“Taking a break from the usual cats, rabbits and owls, I visited a very nice dog café recently near Yoyogi Park in Tokyo.”

800-yoyogi-dogheart2
“Usually in Japan a ‘Dog Café’ is someplace you can bring your own dog, and often you can order from a special menu for dogs.”

800-yoyogi-dogheart3
“‘Dog Heart From Aquamarine,'” the place I visited, is more like a regular animal café – you can play with the dogs there, or rent a dog for the afternoon and take it out for a walk in the nearby park.”

“It’s very good for stress relief.”

Now, it’s not a Café per sé, but the overwhelming Kitteh Vibe pushes this over the top. Like everything else over there.

The BuzzFeed article says Hello Kitty Chinese Cuisine opened just two months ago.

C.O. Cat Owl Café World Tour: Tokyo

Yesterday we visited a Cat Café in Northern Toyko- today, we stay in The Big T for a trip to an Owl Café; not our first rodeo when it comes to these, either. Our narrator today is Stu, and as you can tell, he’s just a bit geeked up to be there. It’s called “Forest Of Owl; Healing & Adventure With The Owl Of The Good Luck.”

Well, of course it is. After all: #TheFutureIsOwls. [P.S. The entire country of Japan has now been inducted into the C.O. Hall of Fame. All of it, from Hokkaido to Okinawa. They DOMINATE the QTE. FYI. -Ed.]

[*Note: We know this place exists, but I swear I can’t find a thing about it online. Google, Bing, nothing. If you do, drop us a line! (Our When You Go™ box looks a bit lonely.)

UPDATE! We woke Stu up in Tokyo and got the info! Good grief do I love me some Twitter.

C.O. Cat Café World Tour: Northern Tokyo

We continue our Japan-centric (as if you hadn’t guessed) C.O. Cat Café World Tour with a stop in Northern Tokyo. This spot is called, er, “Hand of the Cat.” No, we don’t know why. Japan-based correspondent Robb S. wrote up his visit for his website, and you can find his report here.
