Went here on a trip in Kyoto at the demands of a friend who wanted to see hedgehogs in the flesh. I trusted them to research a little beforehand but after reading these reviews I can 100% confirm the claims of others that the animals...More

It was a fun experience to get to see them up close but it was late in the day and they didn’t seem to want to be there anymore. It was a cool experience nevertheless.

Where else are you going to hold a hedgehog? OK, it is with gloves but still. The place is really well run. You hold the hedgehogs with gloves (if you wish), and they are brought to you in a little plastic tub. They are super...More

So we paid 700 yen per person for 20 mins with a hedgehog. It's literally sitting with a hedgehog in a tray in front of you for 20 mins. You can hold it, but it doesn't do much. This is my first time in a...More

In my experience as a customer in this hedgehog cafe, me and my sister did not have an enjoyable time being up close and personal with the animals. We felt it was cruel as the hedgehog we were given was immediately frightened and was reluctant...More

Absolutely loved being up close and personal with these beautiful animals! All customers are seated in front of a tank with 2 or so hedgehogs so you are guaranteed a cuddle! Staff were so helpful, with staff member Natalie being a stand out! She was...More

One of those chance things. Walking through the markets and saw the sign couldn’t resist. Perfect for kids but honestly there was only one kid there everyone else was a childlike adult. You wear gloves to hold them and can pay a little extra to...More

We came here just before closing time, which is early evening. We paid 1400 for 2 people for 20 minutes. We were given a hedgehog to share. Our little guy must've had a restful day and was ready to be active. Once we got him...More

Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find
themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited
by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of
fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are
piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed
outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub
for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes.
