This one takes some explanation. I thought this was an "anime" themed restaurant geared toward kids who love playing Japanese video games. So I took this environmental portrait of two of the hostesses who very much try to look and act as anime characters... except neither of them is Japanese. (Reminds me of the time I saw Alice in Wonderland played by an Asian in Disneyland.)

Anyway, I missed the mark completely. Check out this blog post which explains the real story behind the Tenshi Cafe and the Japanese maids:
