Welcome to Calo Bookshop & Cafe!

“Calo” is a small art bookshop launched in 2004 in Higobashi, Osaka, near The National Museum of Art, Osaka. We stock, not only, photo books and exhibition catalogs, but also a wide range of visually enjoyable books such as coffee table books and handmade “zines” by artists.

Our gallery mainly introduces local artists through some of their more accessible works.
Our online shop also offers international shipping.

We also have a small cafe corner in the shop where you can enjoy snacks and drinks.
Click here for the menu.
Please, enjoy a quiet cozy time in a calm atmosphere.
(Please note: We do not allow any un-purchased books in our cafe. Thank you for your understanding.)

We look forward to seeing you at our store soon!
