Akihabara is a mecca for videogames enthusiasts: from the new gigantic electronics stores to the cramped and dusty retro gaming stores, passing through the noisiest game centers in the world, Electric Town (another name for Akihabara), will not disappoint even the craziest gamer.
The experience includes a visit to a Maid café. Totally and uniquely Japanese, particularly from the Akihabara district where they originated in the early 2000s, these cafes are now an attraction in themselves and a feature of the Electric City.
These are cosplay-themed restaurants where guests are served by cute waitresses dressed as French maids. The girls also engage in conversations and games with customers and treat them with attention and deference due to the host. Maid cafés are popular with both men and women.
Walk the neighborhood visiting the old heart of Electric Town and the new area cramped with stores dedicated to electronics, manga, anime, and videogames. Then have a drink in a Maid café.
