The Cat Cafe is a new part of Japanese culture, and provides a healing space for cat lovers to interact with feline companions. Here, you have the opportunity to stroke cats, play with them, take photographs or just watch them sleeping. While all our cats have previously been abandoned by their owners, they are all completely domesticated and adorable, and are just the companions to energize and

As other reviewers have mentioned, this is not a "cafe." There is soda, water, and beer available for purchase, but it's not a cafe or bar; it's basically a smallish living room with a bunch of cats. Asakusa Nekoen is as a place where you...More

Contrary to what you might expect from the name, this isn't a cafe - just a small living room where you can stroke cats. However it's very relaxing, well priced and - most importantly - the cats themselves are rescues who are very well looked...More

It's just a dirty room with cats! It's not a cafe. There's a lot of cats living in a small room and you can stay there for 800 yens

Its just a small room with a lot of cats. If you like cats you would like it, but dont expect a cafe bar because its not.

If you love cats, please visit this cat cafe. Unlike all others, it's small, quite, social, the cats actually want your attention and the owner is one of the nicest people you'll ever meet (she also speaks English which is very helpful for tourists). This...More

Ok, so it isn't reeeeaaalllly a cat cafe - it's more like someone's apartment filled with rescued cats, with cold drinks available from a fridge - but so what. Most cat cafes in Tokyo are unethical and have only purebred fancy cats, bred specifically to...More

Basically, this is someone's apartment on the 6th floor of the building, they make you pay 800 yen to enter and then it's just a bunch of cats in a smelly room. And they don't serve coffee.

Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old
Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa.

a variety of different museums and galleries. At
Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the
grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed
alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at
the end of the year, when many people go on shopping
