We’re not living in internet cafes because we like being online 24/7

Tuesday, 16 July, 2013

While some, long term unemployed, Japanese men are refusing to leave their rooms at their parent’s house, for decades at a time in some instances, others who are likewise down on their luck, but perhaps can’t turn to their families anymore, are being forced to live in local net cafes.

Unlike internet cafes I’m familiar with, those in Japan are clearly a little different… where computers are housed in small, individual, cubicles with their own doors, and customers even have access to communal showers and toilets.
