Maidreamin Shinjuku: a nice maid cafe near Shinjuku station


No need to go to Akihabara! You can experience the kawaii world of maid cafes at maidreamin near Shinjuku station's east exit.

Feel free to follow favy!

Maidreamin Shinjuku east exit location

Maidreamin is a major maid cafe chain in Japan. The shop introduced in this article is centrally located in Shinjuku, downtown Tokyo, just a short distance walk from the east exit of Shinjuku station.

How it works

You're charged ¥800 per hour and must order at least one item every hour. Children 12 and under receive free ice cream and can be there for free.

If you're put off by the image of maid cafes being mostly for male visitors, rest assured because this place is the perfect place to bring the kids! It's pretty common for groups of girls to go there too.

You get to chat with the maids while they serve you your food. They'll even perform a special ritual for you, a kind of blessing to make your food taste good.

Some maids speak very good English, and they have menus in English too, so you shouldn't have any problems ordering and interacting with the maids even if you can't speak Japanese.

Special combos

For a full maid cafe experience, you might want to order a special combo. You get food and/or drinks, a small gift and a souvenir picture with the maids.

Note that you cannot take a picture of the maids unless you have one of these special combos or pay for a souvenir Instax photo (from ¥800).

Some of the cutest desserts around

Many people go to maid cafes for the sweets! At maidreamin, the animal-themed parfaits are particularly popular. They also have some fluffy pancakes drenched in either a strawberry, matcha, or custard sauce. Dessert items are ¥780.

Some Japanese classics done maid-style

The food menu features cute Japanese curry, omurice (omelette on rice), Hamburg steak and pasta. Everything is legitimately pretty good and reasonably priced too (about ¥1,000).


It's a good place to have a few drinks with friends too. You can have sake, Japanese plum wine, sour drinks, wine, beer, and many other drinks for ¥500 to ¥1,000. The maids might even join in your kampai!
