2018年1月4日 Café 52 代表CJキム What a crazy year 2017 was. Cafe 52 is still in its infant phase with so much room to grow but all thanks to your amazing support, it was able to hatch out into this world and stand on its two feet for the very first time. Thank you!

Cafe 52 aims to positively contribute to the Tokyo Jazz community by providing; 1. an affordable yet high-level jam session stage that’s available nightly, all-year round, 2. frequent and ample job opportunities to a large pool of competent and sincere local jazz musicians regardless of the instrument, sex, age, race or creed.
Cafe 52 also aims to promote raised cultural awareness and vitality to the general community by providing; 1. fun and natural English conversation events, 2. an exhibition wall for local and international visual artists to show and sell their works. It’s been a long and arduous journey but thanks to all your kind support, Cafe 52 has finally completed its preparation phase and will commence operation starting September 24th, 2017! The ‘Cafe 52’ project being a cultural and artistic endeavor of love and appreciation, it will strive in all diligence to make the events and menu items also reflect those ideals by making them easily accessible and affordable to you, the beloved jazz musicians, fans, artists, seekers and dreamers. I am eagerly looking forward to seeing you all.
Special thanks go out to: Mr. Mogushi & Inoue at ‘Jazz Spot Intro’ and Mr. Mochizuki at ‘Manhattan’ as well as all of their wonderful featured musicians/session hosts. Additionally, very special thanks go out to Akiyuki Hatakeyama, Masaya Taniguchi, Kota Kaihori, Kota Sawaguchi, Bob Yeh and crew, and lastly to my family and my dear partner, Aki Fukushika. The cafe would have been absolutely impossible without any and all of your incredible support. Thank you,
September 7th, 2017 CJ Kim P.S. Due to popular demand, Cafe 52 will be smoke-free. There will be a designated smoking area just outside the building during business hours.
