Free Spaces

Free spaces are not facilities specifically for remote work, but are spots where you can use freely within the rules set by the facility.

It's a good idea to prepare a tethering environment or mobile battery for places without WiFi or power outlets.

Tokyo Midtown Tower 5F Liaison Center Library

You need to make a reservation in advance.

From their website:

We offer four desk seats by the window that you can reserve in advance (for free). Each reservation allows for up to two 90-minute sessions. If there are no reservations, anyone is welcome to use these seats. Feel free to bring your own drinks, as long as they have a lid. However, we kindly ask you to refrain from bringing any other food or drink.

Reservation website:

The reservation website seems to change every month. Just replace in the URL the number of the month you want to make a reservation for. For example, the reservations for august 2023 are probably going to be at:

Surprisingly, you can use the seats without ordering a drink. The cafe menu is also generally cheap.

The space is stylish and the seats are spacious, so it's highly recommended. (It's such a good place that I wouldn't want to tell anyone if I lived in Tokyo.)

On weekdays, there are many people working remotely or having business meetings, and on weekends, there are many families with small children.

Next up, we're spotlighting libraries that offer computer access. Keep in mind, though, that many of these places do have time limits on usage.

But don't worry - if it's not too crowded, you can often extend your time by simply reapplying.

One important heads-up: due to the quiet nature of libraries, video conferencing isn't typically possible. So, plan your work accordingly!
