“Akihabara Tourism Ambassador Kamen Joshi AKIBA REPORT” is Akihabara Tourism Ambassador, Kamenjoshi members report Akihabara’s attractive shops, events and more!
We visited “Nagomi style.cafe” today!
What is Nagomi style cafe?
Nagomi style café is Akihabara’s Internet/comic café that has a concept of healing, relaxing, and comforting.
Inside of the café is like the ryokan in Kyoto and you can forget the hustle and bustle of the city for a while.
As soon as you get into the cafe, there is Karesansui(枯山水).
*Karesansui(枯山水) : The dry landscape gardens constructed only with rock and sand.
Although no actual water is present, the sand and stones are able to evoke vast expanses of ocean and beautiful flowing streams.
You can feel Japanese style garden while staying indoor.
How many comics are there ？
There are approximately 25,000 comics and 150 magazines.
There are a lot of popular manga, so I would like you to check them out.
We couldn’t stop reading them!
We heard that you provide excellent range of services
As we have a concept of healing, relaxing, and comforting, we provide various services that customers feel comfortable.
I love the atmosphere of Tatami!
There are a lot of amenity goods for women.
We offer Shampoo, Conditioner, Makeup-off products, Toner, Moisturizer ets without additional charges.
Is there a food menu?
For food, we have about 100 kind.
We provide not only Japanese, but also wide range of food.
There is famous Ochazuke(Rice soup), right?
Yes, we started “free food” recently, Ochazuke becomes all-you-can-eat in certain time period.
That is a good deal!
Do you have foreign visitors as well?
We have more foreign customers lately.
The café is more famous overseas than in Japan because we are interviewed from foreign media.
How do you communicate with them?
We don’t have foreign staff, but there is “POCKETALK(Translation machine for 50 languages)” in front desk.
We use it to communicate if there is a difficulty.
Even people who don’t speak Japanese can use it.
Also, we have a cloakroom service for foreign customers who have a lot of luggage, so I hope you will use it.
