Since one of my friends Neko (of course this is not his real name though XD) asked me about “Neko cafe (cat cafe)” in Japan, thought about do a bit of research on it and write about it.
I guess we have many weird (?) types of cafe nowadays in Japan, start with
“Maid cafe”, “Shitsuji cafe (butler cafe)“, “Neko cafe”, “Samurai cafe”, “Handa duke cafe” that you can try soldering etc.(didn’t even know about some of these until today!!)
OK, let’s get back to Neko cafe XD.
Check out the videos on YouTube here. Clicking the link you will see the result of the videos for “Neko cafe”.
Neko cafe is a cafe that the cafe own some cats and the customers can play with the cats while you enjoy your cafe and tea. You can check the definition on the wikipedia here.
This is the photo I am borrowing from this neko cafe in Tokyo.
The shop has nice site with many photos and blog so go there, it is in Japanese but I think it will be fun to see those photos! Let’s stick with this shop to find out about the neko cafe. Since I do not know much about it, I cannot talk about general neko cafe, so referring this shop as an example ;).
In this neko cafe, seems there are 17 cats.
This probably be a special thing about this shop though, there are set price with hours.
This shop charges 150yen for 10 minutes and with the set price,
1) 1,500yen for 2 hours
2) 1,800yen for 3 hours (this is only available for weekdays)
You would need to order drink with separately from above charge.
The price of the drinks is between 200 – 500yen.
Also you can have anything to drink plan at 350yen. They have 5 kinds of hot drink and 5 kinds of cold drink.
