FabCafe Tokyo is located in Shibuya, Tokyo. Machines for digital fabrication, such as 3D printers and laser cutters are installed in a cafe space where people come together. Each day, creators visit these FabCafes to meet new people, gather together, compete over their talents, and share a forum for presentation. They engage in a wide variety of projects that make use of fabrication, materials, and technologies that are unique to the region.
