“Harry” Hedgehog Cafe


Located in Roppongi, this is the cafe where you can get up close and personal with African pygmy hedgehogs.
What do they look like? Well, like all hedgehogs, they have a spiny coat and short legs. These tiny spiny coats can be dangerous if not handled properly. First you need to learn how to touch them and get them to warm up to you.
The cafe is located just a one minute walk from the nearest station.


Come play with us, we are waiting for you!!

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. 
Caution : This cafe is probably not good for people with Ophidiophobia!

Cat Cafe MoCHA



Did you know that, in Japan, the number of cats is surpassing number of dogs as pets? Cats are easier to keep because they don’t require much space, and no walking necessary!


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.




This cafe hosts many cats both long and short hair (all very soft regardless). Enjoy the relaxing atmosphere while playing with cats, you wouldn’t want to say goodbye.

Owl cafe




Fukuro no sato is a small cafe located right in front of Harajuku station. It’s so popular that you will absolutely need a reservation if you want to visit.
In case of a full house, no visitors will be accepted. This is for the well-being of the owls so it won’t stress them out too much. Rules are clearly written in both English and Japanese. 




You can touch and play with the owls while enjoying your drink. The one hour goes like this, petting, looking, holding and taking photos. 
Remember if you want to hold one on your arm, keep your elbow bent at 90 degrees otherwise the owl might fly away. Also, watch out for the poop! Like other birds, owls digest food very quickly.
Honestly it’s like a dream come true for a Harry Potter fan like me.

Location : 30 second walk from Harajuku station
Opening hours : 10.00-19.00
Duration: 1 hour
Price : 1500 yen with one soft drink and a free gift!
