After a two-year hiatus, it resumed operations on the 22nd at its new store in Takadanobaba, the new starting point.
Takashi Saito, the store manager of Tomoshibi, said, “I felt a heavy responsibility to end the history of ‘Tomoshibi’ built by many seniors. It was a very heavy decision, but I was filled with anxiety because I couldn’t see the future.” looked back.
A member of Baby Boo, who visited the store to reopen the new store, said, “When the store was decided to close, it was a time when a state of emergency was being declared, and with the sad feeling that our ‘hometown’ would be gone, the staff I was wondering if the people and customers who were looking forward to the singing voice cafe would be okay.” It’s overflowing. Please let us walk together again in a place that is indispensable for us, and let us create a new page of the singing voice cafe together.” (Yu) commented.

We hope that everyone who loves singing will continue to be a place where they belong.” He said, “We have been friends for about 10 years in the long history of Tomoshibi, but I am proud that we were able to go through this difficult time together. I would be happy if we could continue to walk together. (Shinobu), “Tomoshibi has really given me a lot of connections and opportunities. Please let me learn a lot from now on. And I will do my best to repay everyone.” (Cherry) He was pleased with the resumption of business and said that he would continue to pass on the culture of singing voice cafes as Baby Boo.

I really felt it.I think that singing voice cafes where you can see each other’s faces and sing together are a place where you can enjoy beyond generations.In the after-corona era, the value of such a place called “Tomoshibi” is re-evaluated. I think it will be done,” said Saito, the store manager, with great expectations for the future.
