Finding a good place to settle down and take out your laptop to start working can be a daunting task in a different country. You’ll need to find somewhere that’s easy to access (near public transportation stops), has stable Wi-Fi, safe, and probably not too noisy as well.
If you’re in Tokyo and looking for a good place for work, Yasmine Awwad of www.peekingduck.co has some good suggestions:
La Kagu was our go-to spot when we stayed in Iidabashi. The big communal tables were never too busy and there was always a mix of people working and catching up with friends. It’s bright and airy, the food is great (you’ll want to try the brownie, trust me) and there are nice touches like the illustrated menu.

Lattest is a trendy coffee shop set slightly back form the main street in Omotesandō, a nice area for a stroll that’s filled with cute restaurants and boutiques. There’s plenty of seating and it’s a quiet place that’s good if you don’t want to be disturbed.

This cute coffee shop is on a quiet side street in Shibuya. It was kind of busy when we were there, but that was during Golden Week (when everyone in Japan gets the week off) and everywhere was busy. Fuglen has outside tables and a good selection of cakes and coffees.
