Calico, Cafe Kichijoji

There is a new cultural trend in Tokyo – cat cafes.

Customers pay to sip tea and cuddle cats. Supposedly, there are cat cafes popping up all over the city. I must go and check one out and report back to my blog.

The logic behind these feline cafes is that you can get to enjoy cats and not have to have the worry of leaving them in cramped apartments while you are out at work. Take a look at this youtube piece.

Do you like cats enough to enjoy tea time together?
Very interesting and enterprising all the same!


Would cat cafes work in your country?
