Seiyuu Cafe in Japan (Voice actor, Akihabara, Matsukaze Masaya)

What’s the latest hangout for seiyuu-philes in Japan? Why, Seiyuu Cafe of course.

Name: Seiyuu Cafe (声優cafe)

Address: 〒101-0021 東京都千代田区外神田3-15-7 第2丸信ビル8F
Telephone: 03-3254-2911
Opens in July 2011. Permanently Closed on 10 March 2012.
Official website:

Business hours:
Usual days: open 13:00 – close 20:00

The cafe is opened by seiyuu Matsukaze Masaya 松風 雅也 and it is a theme cafe of all things related to being a professional seiyuu.

Here’s the concept as described on the website.

The theme cafe is a new way of expressing the work of animation voice actors in Japan. It welcomes you to come in and enjoy Akihabara and the cafe’s delicious drinks which are good for the throat.

In addition to the cafe’s original menu, there’s also a Seiyuu Jukebox 『声優ジュークボックス』 where customers can listen to seiyuus reading selected dialogues ‘live’. What this means is that you can choose among a number of dialogue and order for the dialogue you want. The seiyuu working at the cafe will go on the stage and perform the reading for you live. (I wonder how that’s going to be like…and who are the seiyuus who are going to perform? I guess we can only find out after the cafe opens in July ^^)

In addition, there will also be limited goods that can only be bought at the cafe, such as Seiyuu cafe Original drama CD and T-shirt.

It is a cafe where animation fans, seiyuu fans can relax in when they go to Akihabara.

Inside the cafe.

The cafe setting and atmosphere is like that of a voice actor’s office and recording studio. It even has a microphone, a mini stage and speakers like the professional set-up.

There are table for 2’s and comfortable counter seats for 4’s up to a maximum capacity of 40 customers.
