    1. Rakuten Cafe

    If you are looking for a place where you can walk in with your computer and surf online while sipping some amazing coffee, this is probably the best place to go in Shibuya. The reasons why you should visit this cafe are plenty, some of them being the brand image of the online giant ‘Rakuten’ and the super fast internet (approx 1 Gbps) which is available for absolutely no extra cost! This means you can browse much faster compared to many other public WiFi spots, which are usually much lower in terms of speed.

    The other cool thing about this cafe is the fact that it is just a short walk from the famous Shibuya Hachiko metro exit. Also, the presence of power outlets, together with lots of free e-books to download, makes it the best place for anyone to visit.

    Further to this, the food is just amazing with lots to choose from the menu including beer, tea, and snacks made with some quality ingredients. It also closes at 11pm, which is great for people who want to relax after work.
