Tokyo Cabinet and Kyoto Cabinet are two libraries of routines for managing key-value databases. Tokyo Cabinet was sponsored by the Japanese social networking site, Mixi, and was a multithreaded embedded database manager, comparable in functionality to SQLite[1][dubious ] (but without an actual SQL implementation) and was announced by its authors as "a modern implementation of DBM".[2] Kyoto Cabinet is the designated successor of Tokyo Cabinet.[2]

Tokyo Cabinet features on-disk B+ trees and hash tables for key-value storage, with "some" support for transactions.[1]
