  • Well hello hello guys.

  • As you can see it is a rainy day here in Tokyo.

  • Not ideal for sightseeing but we are not staying indoors.

  • We're actually going to be heading to a cat cafe and if you've been following this channel

  • for a while you know that we love cat cafes.

  • We've been to them in Korea, in Thailand, Malaysia, Germany.

  • Yeah.

  • Any chance we have to visit a cat cafe we go to them and Japan is full of cat cafes

  • because this is where trend originated.

  • So we have come to Ikebukuro (池袋) there is a whole bunch to choose from over here

  • so yeah let's go find some cats.

  • So the shoes go in this little locker and you wear slippers.

  • We have made it inside the cat cafe.

  • Look at this little guy.

  • So relaxed.

  • Oh, all stretched out.

  • Are you cute?

  • Are you cute?

  • Yes, I'm cute.

  • And this little guy right here looks so much like our Siamese cat that we used to have.

  • His name was Tommy and this one is so similar.

  • Mmm.

  • This guy is hanging out on top of the treats.

  • I wonder if this is a clue like feed me.

  • But this looks like human treats.

  • I want cat treats.

  • What do you think kitty?

  • And check out this boss hanging out on the couch.

  • Look at you cat.

  • See we are enjoying lots of quality time with the cats.

  • It is not as busy as I thought it would be but I guess it is the middle of the week on

  • a rainy day.

  • Yeah.

  • So this is actually really good for us because the cat to human ratio is in our favour.

  • It is fantastic.

  • Yeah.

  • So we should talk about the price because this is a little bit different from the cat

  • cafes in Korea.

  • Like in Korea you would typically pay 8 to 10 dollars for a drink and once you bought

  • the drink you kind of had access to the cafe and you could play with the cats as long as

  • you wanted to.

  • Here you have to pay buy a time slot.

  • It is 200 Yen for 10 minutes.

  • Yeah.

  • It is 200 Yen for 10 minutes which is less than 2 US dollars so if you end up staying

  • here half and hour that is six bucks and the maximum is 2400 Yen and there is no limit

  • on how long you can stay.

  • So yeah if you wanted to hang out with cats all day long.

  • Yeah.

  • You technically could.

  • You could but I think half an hour to an hour is probably enough for the average person.

  • Meowzers.

  • Oh yeah, he likes it.

  • Give it belly rubs.

  • Oh belly strokes.

  • Okay so this is pretty cool.

  • The cafe has a lot of different like sections.

  • So there is an area where you can sleep on beds.

  • Have a little nap.

  • They also have an area where you can play board games.

  • They have different areas with couches.

  • They also have an area with computer games.

  • They have comic books.

  • Manga.

  • Anime whatever that is.

  • So yeah lots of options where you can just chill with cats and enjoy a relaxed few hours.

  • What is going on?

  • I'm going to feed some cats.

  • It is 500 Yen and you can buy a lollipop or cat food.

  • Apparently they know it is coming.

  • Are you a Maine Coon?

  • Are you a Maine Coon?

  • Wow, Audrey you've made a lot of friends.

  • I have.

  • Audrey did you become a cat whisperer?

  • Hahaha.

  • And as you can see over here Cat Cafe Mocha has a whole bunch of locations all over Tokyo

  • so this isn't the only one you can come to.

  • Alright guys so that cat cafe was a lot of fun.

  • It is the largest and nicest cat cafe we've ever been to on our travels.

  • Yeah.

  • So yeah we really enjoyed it.

  • We ended up spending 40 minutes there and since you pay by 10 minute increments it was

  • 200 Yen times 4 so 800 Yen per person.

  • We also bought cat food which was really worth it.

  • We really enjoyed feeding the cats.

  • That was the highlight.

  • So yeah the total itself it was 2100 Yen.

  • Yeah.

  • Which came to just under $20 US dollars.

  • Yeah.

  • And I would say it is a really unique activity you can do here in Tokyo.

  • The cats were so sweet.

  • It was really fun feeding them.

  • So definitely worth it.

  • Definitely if you're are a cat lover you'll want to check this place out.

  • Yes.

Well hello hello guys.
