maid1Japan is known for its efficient, futuristic technology, as well as it's traditional culture. Japan's biggest cultural import is their animation (anime), manga (comics), video games and of course, their cuisine. When you walk around the Akihabara, an epicenter of anime and manga, it's no surprise you will also find girls in maid costumes handing out flyers.

The maids serve you drink or food and will draw a cute picture for you. The maids will also teach you how to give your food some delicious magic. ^^ Also you can sometimes play a friendly game of rock-paper-scissors.
