Akihabara Maid Tour
- Half Day
Today's tour can begin between 12:00 and 18:00. Delve into Japan's cosplay (costume play) culture with this unique, half-day Akihabara maid tour. Travel to the capital's Akihabara district, an area known for its countless electronics shops and various specialty stores that feature anime, manga, and videogames. Meet with a guide dressed in a French maid costume for an insightful walk through this area.

Learn about Japan's pop culture obsession while walking through the vibrant streets of Akihabara. See locals dressed in unusual outfits representing their favourite anime characters and other 'maids' handing out leaflets to passersby. The guide will point out popular shops such as a vintage video game centre and an action figure speciality shop. She will also explain how Japan's cartoon and animation industry evolved into mainstream culture.

Following the walking tour, follow the guide to one of Akihabara's fascinating maid cafes. Sip a drink while being fawned over and entertained by the ever-smiling maids in this surreal setting. Sing songs, play games or simply sit back and enjoy people watching.

After the drinks are finished, return to the 'real world' and part ways with the guide at Akihabara Station.
