Gundam Cafe

25 Apr

Last summer I wrote a post about the “life-size” 「ガンダム」 (Gundam) robot that was in Tokyo.

A photo I took last summer of the giant Gundam.

Well, yesterday the “Akihabara Gundam Cafe & Bar” (also called simply 「ガンダムカフェ」 (Gundam Cafe)) opened in the Akihabara area of Tokyo.

This cafe / bar is near the 「電気街口」 (“Electric Town” exit) of 秋葉原駅 (Akihabara train station).

It’s called a “cafe and bar” because from 8:30AM – 5:00PM it’s a cafe with lunch meals and coffee on the menu, and then from 5:00PM til closing it becomes a bar and serves dinner and alcohol.

They also sell souvenirs such as Gundam Coffee, Gundam ashtrays, Gundam coasters, せんべい (rice crackers), ガンダム人形焼き (Gundam “Ningyou-yaki” (which is a traditional Japanese snack)) and 「ガンプラ焼き」 (“Gunpla-yaki” (which is a たい焼き (traditional Japanese bean-filled snack) in the shape of a Gundam robot)…

    I think you are more familiar with Japan than me.
    Where do you get this kind of infomations about Japan?

      HAHA. 😉 Maybe. You’re young…I’ve been in Japan almost as long as you have! 😉

      From the TV news.

    Where you able to go in? I walked by there yesterday (Sunday) and the line up was very long so I just took a few pictures outside and left. I was just writing my own blog post about it (and as usual, I am behind on my writing).

      No. I didn’t even go there. I don’t go to Akihabara very often.

      The pictures in this post are from the cafe’s website…except the one at the top of the post of the giant robot—I took that one last summer.

    As a giant nerd, I approve of this fully.
