@Home Cafe information
Do you fancy walking on the wild side of Tokyo’s fetish for kawaii (cuteness)? You’ll be welcomed as go-shujinsama (master) the minute you enter this cafe. It’s a little titillating, perhaps, but this is no sex joint – just (more or less) innocent fun for Akihabara’s otaku . Dishes such as curried rice are even topped with smiley faces. Waitresses are dressed as French maids and adopt an especially fawning demeanour to customers. Customers can expect cute girls, giggles and plenty of kawaii love going around.
