Hidden Gem: FAB Cafe Shibuya

by Mieke

FAB cafe

FAB might be a little farther away from Shibuya station than other cafes, but it’s definitely worth the walk. Treat yourself to their signature ‘marshmallow latte’, the cutest drink I’ve ever come across.

Mobile working place
If you want to get creative this is the perfect place. With their 3D-printer they can print your design of choice on any item of choice, of just print a totally new design in thin air! I’ve seen people walk away with slick designs on skateboards and laptops, or 3D renditions of any design they conjured up. Perfect to pimp up your business cards! It can get crowded, but the facilities are good and the tables and chairs comfortable. And of course, a fast Wi-Fi connection is available for those who can still concentrate on work amidst all the 3D excitement. 

Mini-me
A design on a laptop? Your design imprinted in your favorite pen? All cool, but if you really want something unique you can have yourself (!) printed as a tiny figurine. How awesome is that! You need some 4 to 5 days, since it's quite an intricate process. After making an appointment (making a tiny self is apparently popular), you are laser-measured. All very sci-fi. Then, they start the printing and you can pick up your own mini-me in 3-4 days!

Toured with Takako on April 19th - our first day in Tokyo. She was very accommodating trying to help us find wifi pocket card near where we stayed and adjusted to our shifting schedule. Showed us everywhere we had wanted to see, it was a full day from 9 - 5 pm. Group was tired at the end but she still had energy to keep going. Highly recommend and wouldn't regret. THANKYOU Takako!

Mack picked us up from our Airbnb and took us around Tokyo. He came up with a plan to optimize the day we had and completed everything. But most importantly he showed us how to use the subway system to get around in Tokyo. He also planned our trip to Mt Hakone and sent it in writing giving us clear instructions. I would ask Mack for help anytime.
