Kyoto netcafe + own laptop

I looking for a netcafe which allows to bring my own laptop. Is anyone know such a place?

Background: I will use dropbox to back up my photos and videos, but then internet connection in my airbnb room almost certainly will be too slow. However in the cafes I have seen really good connection.

You can also get wifi at places such as Mc Donalds or konbini like 7/11

Using a laptop standing outside 7-11 works really well doesn't it :)

on the other hand many McDonald's have counter seating with power plug in and free WiFi , and less crowded than Starbucks.

Of course you can always use your own laptop at any net cafe.

Some 7-11 have counters to eat bento at so can also be fine :)

Erhm... is it a recent information? I used to enjoy McDonalds' wifi back in ten years ago I think, but recently I found none. Maybe I was unlucky, not sure, and did not hunted really, I had pocket wifi-mobile thing.

Well of course the "free" wifi at 7-11 and McDonald's etc would be too slow, with other restrictions. Not useful for your purpose anyway.
