“ Akihabara and Maid Cafe with Kids ”

We had a great afternoon with Naoko! In our email exchange before the visit, she gathered information about our interests and kids’ ages, and designed a tour that fit us perfectly. We went toy shopping in Akihabara and found just what the kids were looking for, and then followed it up with a visit to a family-friendly maid cafe. We had a lovely time with Naoko and would definitely recommend her to you!


Miranda! Thank you so much for your kind message. I feel so happy that you and your daughters were satisfied with the tour. Please give my best regards to your lovely princesses!
