Avoid Maid Cafes

This is one that goes against what so many guides will show you and they show up on so many “things to do in Tokyo” lists it’s crazy.

I say avoid them.

They’re not as amazing as some would make them out to be and they tend to be quite pricey — mostly because they charge for every… single… thing.

In exchange for the price, you get served by a young woman dressed in a maid outfit speaking a language you probably can’t understand.

Or speaking very broken English.

Or they’re a foreign young woman working in Tokyo speaking English to you while wearing a maid outfit.

Obviously, this is a niche thing and if it’s your niche thing… well then, have at it. I hope you have a great time.
