Okay, so I planned on coming to this cat cafe thinking that this was going to be ridiculous...but you know what? I had an awesome time! Tokyo can be a crazy city: too much to see, too busy, and the whole constant onslaught of neon-colored anime can be EXHAUSTING. With that in mind, it makes sense why places like Cat... More

You pay 1000 yen (roughly $10 USD) for an hour, and this covers unlimited hot/cold drinks you can get from a vending machine.... More

This cat cafe is located in a good building near Higashi-Ikebukuro station. Good crowd in evening. All cats are healthy and good looking. Very friendly. For a charge of 1100 Yen for 1 hour on a weekday, you can also have unlimited cups of cool drinks. You can use cat toys for playing with cats and use wireless LAN. It... More

The cats are sweet, if sleepy and uninterested to play. They're cats, and cats like to lie around and laze - especially in the late afternoon when I went there! This cafe has a free flow of drinks and you can charge your electronics while you sit in a corner and watch the cats sleep - unless one rouses from... More

This was my first visit at a cat café ever and it was a really positive surprise that made me a big fan of the concept. We spent a few hours in this café to recover from several days of walking through Tokyo's busy shopping streets and attractions and plan our next steps. I had been wondering whether how clean...

I have been to Nekorobi many times and I always leave with a stupid grin on my face! The kitties are most active at night or when they just open for feeding at any time you can always count on a couple ready to give a pose or two or play with the latest toy around. The Persian kitty can... More

I didn't plan on coming here, but the other cat cafe I was going to visit wasn't where google told me and I stumbled onto this place. I'm glad I did because it was a great experience. It's on the third floor of a building, but you can easily see the cafe from the ground so it's quite easy to... More

I love cats and it's not only limited to cute cats only. Nekobori was a fun cat cafe where when I visited, the place was clean, extraordinarily huge cats greeted me and got me excited. These cats largely ignored the visitors most probably because they're interested to get some sleep or perhaps they got a lot of attention throughout the... More

Going to the cat cafe was a lot of fun. All the cats were very cute, but most would just ignore you probably because they get lots of attention all day. But it was fun to do in Japan and I would go again! The staff were very nice and will help you interact with the cats (like showing you... More

If you're a cat lover, this cafe is a mut visit. You have to pay ¥1000/hour to play, pet and feed the cat. Well....of course, you are not going to find various food or drinks here. Drinks are coming from a vending machine and food, or snacks to be exact, is served on a table and you can have it... More

Staying in Ikebukuro

Ikebukuro
Ikebukuro is an area of massive development. Several thousand tenants occupy two giant department stores and shopping malls, where all sorts of shopping and gourmet foods can be enjoyed. The 60-story building at the east entrance of the station, Sunshine City, is a landmark within Ikebukuro and features an aquarium, planetarium, theme park as well as an observation platform. The popular name for the western side of this area is "Otome Road" (Maiden Road) and there are many shops selling products related to anime with a female theme.
