It doesn't exactly look appealing from the outside, and entering this tiny corner shop may be a tad shocking at first as well, seeing that the interior is completely covered with antique furniture, European-style paintings and small sculptures, a full 180° from the shitamachi ambience of the surrounding area. Kado specialises in fresh juice and home-baked bread, with the former available in ‘seasonal’ flavours written on a board that looks like it’s remained unchanged for years. The juice is delightfully old-school, and is served in a glass big enough to make you forget about eventual flavour deficiencies. Strawberry and banana (¥600 each) are both safe choices, while their popular kassei juice is a combo of aloe, apple, lemon, honey, celery, parsley and asparagus – healthy and delicious. As for the bread, try the graham walnut variety, also available with sandwich toppings (sandwich and half juice set ¥750).
