The concept of the Paris boutique

Tradition & renewal

We chose to entrust the design of our store to architect Kengo Kuma, who carries out many large projects around the world, because his ideas and the spirit of his work fit perfectly with our conception of the Jugetsudo brand. , that of a “concord of tradition and renewal”.
An original and unique design, but which is also in harmony with the atmosphere of the neighborhood. Alliance of traditional and natural materials, such as bamboo, and modern materials.
On the ground floor is the sales and tasting area. You will discover a simple decor, furnished with a large Japanese cypress counter and adorned with countless bamboo stalks suspended from the ceiling. On this counter is a large cast iron kettle. Customers will taste our range of authentic green teas, served in refined tableware, as well as our small tea cakes. We also offer tea services and all green tea accessories.
In the basement is a somewhat mysterious space, a sort of underground cave in Paris, dedicated to the Chazen gallery and the tea ceremony. We organize various events inspired by the four seasons, for example exhibitions of traditional arts, tea ceremony sessions given by masters, concerts, etc.
