The owner was lovely, and the cats are friendly and well cared for. You can tell that the owner genuinely loves the animals. The cats are rescued but very affectionate and calm temperament. They are available for adoption. The owner is so friendly, and easy to talk to; when we were leaving to get lunch, she recommended a local restaurant,... More

This was a perfect break from a hectic trip for my daughters who really miss our own cats and dogs. Owner speaks great English. I didn't know what to expect but it is therapeutic to sit and pet a cat. Cats are very friendly. Worth the cost!

The lady was really nice and she spoke English very well, I like that she asked all of her guests where they were from. The kitties were so cute and peaceful and they have very good conditions. The slippers that you have to wear were so cute. 猫大好き(^∇^)

On a high floor in a nondescript building, this tiny little 'cafe' is really just a living room full of the sweetest, most relaxed kitties. Between the happy cats and the view over the city, it's a great relaxing break. All of the cats are rescues, some from Fukushima after the recent disaster. The owner collects donations to send food... More

After being in Tokyo for a week, my friends and I decided to visit this place on the last day of our trip. Whilst originally we were dubious about cats being used as somewhat of a tourist spectacle, we were soon put at ease when we entered the room. The owner is lovely and genuinely cares about the animals, and... More

I visited here whilst staying in Japan and was genuinely gutted when we were unable to visit again before we left, the cats were friendly and feeding them was great fun, the owner was so lovely and clearly cared about the cats and loved what she did. It's a totally surreal yet awesome Japanese experience, definitely recommend this place I'd... More

The owner has about 10 cats which you spend ¥800 / hour to play with. It's in her lounge and a bit weird but totally Japanese! It's something to say you've done but will probably never do again. Remember before going that cats sleep for 20/24 hours of the day so don't expect them to be all bumbling balls of... More

We took our two kids (ages 8 and 10) here after wearing them out on the normal Tokyo tourist attractions. The cat cafe is within walking distance of the major tourist attractions in Asakusa and was easy to find. The Cat Cafe was nice and clean. When we arrived the cats were sleeping, but we bought the cat snack for... More

I would give it 4 stars because my son had a really good time playing with the cats. The place is small but clean. Things went well until it's time to pay. I gave her 10,000 yen and she gave me 3,500 yen back for one hour (¥800for me and ¥700 for my son). I told her I gave her... More

While in Japan, I checked out a few cat cafes and this was my favourite. Although small (it's a converted apartment), it's cosy and you can feed the cats and play with them with a variety of toys. The owner specifically gets cats that were strays or unwanted by owners with the aim of rehoming. She takes good care of... More

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighborhood Profile
Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
