Visit a cat cafe that evokes the atmosphere of Japan's Edo period (1603-1868). The cafe is situated right in front of Ryogoku Station and will be open for a limited time only, until August 31st.
With an interior design inspired by the ukiyo-e woodblock prints of the Edo period, interact with cats in a number of themed corners such as the cat tea house, the cat square, and even receive your fortune at the cat shrine. Visitors can take pictures together with new feline friends. Through the ukiyo-e prints, visitors can learn about the deep relationship between humans and cats which has continued from Japan's Edo period over 300 years ago. The Edo Cat Cafe offers one of a kind items, such as stickers and hand towels. After visiting the cafe, stop by Ryogoku Edo Noren, which has a selection of Edo style restaurants. This cafe also has a running campaign with the Sumida Hokusai Museum.
Many of these furry felines are rescue cats who are looking for a new home. Even if you can't adopt one, you can keep them company and bring warmth and happiness into their lives.
