Today, Tokyo is getting its second Gundam cafe. This one is in Odaiba, near the Fuji TV building. Out front, there's an enormous one-to-one scale Gundam—you know, if you can't find the cafe.

Inside, you can guzzle Gundam coffee and munch on Gundam snacks. There is also a Gundam "theme park", Gundam Front, with attractions, a shop shilling souvenirs, and a collection of Gundam art. In the same complex, there's also Strict-G, a store selling high-fashion Gundam clothing.

If you live in Tokyo, but cannot make it out to Odaiba, there is also a Gundam Cafe in Akihabara. It has Gundam restrooms. Just remember that if someone salutes you, salute them back.

In the above gallery, check out photos from websites Akiba Kakaku and Famitsu.

I went to the Gundam Café in Akihabara a few days ago. The food was decent, if expensive, the selection of swag at the gift shop was pretty terrible, the bathroom was really cool. There's a "start" button on the wall in the bathroom. It says to press it. If there's not a big lineup behind you, press it.

They have a reduced menu at lunchtime, which was kind of annoying, since I really wanted the dessert in the meal set, but all they let you get from that column at lunch was some haro drinks. The place is kind of small, better to go with a small group or you'll end up waiting for a long time to get in; you can seat three or four people to a table, it seems.
