“Skyo” is a complex facility directly connected to Namba Station on the Nankai Main Line. On the 5th floor, there is “Cha-ryo Tsubo-shi Seicha Honpo Namba store”. The main store is the 170-year-old “Tsuboichi Seicha Honpo” in Sakai, Osaka. A tea appraiser goes directly to the tea-producing area and processes the tea leaves selected by his own connoisseurs in-house to continue making delicious tea. At the cafe created by such a tea shop, you can enjoy Japanese tea sweets that go well with tea.

The main store “Cha-ryo Tsubo-shi Seicha Honpo” is located in Sakai City, Osaka, which is famous as a land related to Sen no Rikyu called Chasei. It is a long-established Japanese tea wholesaler founded in the Edo period, and it seems that there used to be hundreds of shops in the same industry in the neighborhood, but this is the only one that still exists. Tea leaves do not specify the place of origin, but keep the taste of the store by adjusting the composition every year to achieve the desired taste.
The interior is based on the image of “Yamai in the city,” which is the term for tea ceremony.
It is a calm space like a tea room in a remote mountain while being in the city. The grid blocks your line of sight so you can relax and relax.
