Japanese Jeeves waits on lady diners at Tokyo's butler cafe

First, someone in Japan came up with the idea of the "maid café," where an all-female wait staff is decked out in old-fashioned maid outfits. (There's even one in Toronto).

Now, it's the ladies' turn.

Young entrepreneur Yoko Otsuka has launched Tokyo's first bulter café, whose female clientele is waited on hand and foot by tuxedo-clad English-style butlers (think Anthony Hopkins's character in Remains of the Day except played by Ken Watanabe).
