I was expecting a place that was primarily a cafe with cats around. Instead, this was a somewhat dingy two floor space which absolutely stank. They do have a food and drink menu but it didn’t feel sanitary enough to order from there. The cats...More

This place is all about the cats. If you want amazing drinks or food for yourself go to a human cafe :) Cats are well looked after. Reasonably priced. We paid ¥3,000 for two adults and two lots of cat treats. Well organised and cats...More

My partner and I came here the other evening to this cat cafe and I have mixed feelings about it. First of all I’m going to start by saying that I totally agree with the ‘only children over 12’ rule, but let me explain why....More

My one main thing I wanted to do in Japan was to go to a cat cafe! Since I never had been before, I didn’t know what to expect. This location wasn’t really a cafe, more just a large play room with cats. You can...More
