Putting a sci-fi spin on Tokyo’s maid café trend, the Shibuya branch of Maidreamin comes equipped with a range of high-tech gizmos, courtesy of digital production company TeamLab. While the staff wear the same frilly outfits you'll see at other joints around town, the shop itself looks more like a real-life videogame, with trampolines, interactive displays and coloured cubes hanging from the ceiling that change colour and emit sounds when the maids hit them. There's a basic charge of ¥500 per hour, and you'll have to place at least one drink or food order on top of that – go for an oh-so-cute bunny parfait or 'omurice' rice omelette adorned with a ketchup cartoon face.
