For starters, we went around 1 or 2 in the afternoon, meaning that most of the cats were very sleepy. This is pretty understandable, and, honestly, probably our own fault in not thinking ahead, since our cat at home loves to nap around this time...More

Been to other cafes which were much better. My wife and I were there about 12noon on a weekday. The cats were mostly sleepy or aloof. Only the “store manager” cat was cuddly and friendly. For 1,300 yen for 1 hours with a can drink,...More

Nice place to have a break with cool aircon and WiFi. To be honest the cats here aren’t the most friendly (been to better ones in Korea that really come up to you for cuddles and rubs). Perhaps it’s because they were adopted and been...More

Sweet, friendly cats amenable to petting are a great way to relax after the crowds at Fushimi Inari. All the cats are rescues. There is a bathroom onsite, and you can have a drink or an icecream with the price of your admission. Cash only.

This feline venue provided a welcomed respite from the bustling crowds outside journeying to and fro Fushimi Inari-taisha. It was nap time as most of the cats were slumbering, including Bob AKA Store Manager, who resembled one of our cats back home. But nonetheless, it...More

Just near to Fushimi Inari Taisha Shrine, marvelous place to have a relaxing time, surrounded by cats, accompanied with good music, cold or hot drinks or ice cream if you wish, they have English spoken staff.

Southern Kyoto
Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi
Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist
attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens,
temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for
strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine
itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the
mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers,
picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the
