Jugetsudo Kabukiza is a cafe located on the 5th floor of Ginza Kabukiza and faces their rooftop garden.

The tearoom, serving green teas and Japanese-style sweets, takes up a space of 127 m² in that area and is entirely covered with bamboo as many as 3,000.

The bamboo bars are (arranged) in varied pitches and quietly partition the room. The ceiling is folded so that the eave thrust to the garden can be a sequence from inside, connecting the room and the outdoor.

The unitized bamboos are either in the diameter of 20 mm or 40 mm. They are skewered in varied densities using bolts and nuts.

The multiple layers of these differently-pitched bamboos create a grove to connect the Kabukiza theater and the garden.
