    thanks for this topic I knew such things existed in Japan but didn't know much about them.

    Is this how it works -
    Take a look at this desperate guy (who is a western but speak bad English) trying to pick a maid - YouTube - Japan Maid Cafe

    Poor girl, I feel so bad for her.

    I heard you can reserve time with a maid of your choosing and learn Japanese and get better speaking with girls. Is that true?

    Seiwei, can you tell me how much it generally costs to be at a maid cafe? I also heard that girls are allowed, it is not guy-exclusive right?

    First off, I'm surprised the maid allowed him to take a video Oo. Usually no photography or video allowed in maid cafes! Because they want you to pay 300-600 yen for a picture.
    Secondly what a douche Oo. But yeah, maids will just keep doing their job and stay in that role-play for the most part. I haven't heard about the whole reserving a maid's time for Japanese kaiwa lessons. What I heard was the opposite: some maid cafes in Akihabara are picky towards foreigners because they don't understand Japanese and hence wouldn't be able to appreciate the full role-play experience. I haven't encountered that at all in Nihonbashi (the Akihabara of Osaka) though; maids were always excited to see foreigners step into the store because it was pretty rare.
    Also, anyone can go to a maid cafe! Girls, guys, schoolkids, salarymen, anyone. The maids devotedly call guys "Goshuujinsama" while calling girls "Ojousama"
    And the ones I went to in Nihonbashi are different than Akihabara of course. I think the fee to sit down at a table is 400 yen in popular Akihabara cafes, while in Nihonbashi cafes they don't charge you unless there is a huge event going on. The food price a dollar or two more expensive than regular cafes, but it's worth it!

    I don't know, I think it would be great to have a made cafe out here, and people would be attracted by it, not just for the girls but also for their costumes, I was thinking about opening one where I live.
