Animal cafes are very famous in Tokyo! Because of all the cute pets you can play with at a very reasonable price it has become a well-visited tourist attraction! It began with cats and now there are owls, miniature pigs and even snakes! Σ(T□T) Pets in Japan are given extreme care and love, you’ll hardly find any cages on your visit to some of the cafes, but instead you’ll be welcome to roam freely and play with your furry friends!

Some pet cafes also give their pets ‘off-time’, which means that customers are not allowed to pet or be near them so they can rest. With all of this in mind, we’ve put together the top pet cafes to spend your time with fun, loving and interesting pets!
