Weirdest Tokyo Cafes

Japan is known for its weird and wonderful customs, and cafes are no exception. Tokyo cafes are some of the most interesting in the world. They feature everything from cats to maids, and everything in between. One day in Tokyo, I decided to go experience a few of the weirdest Tokyo cafes. Here is what I found…

Tokyo Cafes to Experience:

Cat Cafe

Let’s kick things off at THE most famous quirky Tokyo cafes – the Cat Cafe.

When we enter the 8th floor of this unsuspecting office building, we’re told to take our shoes off immediately, wash our hands, and listen to the house rules.

Once we’ve agreed to the rules, we’re given a key to a locker to store our stuff and a few necessary cat accessories.

From there we follow the paws up the stairs to the main attraction – just a ton of cats hanging out.

I couldn’t believe how many cats there actually were, and I like the concept of enjoying the pet without any of the responsibilities, you can come and go as you please, you don’t have to feed it or clean up its poop – these are the same reasons why I love being an uncle.

Owl Cafe

From the cat cafe we headed over to Harajuku for a real Tokyo cafes hoot.

Owls were perched in a small glassed-in room with a guide explaining each species.

You could pet a few of the owls, but that was about it. If you love owls this was pretty cool for a few minutes, but that’s about it.

Hedgehog Cafe

On our way to the Maid Cafe, we randomly passed by Harry’s Hedgehog Cafe and had to go check it out.

The hedgehog cafe was the most laid back of the three Tokyo cafes animal encounters. We were given a small seating area surrounding a troth full of hedgehogs to observe, pet and play with.

The best part of this experience was that, you can feed them their lunch!

Just like the cat cafe and owl cafe, the “cafe” aspect itself is really ore of a side note, but you can still get vending machine coffee, tea and soft drinks with your entrance price.

Maid Cafe

And then we enter into a parallel universe. Where Japanese women dressed as maids, refer to you as master, and all of the food is shaped like cute little teddy bears…

I think its best, We tried not worry about making sense of it all, or even justifying why you’re there, but you just gotta sit back and enjoy the entertainment… alcohol definitely helps.

Oh and if it’s your birthday, this place is the best of all the Tokyo cafes!
