Freeters use of Internet cafes in Japan

Japanese customer #japanesecustomer

Japanese Customers
enjoy reading manga (cartoon books) and using internet cafes. 

If you miss the last train home from the city it is easy and convenient to visit a 24-hour internet cafe, and read manga, drink coffee, take a nap, a shower and catch the first train home in the morning. 

They have become so convenient and useful for a wide range of customers. A recent trend has seen "freeters" people who work part-time jobs and are often paid low hourly wages, for example, 800 yen per hour, who often cannot afford a regular apartment due to the high setup costs (one month's rent, key money, and security deposit, moving costs, etc). 

"Freeters" are seen to be high-end users of these 24-hour cafes and do so by living out of a bag. 

Using the facilities after work and then returning to work the next day. 

With limited income, these cafes have become a much sought-after commodity to help stretch their limited income. 

It is a creative but necessary way to make ends meet.
