In this small cafe with a capacity of 10 people, there are usually more than 15 cats inside, with whom you can interact with freely. It’s a place that’s so therapeutic that you won’t be able to help loving cats. It’s pretty cool that you can search for your favorite cat if you visit several times!

Because of this, it is gathering support from train enthusiasts as “the cafe that’s the closest to trains in the world”. In addition, it operates as a cafe during the day, but at night it becomes a full blown bar offering Japanese rice wine, so it is perfectly suited to those who want to enjoy Japanese rice wine.

However, its charm lies in that it’s a calming space that you can slip back into the nostalgic retro atmosphere of the Showa period when you visit. When you’re tired of exploring Akihabara, it’s a place that’s perfect to take a break; as well as a maid cafe that’s suitable for work, study or reading. Moreover, as it has free wifi, it’s recommended for people who come to Japan for a holiday.Cat Cafe ~Neko JaLaLa~ Credit: Dempa Jack Akihabara Virtual DateThe time at which the cats are most active is from around 11am til 2pm, and from 6pm til closing time, so if you wanna have lots of fun it’s recommended that you visit in those hours.N3331last_img read more
