When I decided to go to Japan, one of the things that I wanted to do was go to a Maid Cafe. For those not in the know, maid cafes are pretty much like regular cafes except the waitresses are dressed up as, you guessed it, maids. It makes a certain amount of sense that the place famous for the Maid Cafes also happens to be the techie/nerd area of Tokyo, Akihabara.
There are literally dozens, if not more, maid cafes to choose from. There were the standard maid cafes, a working lady cafe, a cat maid cafe…the possibilities were endless. It seemed like there was a cafe for every type of fetish. My mom and I checked out a couple, but the majority of them required membership fees to gain entrance. The one we finally decided upon was a rabbit maid cafe called the Hand Maid Cafe – Usagi no Mori (Rabbit’s Forest).
