Enjoy some time with these adorable cats while having a cup of coffee. A truly experience for cat lovers in Tokyo!


Located in Shinjuku, Cat Cafe Calico is one of the most popular cat cafes in Tokyo.

You may wonder if cat cafés actually exist, and what’s this about. Yes, cat cafés exist!!

The popularity of cat cafés in Japan is attributed to many apartments forbidding pets, and to cats providing relaxing companionship in what may otherwise be a stressful and lonesome urban life.

Cat cafés can be found in most major cities, but they are often not located at street level but on higher floors in multi-story buildings and not always easily found.

In this cafe you can enjoy spending time with cats while relaxing and having a cup of coffee. There’s over fifty cats!!  There are toys for you to play with these adorable cats and kittens.

When entering the café you may be asked to follow some rules to ensure cleanliness and animal welfare, in particular seeking to ensure that the cats are not disturbed by excessive and unwanted attention, such as by young children or when sleeping.

A truly relaxing, calming experience for cat lovers!
