Welcome to Harajuku’s MoCHA cat café. Inside you will find cats. Some are white, some are orange, some are striped. They are all adorable.
Cat cafés aren’t exactly new – they’ve been around since at least 2015 and have inspired more adventurous offshoots, like owl cafés – but the original genius concept continues to capture our attention.

In this particular outpost in Tokyo’s Harajuku neighborhood, you enter a narrow building overlooking the entrance to the Meiji Shrine, ascend a few floors, and enter a cramped hallway, where you must remove your shoes. There’s a minimum half an hour stay with a 600 yen ($6) entrance fee at the café – just enough time to enjoy a beverage and play with a borrowed pet.
