Tailored Cafe

Azabujuban

Having a bad day, with working piling up and need to de-stress? Have an espresso with a shot of CBD oil, make yourself comfortable, and bang out that report at Tailored Cafe. Lightning-fast WiFi, simple decor, and comfortable couches make it a great place to get some work done.

Tagcafe

Shimokitazawa

Located in Shimokitazawa, Tokyo’s hipster neighborhood, Tagcafe is the place to go for telework. On most days you can see young people clicking away on MacBooks and scribbling away in actual notebooks, too. It’s totally acceptable to stay here for several hours without being asked to leave. The only thing that may be a slight turn off is the smoke—there will be lots of people smoking so steer clear if that bothers you.

  • Food menu: Cakes, pasta, etc.
  • Power outlets: Available
  • Average Price: ¥1,000 Coffee: ¥650
  • Getting there: It’s a minute walk from the Central Exit of Shimokitazawa Station.
