Yet another cool place to check out in Japan. This time it’s a Cafe, but not just any ordinary Cafe. Welcome to 8bit Cafe. From the blogpost on Kirainet.com, it is a quaint little venue, and an extreme haven for geeks alike.

If you can read Japanese, then I suggest you check the official page on http://8bitcafe.net/index.html.
