Looking for a Different Kind of Animal Café in Tokyo? Try Hedgehogs!

Roppongi Other Sightseeing

Animal cafés of all kinds are trendy in Tokyo. Many Japanese people work long hours, and it can be difficult to care for a pet when you come home tired after a long day on the job. Pet cafés allow Japanese people to relieve stress and play with a cute animal without taking on the burden of day-to-day care. Also, some people live in small apartments in high-rise buildings. These living conditions make it difficult for Japanese people to care for a pet (if they are allowed in the building at all). Looking to spend time with the cutest animals Tokyo has to offer? Then stop by the Hedgehog Café and Pet Store Harry at their Roppongi or Harajuku locations! The café specializes in hedgehogs, for petting, playing, and even adopting.
