Added to list of things to do in Japan: visit a cat cafe… c’mon! this is adorable! It’d be like if they served coffee at the cat house at the Humane Society, only more comfortable.
Love the intro to the story in the Christian Science Monitor*:
Just around the corner from the pulsing blare and brightness of the Akihabara electronics and anime district, cafe Neko JaLaLa is an oasis of calm. Past the brass, paw-handled door to the inner sanctum, denizens loll on the thick carpet, drape over couches, and almost purr with pleasure in the quiet atmosphere.
And that’s just the humans.
The article goes on to explain that playing with cats, or even just watching them, is a great stress reliever. Apparently the cafes are kept quite clean, too, so it sounds great.
