Cooling off


Waitresses dressed in maid costumes sprinkle water on the sidewalk during a summer event at Tokyo's Akihabara district, on Saturday. The practice is known as "uchimizu."

Almost correct, the Girl second from the left with the long Green hair (Two Tails style) is NOT a waitress but a Hatsune Miku character. But that is a fun picture for sure. thanks.

I can hear the little-girl voices calling out right now... and those of the maids. The otaku must have loved this... out there with their smartphones and cameras.

I like Akihabara, and the maids are bright and colourful... but it's amazing how many people just blank them when they're handing out paper hankies or flyers.

Nice happy photo ^_^

It's far from being so in Japan.
