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!

1. Mipig Cafe

Located in Meguro City, it is usually open from 10am to 8pm everyday. It is the first miniature pig cafe in Japan! There are, however, many pigs to pet from kids to adults! You can relax with the micro pigs where you can eat a snack, read a book, or even take a nap! Keep in mind that you must register through their website before you visit. You should be there at least 5 minutes before your allocated time. The first 30 minutes is 800 yen with an additional 500 yen for every 30 minutes after. One drink order is required for every person which is usually 600 yen or more, and children under elementary school are free of charge.
