Internet Cafe Refugees Tokyo Japan
24 Hour Comic Book Internet Cafe
This isn't free but is cheaper than a hotel, and a good last minute option for a cheap place to sleep. Many are open 24 hours a day. They are cheap places for people to nap and spend the night if they have missed the train home. Many of Japan's working poor have also embraced Tokyo's Internet cafés as temporary homes, and have been called Internet Café Refugees.
Internet Cafe Facilities
Internet cafes in Japan have private rooms, reclining chairs, and sometimes beds. Cafes may also have shower and bathrooms facilities for overnight visitors. There are lots of computers with fast Internet, shelves full of comic books, DVD’s, TV’s, food for sale, free all you can drink soda, power outlets to charge your phone and printers. Some cafes will have an area for you to leave baggage, and will even allow you to come and go from the cafe if you pay for a one-week stay. I don’t recommend staying here long term, its quite hard to sleep there. Prices will vary depending on the services you require.
