“Harry” Hedgehog Cafe
Located in Harajuku, this is the cafe where you can get up close and personal with African pygmy hedgehogs.

Sure you’ve heard of dog and cat cafes but how about snake cafe? Let us introduce you to Cafe & Snake in Omotesando!
A snake cafe is arguably one of the most unique animal cafes in the world (in our opinion at least). Not to worry, these snakes are not poisonous and very friendly(?)!
The cafe area is divided into 2 zones;
1. food and drink zone
2. play zone
When you enter the cafe, you can choose a snake in a cage to keep you company at your table. In the play zone, you will be able to actually touch and hold a snake.

For those who can’t keep a pet, visiting pet cafes is one option. Whenever you want to hang out with kitties, you can come to the cafe. No need to care for them. This is the reason why cat cafes are becoming very popular.
