Tokyo’s Manuscript Writing Cafe only allows writers on a deadline, and won’t allow them to leave until finished

A lot of Japan’s themed cafes are centered around some fun activities to maintain you busy, equivalent to fiddling with micro pigs in an “Alice in Wonderland” setting, or admiring a recreated “Cowboy Bebop” world.

A restaurant positioned within the Koenji district of Tokyo that is been causing a buzz online has a unique way of keep you busy. It’s called the The Manuscript Writing Cafe, and is designed to operate as a refuge and base for writers who must get of their work up against a deadline.

But it surely’s not only a theme of the cafe–those are the actual rules!

Proprietor Takuya Kawai (@TakuyaKawai) shared a photograph of the cafe and its primary rule–that in an effort to use the cafe, it’s essential to be a author attempting to clear a deadline.

“The Manuscript Writing Cafe only allows in individuals who have a writing deadline to face! It’s in an effort to maintain a level of focus and tense atmosphere on the cafe! Thanks on your understanding.”

The cafe, which you’ll be able to see pictures of on the official home page, charges by time used (with a minimum of thirty minutes, after which by the hour with an order of coffee–although they don’t accept money) is supplied for writing with USB ports, Wi-Fi, and computer stands. The cafe also allows customers to herald food and drinks and even have it delivered, but in addition they have some fairly strict rules about writing equivalent to:

  1. Upon entering the shop, write down on the reception desk what number of words and by what time you’re going to write down your manuscript.

  2. The manager asks you each hour how your manuscript is coming along.

  3. You usually are not allowed to depart the shop until you’ve got finished writing your manuscript or writing project.

Apparently, customers can select different “courses” when it comes to how rigorously staff check in in your progress. For example, an “S” course sees them hurry you along pretty aggressively, and “M” course has them do it a more mildly.

The “manuscript writing” at the shop includes “translation work,” “proposal writing,” “layout work,” “image processing,” etc., indicating that the shop caters to a big selection of individuals.

With those rules nonetheless, in the shop, you’ll be able to probably feel the stress and impatience of those around you, whilst you yourself fight the pressure to get the job done…

Many on Twitter were amused (and understandably intimidated) by the shop’s adherence to a tense atmosphere and writing rules, leaving comments:

“I laughed at “maintaining tension in the shop.” In a way, it’s fascinating.”

“That’s way an excessive amount of pressure!”

“If it were me, I’d now not have the opportunity to depart the shop and would find yourself having to live there.”

“A café that you just cannot enter unless you meet certain conditions.”

Those searching for a little bit added motivating of their writing will probably want to look right into a visit to the Manuscript Writing Cafe and control the monthly pop-up dates (it runs on set dates on a bi-weekly basis).
