Japan’s popular maid cafes seem to expanding to include all types of maids, from “meaty” maids to the “granny” maids who work at Cafe Rottenmeier. This curious cafe recently launched to correspond with Festival/Tokyo, a month-long performing arts festival.
While most maid cafes in Japan feed into the male fantasy of being spoon-fed by young, attractive maids, Cafe Rottenmeier aims to “bring back the classic.” The waitresses at this establishment range from 24 to 77 years old (although I’m not sure why 24 is the new over-the-hill age), and wear custom-made dresses, wigs, and 19th century European style makeup. It will only be open for a month, so if you have the hots for the elderly, make sure you visit!
