“Fun for cat lovers”

Cat Cafe Mocha, Akihabara
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Found on the second floor of the building it occupies, Cat Cafe Mocha operates on a 'pay as you stay' basis, at time of writing this is 200 yen every 10 minutes you stay plus an initial fee for unlimited drinks from the two drinks machines available.

There are many cats which are obviously very used to attention from customers, they are very relaxed and most aren't particularly playful. The cafe itself is nicely decorated and has a very relaxing atmosphere, there are also some games consoles that you can play on if you need a break from the cats.

Overall my experience at Cat Cafe Mocha was a good one, the staff spoke good english too. My only criticism would be that your time in the cafe starts from the minute you buy your initial unlimited drinks ticket in then entrance hall which can mean that if there is a wait to get a drink or retrieve your slippers that must be worn in the cafe then you've already wasted a decent chunk of your first 10 minutes. I also found the 200 yen per 10 minutes to be a little expensive if you intend spend more than an hour at the cafe.

I was trying to quietly and respectfully wait for my group (i couldnt join them because their slippers wouldnt fit my US mens size 12 feet) and the lady made me wait for them outside in the rain because their waiting room (which literally said waiting in all english caps) was for potential customers only.

Looking for a place to come to unwind from the busy streets of Akihabara? This place provides that quiet time you need plus cute, playful cats. Grab a coffee and take a seat because there are cats galore.

The cat toys are a free for all and you can buy cat snacks for 500 yen. I feel this place is such a calming environment and the cat helpers are genuinely caring for their cats.

Definitely recommend!

Instructions were given in clear English that you pay how long you've been there and a base amount for unlimited drinks.

The cats are so cute and very sleepy, lots of lovely breeds of cat! Those people who work there have the greatest job ever!!!!
Can wander about and stroke or play with the cats. There are also board games you can play with each other.

I chose to feed the cats for 500 yen extra, you have the option of a lollipop or a bowl and spoon. I went for the spoon, and the moment the woman disappear to fetch the stuff the cats all knew what was going to happen and immediately woke up and assembled.

They're a greedy bunch! They do try to grab the spoon and lean up against you, i'm fine with this as i have 2 cats at home which try to do this to me all the time! They have their claws trimmed so unlike at home its not painful and sharp and scratchy.

If you miss you're cats at home it's a fab place to indulge in some feline attention and cuddles.

Located on the second floor of a building on Sotokanda in Akihabara (Electric City). This was my first time in one of these facilities. Well run facility with plenty of cats that obviously get lots of attention. The staff was friendly, but a note of caution......you are charged per 10 minute interval that you spend socializing with the cats. If you lose track of time, you can run up quite a tab! You must try this at least once.....
