RESOBOX is bringing the popular Japanese culture of maid cafés straight to New York for a special one-week pop-up to celebrate the cute culture developed in Tokyo’s Akihabara neighborhood. Maid cafés are a subcategory of cosplay (costume play) restaurants found in Japan and consist of waitresses dressed in maid costumes who serve customers as if they were their own personal maids.

The pop-up is produced by Uno Furstin, who was considered one of the top maids in the Akihabara maid cafe @home.

Stop by for a sneak peek into Japan’s unique culture. “Irasshaimase, Goshujinsama!” or “Welcome, master!” is the first thing you’ll hear as you enter the pop-up maid café.

For a list of participating maids and for more information, please visit RESOBOX’s website or RSVP at the event’s Facebook page.
