Let’s find out about relaxing leisure space, Manga Cafe

There are many “Mangakissa (Manga café) “everywhere in major city in Japan.

It is the place like a library, where you can get access to a huge number of Manga, runs 24/7 and most of them charges fixed service price per hour.

The price per hour changes depends on which day and time you are going to, like weekdays or weekends and the time range of the day. Usually it’s about ¥300~¥400 per hour. A lot of places have set price menu to attract people something like, ¥1000 for 3 hours, after 10pm special offer 8 hours max for only ¥1500.

The overnight charges are really cheap. That’s why a lot of people who are called “Net Refugees (Manga café functions as an internet café as well, so the name came from internet.)” practically live in the city hopping Manga café each night instead of renting an apartment.
