Since I wrote a book about theme restaurants, we filmed one of the scenes at an Akihabara maid cafe, Cos-Cha. There are more photos from this schoolteacher-themed cosplay cafe in this post.

I showed host Antoine de Caunes who is the master!

Yunmao Ayakawa, a famous cosplayer, taught us maid lessons such as the proper way to bow. We appeared together in Andrew Zimmern’s Bizarre Foods (remember these photos from the Travel Channel shoot?)

Antoine wore a maid headband and clowned around — I couldn’t stop laughing.

Quel horreur: instead of listening to the teacher, Antoine drew a naked lady. I gasped and told on him. “Maitresse, maitresse! Antoine, il fait des bêtises!”

We played the “janken” (rock-paper-scissors) game, where the winner got to add an ingredient to the glass. Antoine kept losing — so in went natto, raw egg, and seaweed.

Filming a TV show is hectic but super-fun, especially if you’re working with the drole and dapper Antoine de Caunes! Keep your eyes peeled on my blog for more exclusive photos from the shoot.

Interested in the maid cafe boom? I wrote a book about Tokyo’s weirdest themed restaurants — come check it out.
