harukasaitさん(@harukasait)がシェアした投稿 -

Nekobukuro is not strictly a cat cafe, but it has fame with uniquely designed interior, which created a society of cats, looking like a mixture of amusement park and kindergarten. When you go through the left-handed door, you see a fake train carriage stopping at “Nekobukuro station,” with plenty of cats sleeping.

Then you go into the area that features a society of cats. Guests can play 15 to 20 cats with reasonable price. It has “snack time” twice a day, which guests can feed cats.

Соняさん(@homozoid)がシェアした投稿 -

In this cafe, not only can you play with dogs, but also you can take them for a walk! This cafe made its first store in Shibuya in 2012, and opened a new branch in Shinjuku.

The owner opened this cafe to create a place where those who love dogs but cannot have one at home can interact with dogs. Also, she wanted to offer guests opportunities to imagine what it would be like to have a dog by allowing them to interact and walk with dogs. Since she has seen lots of dogs left from owners due to their unconsidered purchase, she strives to reduce the number of those unfortunate dogs.
