When Ofusa ran away with Kanshichirou so that he wouldn't force the company upon the child (as its only heir), he hired Nizou to find him. However, Nizou was later defeated by Sakata Gintoki, and with some help from the Yorozuya and Ofusa, Kahei came to understand his wrongdoings.
- He is based on a successful merchant named Takadaya Kahei 高田屋嘉兵衛.
