Rent a girlfriend, today!
If you’re feeling lonely and think that you need some company for the day, why not try Akihabara’s newest offering? The “rent-a-girlfriend” for a day service, starting as low as ¥4,000 for a mere 40 minutes!
Introducing “Cute Room”, the revolutionary system that only exists in Akihabara, where you can get yourself one out of twenty girls as your companion for as long as… well, your wallet can sustain!
“Cute Room” is actually a shop that deals with temporary girlfriends for the day. Basically, customers who visits the shop can get to spend some “quality” time with the girl of his choice and engage in a variety of meaningful activities, such as playing a video game with each other or even exchanging presents.
A list of services they provide.
If you’re worried about the range of selection, don’t fret as there’s at least 20 different girls (18 revealed at the top of the post, 2 more revealed after the shop is opened) at your disposal, although I highly that you can get everyone of them to serve you at once. Basically, these girls will do whatever you want (no sexual service, sorry guys), at least those that are limited to this short list:
1. Play video games (Wii PS3 PSP XBOX DS)
2. Watch a DVD with the girl
3. Play board games or card games
4. Massage your hand
5. Lie on her lap while she cleans your ears
6. Tsundere, dere dere slap
7. Read a bedtime story (funny that their operating hours goes to 10pm latest)
8. Take a photo together
9. Handmade candy
10. Get a love letter
11. Get cellphone email from her
12. Looking at you (…looking?)
13. Bromide (this actually means buy the photo)
14. Exchange presents
The kind of services they provide ranges from normal to a little awkward. I mean, seriously, why the heck would you pay to get a Tsundere slap? Not only that, get a love letter when she’s probably only going to meet you for a single time? Way beyond my comprehension.
Leaving the services aside, “Cute Room” actually has some pretty well thought out concept. Basically, rates starts at ¥1,000 for 40 minutes. However, you’re required to rent a room which comes in 4 different flavours:
- Sister’s room (oh, we know you that you’ve dreamt of that before…)
- Maid’s room
- Japanese room
- Limited Edition time only, Monster Hunter room.
Then, you’re required to outfit the girl of your choice with a costume, which will further cost you another few thousand yens, and it’ll accumulate to a grand total of ¥4,000 for 40 minutes. There are a number of other packages available, such as a 60 minutes and 80 minutes package, which of course will be more expensive than the first package. Each package is liable to a ¥2,000 charge for every extra 20 minutes. None of the costumes were revealed as of yet, although I bet my money on popular anime clothing.
If you’re interested, you can actually check out their official website here.
Not only that, it seems that 30 lucky customers will get a special rate when they first arrive at “Cute Room” on Saturday, a day before their official launch on the 4th of October. More or less a way of welcoming early birds to the shop?
Despite it’s… unique kind of service provided, “Cute Room” is not exactly the first of it’s kind as there are at least several more shops in Akihabara that offers somewhat the same kind of service as what “Cute Room” would provide. Of course, they provide slapping services too.
Frankly speaking, I don’t really see the point of having such a service down here. However, if it’s what the industry wants… so be it. But seriously, paying to get slapped? I could slap myself and get done and over with that.
