super sweet kitties! i would stay for 1 hour minimum as the cats are still cats and need to get used to you. at first you have to just sit and chill out cause the cats aren’t gonna just run up to you. i recommend feeding them, you can buy snacks for them for 300 yen. if you are bringing others everyone must be 12 or older and if they’re 12-15 you NEED passport! i brought my younger brother and he had fun, but don’t bring children here, the cats like to be pet but they’re still animals and are so precious and need to be respected. the workers are very sweet and helpful, they have little books with all the cats names and tell you which ones can be fed and not. i would come back! 10/10 experience

If you love cats like I do, this place is a 'must' to visit. It's such a relaxed and happy environment. The cats look well cared for. They're very friendly ..and love having their pictures taken. Spend half an hour or more, you'll come away feeling content

We visited this Cafe while staying at the Ibis Shinjuku as this cafe was only a short walk from our hotel. It was hard to fit it since it is on the 6th floor. We went there as I thought my friend would be missing her 2 cats. We were there for about 40 minutes and spent 800 yen each. There are two floors of cats. The cats on the top floor are less social than the cats that are located on the lower floor. We did not buy any snacks for the cats and I did not pet any of them as the staff in the cafe warned us to be careful as some of the cats could scratch or bite. There were some young men that were really enjoying and playing with the more social cats on the lower level. I realized that these cafes probably exist as people in Japan can't have pets as easily as we do at home. My friend did not enjoy the visit as much as I thought she would as she told me they were not her cats.

Went with my 18 y/o daughter on our visit to Tokyo, and as we both love cats we knew a visit to a cat cafe was going to be on our list. This place had good reviews overall, and it definitely met our expectations. We went on a drizzly afternoon in June, and for the first 45 minutes it was very quiet and peaceful and there were only 2 or 3 others there. The cats were chilling, and we were happy just to look at them and pet a few of them. We have 3 cats at home so of course we know that they like to rest a lot of the time. The downstairs area was nice, and there were a couple of cats there who were very sociable and who wanted to sit on our laps. we did not buy any food or try to play with any of them. as we were leaving there was a rather loud young woman who decided to have a noisy face time conversation with a friend back home, showing her video of the cats and talking about their trip thus far. Please don't do this when you visit! ;-) The cats seemed happy and not stressed out. I believe this place does not allow little children, which i think is wise. we went to another cat cafe later in the week on a whim, and it was crowded and there were some very active children doing what children often do in their excitement to play with an animal. This was a more peaceful environment, at least at the time we were there.

I have been to the Cat Cafe in San Diego, California and they have about 10 adoptable cats at a time. On a special Sunday night they did cat yoga which was great fun. The cats loved to get on the mat and participate on their own. This place seemed to have many more cats yet it didn't seem as though they were overcrowded as it was a big place. The staff seemed on top of it and the cats looked ok for the most part. There were a couple wearing bandanas that had medical issues and could not be fed. Had to wash hands and remove shoes and wear slippers. These cats are just living here and not up for adoption. I think Cat Cafes are popular here because many people do not have cats as pets maybe due to apartment restrictions or space problems so they come here to have the "Pet" experience. I had an iced matcha soy latte and just hung out for awhile to get the feel of the place and for the most part the cats were quite friendly and active. Many different breeds. It didn't seem like a bad place so I hope I am right on that.
