Had a great time with our lovely tour guide. We started off in a building that sells collectibles, which we wouldn't have known about if it wasn't for our guide. After that, we headed off to a maid café where we got ourselves some lovely dessert in the shape of bears and bunnies. The chocolate latté was amazing! Really friendly maids despite not being able to speak English. Took some pictures with the maids and then continued to a nearby gaming hall where we dressed up for some purikura shots. We got good information about the Akihabara area and Japanese culture in general. Interesting to speak to a Japanese person about life in Japan. Overall a really great tour which I would recommend!
Fun time in Akihabara!

It was my first time attending a Maid Cafe in Akihabara and I can say it was fun!
The maids were so cute and nice to us, they also made some cute art in our beverages and provided us the most adorable sweets ever!
We finished in an Arcade taking purikura making cosplay!
If you are looking for having fun in Tokyo this is your kind of tour.
Excellent service. Thank you!
Awesome time in Akihabara

My husband and I enjoyed our time in Akihabara! We chose to visit an animal cafe and it was so much fun!

This was a really nice tour. I loved the maid cafe, the maids where really nice and all the food and drinks looked like little cute animals which is just good for the sole I think. It made me genuinely happy to munch down a teddy-shaped sundae. We talked a lot to our guide about Japanese culture and it was interesting to get the perspective of a Japanese person on all the parts of Japanese culture that we in the west are unfamiliar with. Also having a guide is really convenient if you don't speak Japanese as the maids probably don't speak any English.
Akihabara Maid Cafe Tour - Fun for a Few Spare Hours

Always wondered what the big deal was about Maid-Cafes. DICE-san, our guide, answered all questions, even the tough ones about how to know if Yakuza is the boss or not and entertained the group with some Maid-history and Akihabara history, when it was known as Electric City. We had three different maids on our table durting the one hour event and I even got some happy pancakes for afternoon tea with Maid's magic love. :)

If you are a serious person, probably not for you but if you like to let loose, be a little Japanese-style crazy, this tour is for you.
