I couldn’t help it. I was in Tokyo… What’s an animal loving gal meant to do if she does not frequent a cat cafe when they are so readily presented?
Well by readily presented I mean hidden in a side street with minimal signs but hey… That’s Japan for you.
Initially I was searching for cat cafes I’d found online in Uneo and Ahkiabara – but with no street signs or names this was all but hopeless. Instead I moved my search to shibuya, in a bid to find some fluffy new friends.
And so I set off on my journey to find Hapineko cat cafe.
How to get there:
- Take th Hachiko exit from Shibuya station and walk towards Building 109
- As you approach Building 109, keep left but stay on the right hand side of the road
- Keep walking straight and keep your eyes peeled for this sign:
- Take the elevator to the third floor and enjoy
In terms of price this cafe was on the higher side but included a free coffee & chocolate – so price is pretty much even in comparison to other cat cafes in the area. Be prepared to spend at least ¥1200 for 30 minutes of cat lovin’.
The cats in this cafe were all friendly , enjoyed attention and were exceptionally beautiful.
All in all this was a very positive and one that I would do over and over again. If you’re looking to go ~ take the hour. You’ll need it.
