CHAOS,” for the first phase, Masanori Tada, a seventh-generation Japanese tea instructor at Hirakata, Osaka-based Tada Seicha, has created a unique blend of “Samidori” from Uji Wazuka, “Yabukita” from Minami Yamashiro Dozenbou, and “Okumidori” from Fukuoka Yame ( (JPY 2090) was released. Two types of T-shirts (both 5,500 yen, tax included) will be available, both designed by Kawamura based on the package design.
