A Gateway to Jazz Kissa

The roots of Jazz Kissa culture, unique to Japan, can be traced back about 90 years. It’s the history of jazz first spreading from the United States to the island nation of Japan in the far east, and is like a mirror that reflects the relationship between Japanese people and jazz.

This year marks the 53rd anniversary of the Jazz Kissa “EAGLE” located in Yotsuya, Tokyo. It’s one of the few remaining ‘critically endangered’ orthodox Jazz Kissa, but still to this date keeps itself up to date with current trends and still holds a large influence even to this day.
