Someone once told me that love is a battlefield. You have a better shot at finding someone special if you have the opportunity to meet more people. But where can you find such a place? Aiseki Cafe is the perfect place where you can experience speed dating at a cozy establishment in Tokyo!
There is a new kind of cafe with an interesting concept in Japan. Aiseki Cafe is located in Ginza, Tokyo which advertises itself as a place where you can casually meet other people. In Japanese, Aiseki means “sharing a table,” particularly with someone you don’t know. The concept is quite similar to blind dating. It was established with the goal of giving people a place to meet potential soulmates. This is basically a place where you can experience speed dating in Tokyo.
The rules are simple. First, patrons are asked to fill out a form with some key information about them. Next, male and female patrons are randomly paired and are seated comfortably at a table for two. Visitors are encouraged to get to know their tablemates just like in regular speed dating set-ups. Coffee and cakes are also provided to make the conversation more pleasant and enjoyable.
Should the conversation turn awkward, the cafe thoughtfully provides a tablet loaded with music and other contents for patrons to use. If you find your tablemate unappealing, fret not! Note that the men are rotated every thirty minutes while the women stay seated. The goal is crystal clear. Once you feel a spark between you and your tablemate, you can exchange phone numbers and if there’s a match, folks can leave at any time.
Unlike other regular speed dating parties, Aiseki Cafe is open all day with no reservations required. You can come in at any time you want to find the potential love of your life!
The cafe is designed to give you a simple and clean atmosphere. At Aiseki Cafe, each patron will get unlimited coffee and cakes. Women have the advantage of paying only 500 yen and enjoying unlimited coffee and cakes with no time limit! Men, on the other hand, have to pay a lot more. Men can enjoy an hour of unlimited coffee and cakes for 2,500 yen, and if they wish to extend, each additional hour will cost them another 1,000 yen. But who cares? You cannot put a price on true love!
“Where coffee is found, love will find a way,” is a saying that truly captures the cafe’s nature. So if you’re young, single, or simply want to widen your social horizon, just quickly fill out a form and get seated at a table of unknown possibilities. Who knows? You might just meet that special someone!
