Visiting a Japanese Cat Cafe in Tokyo! 😺

In this video we visit a Japanese cat cafe in Tokyo. If you’ve been following this channel for a while, you’ve probably noticed a bit of a cat cafe trend – if a city has a cat cafe, we’re there!

Of course when we came to Japan, we couldn’t resist visiting and seeing how the cat cafes compare to others we’ve been to. And in case you’re counting, we’ve now been to cat cafes in Korea, Malaysia, Thailand, Germany, Ukraine, and even Canada.

For this outing, we decided to visit a cat cafe in Ikebukuro called “Cat Cafe MoCHA”. They have multiple locations across Tokyo, and while we didn’t visit them all, we were wowed by the size of the one in Ikebukuro. It was very spacious and the cats had plenty of space to roam.

The cafe itself had a section for napping, studying, playing board games, playing computer games and just general lounging. It was very quiet inside with soft music playing in the background (hence why we’re whispering in this video!), but it was a pretty cool environment and a fun activity for a rainy day in Tokyo.

One of the things you can do at Cat Cafe MoCHA is feed the cats, so we bought some food for them. We were expecting we’d get some kibbles or wet cat food, but it was quite the event; we got given aprons, a mat for the cats to eat on, and even a spoon to feed them one by one. It was a really fun experience – oh, Japan!

My wife and I have been to a rabbit café called “Rabito Café” in Bangkok but not a cat version. Animal cafes are fun and quite relaxing. Loved watching you guys enjoy the experience.
