If you are a big fan of warm drinks, cozy atmospheres, and cats, then cat cafes in Japan are for you! With over 60 cafes to visit, and counting, we explored a few to give you the details of what to expect.

Most cat cafes in Japan are easy to find! They often have big signage, cat-themed elevator signs, and a collection of photos of their resident cats to lure you in. We didn't bother looking for cat cafes because we would naturally stumble upon them during our visits to Japan, and they offered great opportunities to rest after tons of walking.

Most cat cafes required you to read their cat safety rules, put your belongings into a locker, and wear special slippers to keep dirt from outside from contaminating the cats' home.

 Once inside, you can choose how much time you want to play with the kitty (typically pay by the half or full hour), look at the resident cat picture album, read a comic book, draw, or have a drink.

Of course, we included a drawing of our own cat, Tama. Midori wasn't yet part of our family, otherwise we would have included her in the book too.

All of the cat cafes usually had huge rooms to house multiple cats, complete with plenty of toys, beds, food, cat scratchers, litter boxes, etc. Some cat cafes were multiple levels and had special quiet rooms to make sure cats could find a quiet space, if needed.

And of course there are plenty of opportunities to meet some beautiful cats.

Every cat cafe seemed to be clean, spacious, and have really friendly staff that took good care of their cats' health and well being. They all had a different theme and selection of felines to play with too. If you ever want to experience cat cafe culture in the land where it all started, I would definitely recommend it!
