If you’re heading to Japan in the near future, and are still bummed that you missed out on the giant RX-78 that graced Tokyo last summer, plus won’t be around for its grand return (plus beam saber) later this year, have solace. Because during your visit to Akihabara, why not take a break between trips to the arcade for rounds of Gundam vs Gundam and while comparison shopping for the best prices on the PSP version or model kits with a stop by the just opened Gundam Cafe!
The 60 seat capacity establishment is conveniently accessible from the JR Station’s Denki-gai Exit, just below the Yamanote line. While there, one can kick back and relax by watching videos that detail the franchise’s rich history while enjoying obanyaki that are shaped like the RX-78 and which are served by waitresses that don the official uniform from the show (who will also pose for pictures with you).
