Quail Climbing Gym
Rock climbing gym
👍👍 Unlike most reviews here, that are only based on a video, I actually went there. It is a very small gym, but it has everything you need. The fact that routes are marked by tape was quite unusual for me and it certainly was a challenge to completely memorize a whole problem before attempting it. It w...

👍👍 It was an absolutely amazing experience to do the Mario kart and the city center of Osaka! It was incredibly super fun to book with friends together, and you just need an international driving license permit or translation of your driving license if you’re a foreigner. I love the most about this exp...

👍👍 結婚指輪を作りに行きました。 来店前はカンカンする方をしたいと思っていましたが、作りたい形などからワックス(写真の青いやつ)で形を作るプランになりました。 来店前、難しそうだなと思っていたので少し緊張しましたが、最初から最後まで案内してくれた店員のお姉さんがとても丁寧で優しく、すごく楽しかったです。 カ...

Heaven's Gate
Cosplay cafe
👍👍 The average google maps reviews for this location are so high due to a maid cutely asking you to provide them with a review / while hovering until you do so. I still loved my time here despite this distasteful practice. That being said, the experience is exactly what one would want from a maid cafe...

Cosplay cafe
😐 Interesting experience, desserts are good. Food is okay. The maids really hound you for a review and they watch you input it, so the ratings are probably overinflated. Do note that there’s like a 880 yen service charge and each person needs to order an item. The items are overinflated in price, but...

Maidreamin' Shibuya
Cosplay cafe
😐 I have read a lot of good reviews for that however this is rather small place which seems a bit odd to me. When we entered it was full of strange looking people who seems to enjoy getting drunk and looking in to (to)young Japanese girls. I know it is part of Japanese modern culture but it does seems...

Maidcafe Maidreamin Osu Manekineko Store
Cosplay cafe
😐 I brought my mom here when she visited Japan. It was kind of embarrassing and quite expensive, 10,000 yen for 1 hour for 4 of us. We got a parfait, a key holder, a drink, and a picture with one of the maids.

Maidcafe Maidreamin Shinjuku East-exit Store

😠 Similar to what another commenter said, they definitely try forcing you leave a 5 star review on Google for them at the end of the meal. I’m pretty sure most of the 5 star reviews here are because of that, we certainly were fooled. Our personal experience: went with a group of friends shortly after...

👍👍 Great shisha with a wide selection of flavors and an awesome system! For the fair price of around 2700-2800 yen you can get a shisha, drink, all you can eat curry and rice, all you can eat candy and nuts which is an insane deal! And the atmosphere of the shop is really amazing being on a rooftop and...

👍👍 Accomodating even without reservation 👍🏻 Numbing cream was awesome, but be sure to ask for the price first because it’s different from what is posted on their website Smart phone size (no color)was supposed to be ¥30,000~ but in my case plain black with very minimal shading’s cost me ¥55,000

👍👍 This is a must have meal/experience. Seriously the best meat I’ve ever had in my life. The beef is so juicy and crispy it just melts in your mouth. We lined up at 11:45am on a Wednesday and got seated at 12:15pm (they actually have 3 different locations all within 200m of each other so look out arou...

👍👍 The Japanese coffee scene is one of the best in the world and this coffee shop not only exemplifies the experience, but also stands at the top of the scene.
