You’ve probably heard of maid cafes, and this place is along the same lines, if you’ll excuse the pun. Instead of maids, though, your waitress will be a cute train conductor! They also have tables made from train benches, food served in train-shaped dishes and model trains zipping about.
Located in Akihabara, a district in Tokyo once famed for its electronics, and now better known as a place that caters to anime and manga fans, Little TGV is a cross between a maid café and a kind of railway themed izakaya (Japanese-style pub).
The restaurant also offers a number of train-themed special services, including one in which a member of staff will write any station name that a customer who orders omuraisu (omelet with rice) requests, using tomato ketchup.
At first blush, you might be thinking that this is probably a café popular only with male customers however, the café does in fact, also draw a fair share of female clientele.
