“Nekonojikan”(meaning“cats’time”) is Japan’s first cat cafe. It opened in 2004. The cafe is located in the Tenjinbashisuji Shotengai in Osaka, which is the longest shopping arcade in Japan.
This is a cafe for cat-lovers. The setting is unique. Inside, the cafe is just like a regular Japanese house. There is a tatami-mat room and a kitchen next to it. The room is very relaxing. Some cats sleep in their beds while others walk around and play with the guests. You can read books, work on your computer or spend a relaxing quiet time with the lovely cats. Just remember, don’t chase or disturb them.
This cafe does not serve food to its human guests. You can only enjoy the drink in the kitchen area but not in the tatami room.
