In this day and age, it is more common than ever for people to be working from home, and more people than ever want to, but working from home can become boring. Our reporters, who frequently alternate between working in the office and teleworking, always look for new places to do their work.
The Rembrandt Cabin Shinjuku Shin-Okubo is a place that might be just the place for teleworking. It is a capsule hotel in Shin-Okubo, which is also known as Tokyo’s Korea Town, that has a cafe where you can bring in your own food, have unlimited refills from a drink bar, and use as much electricity and wi-fi as you want. It seems like it would be perfect for remote work.
A one-minute walk from Shin-Okubuko Station, Rembrandt Cabin reopened under a new brand in June last year, and in February opened Soom Cafe on the eighth floor, which anyone can use, even those not staying at the hotel. capsule guests can make use of the cafe for free, but others can use the space for 500 yen per hour
The cafe space was large and clean, with a shared table in the middle of the room. The wall was lined with workspace.
There was a great view of the Shinjuku cityscape from the window. The Tokyu Kabukicho Tower, which will be Japan’s largest hotel and entertainment complex tower when it opens in 2023, could be seen outside. The Toho Theater building has a famous statue of a monster over its edge.
While you are in the cafe, you can get free access to the drink bar, which has unusual drinks like lemon water, corn tea, and Micho, a drink made from the juice of fruit that has been dried.
They also had a coffee machine, which every teleworker probably needs, and a food printer, which lets you draw pictures on macarons.
You can use the special coin in the snack gacha machines when you stay for an hour.
It is still a fun idea that you get nothing special.
When he had free access to electrical outlets and the internet, he set up shop. In Sato’s case, the place was not suited for concentration. The cafe isn’t a dedicated working space so the other customers were laughing and talking.
It’s still a great option if you don’t mind the background noise, even if it’s not the best teleworking space. The space allows you to bring your own food, which means you can stock up on some of the delicious Korean street food offered around the Shin-Okubo area before you get to work, which is a plus.
It could be a great place to relax with friends for a low price. If you choose to use it, Soom Cafe is a useful space in a convenient location, so keep it in your mind for the future.
