Multi-National Maid Café Opens in Akihabara
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Akihabara is a haven for unique maid cafés, from establishments targeting Russophiles to maid workout partners. A new spot opened on Friday offering a multinational experience with servers from Brazil, China, Taiwan, Germany, Italy, the U.S., France, and Indonesia. Dubbed "Sugoi Kawaii," the cafe is "of, by, and for gaijin" (foreigners).
Sugoi Kawaii is called a café but its menu specializes in alcohol. The online menu doesn't currently list any food items.
There are at least 10 maids working at Sugoi Kawaii and recruitment appears to still be open. Wages start at 1,000 yen an hour (US$9) with two to four days of work a week and shifts starting at four hours per day.
