At Hibari-kei, your maid just might be a master - actually they ALL are, since this unique floating Maid Cafe is the first in Japan to feature cross-dressing male maid servers.
Tokyo's Akihabara district is famed for its Maid Cafes - small, often themed restaurants staffed by young women wearing maid costumes. From humble beginnings, the Maid Cafe phenomenon has branched out to include Eyeglasses Cafes, Ear-cleaning Cafes, even Scientist Lab Coat Cafes... all featuring nubile servers of the feminine persuasion.
Gender equality is intruding into this particular perfumed world, however. First came Butler Cafes; basically the reverse of the usual Maid Cafe in which elegant male butlers served mainly female customers with upper class English civility. Now the other high-heeled shoe has dropped: get ready for Hibari-kei, "the one and only cross-dressing maid cafe in Akiba."
Hibari-kei is staffed by cross-dressing male waiters who, for the most part, work at assorted IT industry jobs in the Akihabara area. By day they look and act like average Japanese salarymen - by night, look out! That fashionably dressed, soft-spoken techie who replaced your computer's hard drive this morning just could be Chazuke (left) or Ichigoneko (Strawberry Cat), two of Hibari-kei's many marvelous male maids.
