It's been announced that music producer Tsunku will be opening an idol training cafe called "AKIHABARA Backstage Pass" in  November. The cafe will be located in "AKIBA Culture ZONE" in Akihabara, about a 3-minute walk from the "AKB Theater".

The employees of the cafe will be comprised of girls who aspire to become idols and singers. While interacting with customers, they will mature into full-fledged idols who'll eventually be ready to make their debut. The scenario has been described to be a 'realistic idol raising simulation', where the customers are the 'producers'. Additionally, the cafe will bring in idols and singers who have already made their debut.

For the project, Tsunku will team up with multi-creator Shikura Chiyomaru, who is known for producing the concept cafe, "Ouritsu Afilia Mahou Gakuin", and the popular game, "Stein's Gate". The cafe also has plans to collaborate with anime and games periodically.

"AKIHABARA Backstage Pass" is scheduled to open its doors in late November. An official website will also be launched at the end of this month.
