Keep in Mind

  • Charge your computer: Make sure your computer is fully charged before you go, as not all cafes have outlets.
  • Avoid peak hours: Mornings are best for a more relaxed experience.
  • Limited time: Some cafes will ask you to limit your stay to an hour.
  • Small groups: It might be difficult to co-work for long periods of time.
  • Cashless: A few cafes in Tokyo prefer contactless pay, so check in advance.
