猫だ！カフェ — In Japanese, this says “Neko da! Cafe”, or literally “It’s a Cat! Cafe” but, the cafe is actually called “Nyanda Cafe”, which is a play on words of “Nanda” (meaning ”What?”) and “Nyan” which is the sound a cat makes. So, it’s kind of like, “Whaaat? A cat cafe!?” This cat cafe is located in Odaiba and formerly operated as Cats Livin. We’ve been told that it’s the largest cat cafe in Tokyo, as it is home to over 40 cats.
As you can see on the map, the cafe is very large and is divided into separate areas. Not all of the cats are out at once. Some stay behind glass doors resting, while the others wander and lounge around.
You’ll find them sleeping lazily everywhere and anywhere. We thought this cat in a box was especially cute.
It costs 1,200 yen per adult to enter the cafe, which seems a bit expensive but you actually get 1 hour of time with the cats (compared to 15-30 minutes) plus one drink is included in the price, so it’s actually not bad.
This little guy was one of my favorites, but he didn’t really enjoy being touched. He actually pushed my hand away when I tried to pet him, so I left him alone after taking his picture.
I really wanted to play with this cat, but he was too busy sleeping. He had really long whiskers and eyebrow hairs!!!
I spent most of my time with this cat. He liked it when I pet him and he often posed for the camera. He must like the attention.
This cat was pretty funny. I called him Garfield because that’s who he reminded me of. Silly cat was hanging out on the table where you place your finished drinks. Silly kitty!
To get to Nyanda Cafe, you can take a train to either Odaibakaihinkoen Station or Tokyo Teleport Station and then walk just a short distance. The cafe is street level and is very hard to miss because of its pink cat exterior. They’re open from 11:00 am to 8:00 pm daily.
