Akiba Zettai Ryoiki A.D. 2045

By Weekender Editor

Akiba Zettai Ryoiki A.D. 2045, which styles itself as the world’s first cyber maid café, opened its doors in March 2019 in Akihabara, Tokyo’s home ground for concept restaurants where waitresses dress as maids and treat customers like masters supping in their own home. The theme of the café is the not-too-distant future year of 2045 and the maids aren’t maids but, in fact, “cat-shaped pet robots from the future.” The cafe’s food menu is surprisingly ordinary considering the setting. It’s mostly omelets, desserts and fried foods on rice. You can also order cocktail sets that come with a live performance by one of the maids doing their best idol impressions on the small, brightly lit corner stage.

How Much: ¥600 per hour plus one drink

Address: 3-1-15 Sotokanda, Chiyoda-ku
