Internet Cafés in Singapore might not have very good reputations. Most of the time, they are just boring rented units equipped with computers, a working Wi-Fi connection, and perhaps some snacks and drinks to keep you satiated.
The Japanese, however, take their Internet Cafés very seriously. They are often associated with Manga Kissa (or Manga Cafés). @Bagus Gran Cyber Café in Shinjuku, Tokyo, is one such place, and a single visit there has completely changed our opinions of Internet Cafés.
The place is hygienic, comfortable, and they even provide private cubicles for napping! Here are a couple of reasons Why You Should Visit @Bagus Gran Cyber Café In Shinjuku Tokyo At Least Once In Your Life.
#1 THEY HAVE PRIVATE CUBICLES
Yes, you read that right. Unlike other regular Internet Cafés you probably know of, @Bagus Gran Cyber Café actually offers private, enclosed cubicles so you do not need to mix around with other strangers.
These cubicles even come with mattresses, pillows, plugs, a lamp, and of course, a computer. It is little wonder that you will find locals sleeping in @Bagus overnight. The place is actually a good last minute accommodation option if you ever find yourself needing a place to stay without prior bookings.
There are even cubicles for women only, so it feels safer and more comfortable.
#2 THERE ARE FREE SNACKS
Corn soup, hot chocolate and or ice-cold milk—all for free? Sign us up!
@Bagus Gran Cyber Café offers free mini snacks and drinks via vending machines. If you are willing to pay a little more, you can even get hot fries, nuggets, wedges and pastries.
#3 THEY HAVE CLEAN TOILETS AND SHOWERS
The Japanese are very particular when it comes to hygiene, and @Bagus does not fall short in this aspect. The toilets are spick and span, and they offer shower rooms so you can wash up after spending a night at the café.
#4 CHOOSE FROM A VARIETY OF MAGAZINES AND MANGA
@Bagus is a manga café after all, and the café has shelves after shelves completely filled with manga books of all kinds. If manga is not your thing, you can otherwise pick up a generic magazine or two from their extensive collection.
#5 YOU CAN EVEN HAVE A GAME OF DARTS
Besides surfing the Internet or burying your head in manga, you can also opt for a game of darts in their in-house darts room.
#6 THEY OFFER AFFORDABLE RATES
Prices for staying six hours overnight in a private cubicle at @Bagus Gran Cyber Café starts from ¥980, and subsequently goes up by ¥100-¥200 for every 30 minutes exceeded.
Luggage storage is free too!
