Japanese manga have come a long way!
The modern manga took off during the US occupation after 1945 and since then, the industry in Japan and abroad has reached new heights.
Fast forward to 2013.
Today, there’s more to manga than just manga. There’s a whole culture surrounding Japan’s comics and one part of that is the manga cafe called “manga kissa” in Japanese.
Don’t let the word “cafe” fool you — the services at manga kissa go beyond reading manga with a cup of coffee.
Not only is it a place to read a manga in a quiet place off the busy streets of Tokyo, it’s also a place where you can get some privacy with a date watching 3D movies or even spend the night at an affordable rate.
