Okay, the assistants of the cats were attentive to them at all times, the cats are free to do what they want, most were asleep or quiet.

I have no interest in cats whatsoever but my wife loves them. This was frustratingly (!) her favourite place in all of Tokyo - if not the whole of Japan! Sarcasm aside, it is a fascinating idea and does seem to completely de-stress everyone. Once...More

It is a two floor building with 30 cats. However, the name cafe is deceptive. It is a paid visit to the humane society. The lights are dim and the facility looks just like the humane society. It is not a bright and well ventilated...More
