Experience the legendary cat & coffee thing, sipping a latte and petting the kitties at a real Tokyo cat café!
My favorite cat café – the Calico, in Shinjuku – has around fifty cats. At any time, half are working in the café and half of them are off duty and sleeping in the back room.
Hours: 10:00 – 22:00
Admission: ¥1000 for the first hour, ¥150 for every ten minutes after that
Restrictions: Not for small children – you must be at least 12 years old to come in and play with the cats.
