Overview

Mobile Suit Gundam was created in 1979 by renowned animator Yushiyuki Tomino, and today it remains a merchandising colossus accounting for almost 90% of Japan's plastic-figurine market. Twenty-one years after its launch it is now officially headquarted at the newly opened Gundam Cafe in Akihabara, the most fitting place it could ever open. If you are a fanatic or merely curious, then this is a great spot to learn not only about the giant mecha-warrior, but also about Japan's burgeoning otaku culture. By day this themed-cafe offers Gundam food and drink served by Gundam-clad employees, while Gundam nights include alcohol. So brave a voyage to the Gundam Cafe, if only for short while, because it's definitely worth visiting at least once!-Stephen Lebovits
