I went to Shinjuku to experience a book café that had been on the list of things I wanted to do for a long time.
This time I visited book café "by BOOK AND BED TOKYO" where you can stay in Kabukicho.
It was much more small than I had imagined, but the atmosphere and the choice of books were good.
The price is reasonable, so I think that those who want to read a book in a stylish and calm atmosphere can enjoy it.

by BOOK AND BED TOKYO I went to Shinjuku store.
The plaza in front of the lion statue in Kabukicho was once famous as a hangout for the homeless.

When you go up the elevator, there is a reception.

An Instagram-worthy photo spot with manga pages hanging from the ceiling.

Impressions of by BOOK AND BED TOKYO
It seemed to be a pretty popular spot, so I went for a time that seems to be vacant around noon on weekdays.
Thanks to that, there was only about a couple besides myself, and I was able to enjoy reading comfortably.
Around 4:00 p.m., a lot of people are gathering at the reception desk, and are they people who are for the purpose of staying?
It wasn't as broad as I had imagined, and I couldn't figure out the type of book.
However, I don't really care when I think about encounters with books that I don't usually read and the number of books I can read in a day.
If you have a book you are looking for, you should bring it in in advance or go to a manga café.
