When you visit Akihabara for shopping or strolling, where would you go to take a break? In a restaurant, or a cafe?

There are many cafes in Akihabara, but most of them do not offer free Wi-Fi, especially in the franchise type coffee shops. Nowadays, you would want to browse the Internet even when you are taking a break.

This article is about Vault Coffee, where you can enjoy free Wi-Fi and take a leisurely break.

Vault Coffee: A Cafe on the Main Street of Akihabara

From the JR Akihabara Station, it takes about seven minutes on foot to reach Vault Coffee. The first floor of the building is Liberty, a shop for the otaku people.

This building is located at Chuo Dori [Central street], a large thoroughfare, so it should be easy to find.

The entrance is in the back, through a narrow alley on the side of the building.

There is a "VAULT COFFEE" sign in the alley.

The cafe entrance is on the third floor.

A Unique Cafe

店内は広々としていて良いです

The light coming in from the window creates a serene atmosphere in the spacious cafe. With bossa nova music filling the air, it's different from a franchise type coffee shop or a maid cafe, both of which are abundant in Akihabara.

The coffee is a "boiled" type, brewed by pouring hot water directly on ground beans.

Mr. Sakamoto, the barista who used to work for a specialized trading firm dealing coffee beans, said that this is the way to fully appreciate the freshness of the beans.

The recommended drink, "Cup of Excellence," (500 yen) is brewed from beans cited for their top quality at an international fair. I chose "Montecristo," a Guatemalan bean, which has a slightly sweet flavor with a hint of nuts.

Free Wi-Fi and Outlets

You can use high speed Wi-Fi for free at the Vault Coffee. Many customers bring their PCs, and no one is complaining about the speed.

Also, there are outlet boxes in some seats, so you can charge your devices. There may be some areas in Akihabara that comes with a free Wi-Fi, but outlet boxes are scarce, so this is very convenient for travellers.

There are some comfortable seats in the back, so this is an ideal place to relax after shopping in Akihabara.

You can also read Japanese magazines, manga, and fanzines about coffee.

Vault Coffee offers delicious coffee, along with free Wi-Fi which is hard to find in this area. Many people visit Akihabara when they come to Tokyo, so please stop by Vault Coffee when you feel like taking a break.
