Japanese manga cafe or mangakissa is a place in Japan where people come to read Manga. Manga is the nineteenth-century comics created in Japan in the Japanese language. These comics have several ancient characters. People come to these café to read these comics. A Japanese manga cafe is a place where people pay to stay. They can sit and read according to their choice of time as they pay for the time they spend there. As people stay in these places for a long time, these cafés have many other offerings as well like drinks and snacks.

This started when a coffee shop owner Nagoya started to offer Manga to his customers when they ordered for coffee for free. He thought this would be a positive outcome for his business, but as the time passed customers started to spend hours to read the comics just with one cup of coffee. Other people took a lesson from this and came up with the idea of a place where people could read Manga and snacks and drinks would be the second selling. Hence, Japanese Manga café came into existence. In very less time they gained popularity in the country and there was a number of cafés in many places of the country.

With the time passed these cafés grew on an even wider scale. Now Manga cafes can also be seen in foreign countries like the United Kingdom and United States. These cafés now offer individual cabins for customers with foods and drinks to order and some also have the facility to a bath. Nowadays they also offer the internet services. Earlier these cafés used to be just about reading but now with the access to the internet, they can also be called internet cafés and vice versa. With the changing times, this was a very intelligent and successful strategy which resulted in being the main factor in attracting young people. They offer various types of seats like open seats, recycling seats, flat seats, VIP seats or pair seats.

The modern-day Japanese Manga cafe is much more open to non-Japanese people than they were before. In earlier times the Manga magazines were sold just in Japanese language but now they have also started to print them in English for non-Japanese readers. Manga cafes are very silent places to go, they are a treat for people who like to do their work and reading in silence. If you want to listen to something loud, you have to take up for soundproof headphones, it will be considered as a respect to other people.

So, all in all, Japanese Manga cafes are a good place to spend time and read and such business must be encouraged in every corner of the world. They have gained popularity in older times; the new business tactics will accelerate their charm even more.
