For all the fans of the classical Victorian Look with dresses with their most apparent distinction, the upfront white apron which was the classic uniform of an 18-century maid is a normal sight down at the Cure Maid Cafe in Akihabara which derives from the cute appeal down to a more elegant classical look. The cafe itself is a smaller establishment completely transformed with a regal outlook, the menus are composed of what you would expect a suave of delicacy with some prominent deserts. The same hospitality can be excepted at the wonder Parlour of the café white rose.

A great place to see Maids and save some money in the process
Perhaps you are interested into visiting a maid cafe but lack the funds to fully experience the ordeal, well perhaps visiting The Granavania cafe which is in close proximity to Akihabara Station you may find your ideal refuge. The features of this cafe are not like the previously mentioned ones due to the fact that this establishment has a look more suited to a classical tavern instead of the fantasy and Victorian ones mentioned earlier. With affordable dishes and interesting games you can play with the maids you can’t go wrong with The Granavania cafe.

Yes, this also exists. Known in Japan as Otoko no ko which translated and read in Japapane means ‘’boys as girls’’. The name of the place is Newtype and for now it’s the only cafe in Tokyo which has male maids which crossdress as female. It is an interesting thing to see and they maids act to their fullest commitment in order to bring you the full experience of the place. If you are into this sort of the thing that the Newtype is the right place for you.
One of my favorite places was #NewTypeCafe in #Akihabara, A maid cafe where the maids are super pretty guys! I had one of the most fun nights of my life there! I met super awesome people like @sakashio128 and this super cool dude who’s name I forget, but he’s pictured singing. The food is delicious, we sang karaoke and geeked out over anime and video games. We got wasted. The food is tasty! I can’t wait to go back! #japan #tokyo #newtype #funtimes #genderfuck
