The shopkeeper and leader of Rokuhodo, Sui is the one who serves tea. He loves cats and always dotes over Kinako, the shop’s poster cat. He is bad at cooking. Although he looks cool, he can be goofy at times. Rokuhodo and its members are the most important to him in the world.

Tokitaka (CV: Yuichi Nakamura)
The chef of Rokuhodo and Sui’s close friend since middle school. His hobbies include pottery and watching period dramas. Tokitaka also runs a pottery classroom and is on good terms with the old people living nearby. He has a home garden in Rokuhodo’s backyard which he expands every years. He has hidden double teeth.

Gure (CV: Daisuke Ono)
The coffee maker of Rokuhodo whose latte art invites criticism every time. Born to Italian and Japanese parents, he’s a big brother type and the mood-maker of the group. He’s the president of the Duck Boat Club.

Tsubaki (CV: Daiki Yamashita)
A sweets maniac who loves both eating and making sweets, Tsubaki is responsible for dessert at Rokuhodo. He’s mostly shy and delicate, but he also has a sharp tongue which he most often uses on Gure. He’s the youngest Rokuhodo employee.

Yakyo Higashigo (CV: Tomoaki Maeno)
Sui’s twin brother and the vice president of the Hotel East Side Group. He’s a taciturn man who doesn’t talk about himself and doesn’t want to involve others in his private life.

Eisuke Kakuzaki (CV: Kosuke Toriumi)
A mysterious man and a coordinator of an exhibition space, he asks Rokuhodo to exhibit at a department store. He seems to have an ulterior motive.

Kinako (CV: Kohei Amasaki)
