A new cat cafe on the block: EDO CAT CAFÉ.
Cat cafes and other animal cafes have been around for a while in Japan. What makes this one special? The interiors of this temporary cat cafe replicate various images from Japan’s woodblock prints. Other than geisha, samurai and Mt. Fuji, cats also featured prominently in beautiful prints. The space is created such that cats are freely roam about and even get in a bit of exercise.
The best part…a part of the income will directly be donated to organizations that deal with stray cats! So even if you are against the idea of animal cafes, this is a good reason to visit one!
The cafe is right in front of Ryogoku Station. Take the west exit and look to the right!
The highlight of this cafe is, as the name suggests, the atmosphere and feel of the Edo period.
Each part of the cafe is a photo opportunity with cats!
You can see cats everywhere!
The cafe is divided into different zones.
You will be impressed by the woodblock reprints in a variety of forms.
Here, you see cats in an onsen (hot spring) or sento (public bathhouse).
If you see a cat sleeping, please don’t wake them up!
And if you do, you’re going to get some scary looks.
What are you up to cute one?
Take a photo with cats in an atmosphere that screams of Japan!
Even though the cats seem to be in their own world, you never know one of them might just come to you!
Such an adorable kitten ♡
And those pink paws!
Quite a few kittens around too, small but unbelievably naughty.
This café is open until 31st of August 2018.
If you’re visiting Tokyo with kids, this is a great friendly place: EDO CAT CAFE.
Since we were so in love with the kitties, we created a Sleepy Cats feature too!
