The cafe-styled space "The Morning Extra Activities," which the design company located in Kanazawa-shi, Ishikawa Prefecture started last summer, is gaining popularity.
This space has attracted those who want to utilize a morning hour effectively for self-education before working.
The participants are most the office workers in their 30-40's, and students, professors, even chef, etc. are among them.
A theme is decided based on the opinions from the participants. Sometimes a participant becomes a lecturer on the theme related to his experience in many cases. The theme on "sign language" was especially popular because of the Deaf participant.
The company staff said, "It is a time when communication can be simply done on the Internet now. So we would like to offer a new place where people meet one another learning something from others."
The cafe space is held Fridays at 7:00-8:00 in the morning.
Fees are 500 yen; a capacity is about 20 persons.
It is requested to check a theme with Facebook before applying.
