The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast, Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool. At the Museum of Yebisu Beer you can learn about the beer that was responsible for the town’s name, and enjoy dining at the popular noodle shops in the surrounding area.

    Loved the unique experience
    Loved the experience. My daughter got to spend lots of one on one with the adorable creatures who looked very happy and comfortable in the amazing set up. Staff was very friendly and even brought the cats up to me as I was sitting watching my kids. Very clean, cats looked happy and well looked after. They have treats you can purchase to feed the cats and that worked well. I would definitely recommend. We went late June so no crowds and no long waits.

    Great experience!
    I adore cats and had a great time at the cafe! The cats were a bit shy at first and ran away when I tried to pet them (my cat is the same when he meets people for the first time) but after a few minutes the cats were sniffing my belongings and got closer. We went in the morning when they had their breakfast and there were only a few people there so the cats were pretty relaxed.

    Calm cat cafe above the city near Yoyogi Park
    My grandson was keen to go to a cat cafe and this was our first time. At least 12 beautiful cats there and a tranquil cool spot from which to view the crowds in the street below. Anyone who knows cats will know that they choose whether or not to be petted and these seemed not that keen on petting, but were willing to play (free tassels provide) and eat treats (rather expensive ones) Free cold drinks from the dispensing machine no sign of coffee

Lovely cafe but felt uncomfortable as felt as if the cats were stressed. They did have high places to escape and also a hole in the wall but they didn’t want to be stroked. They just looked fed up of all the people to be honest.

The cats were very frisky and active. Most were averse to being touched, but they were not frightened and would walk & run all around us. They really like the treats you can pay to share with them.

Do not go to a cat cafe. Firstly, the cats look tired and grumpy. They are clearly overstimulated and unhappy. Second, a man had his hands down his trousers and was masturbating. There were children nearby. When I pointed this out to staff, they pretended not to see the problem. At my insistence, they asked him to stop but didn’t kick him out.

As a family we enjoyed the experience, but I feel like the negatives here outweigh the positives.
Positives - cats are cute, great if you don’t have a pet at home you can sit with several cats.
Negatives - the cats don’t seem happy, nor do they seem to like people.
The only time they seemed interested was when we purchased cat treats to feed them which is when they crowded around us.
One of the cats bit me when I went to pat it which is fine as it didn’t hurt me, but it made me think about why the cat reacted that way, obviously it’s not happy or may have been mistreated.
The price was a bit much for what it was included.

I have mixed feelings about this cat cafe. The cats looked well fed and cared for, but were not particularly friendly or happy. Didn't stay that long. Not sure I'd ever repeat the visit.
