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.

Harajuku in Tokyo has always been known as the place where bold fashion comes to life, vibrant colours dot the streets, and Lolita dressing reigns supreme. It is where you find all things crazy and out-of-the-world.
Among its multitude of themed cafes sits Kawaii Monster Café, a kaleidoscopic spot that has been attracting visitors ever since it opened its doors in late 2015. The interiors reflect the essence of Harajuku dreams—gigantic lips, swirling colours, and kiddie carousels. Even their food is colourful!
