A Cat Cafe in Japan

Another one ticked off my list of cafes to visit. (*^^*)

A few weeks ago, I posted about my visit to an Owl Cafe. Today, I want to share pictures of my visit to the more popular animal cafe, a Cat Cafe!

Online research would lead you to a number (and by number, I mean a HUGE number) of cat cafes around Tokyo. I was the most interested in this one because of it's whimsical interior.

The shop's name is Temari no Ouchi (but it's interchangeable to Kinoko no Ouchi, and I think any other cats residing in the cafe, I believe!) which stands for Temari's House.

You'll have to shell out about 1200 yen but the awesome thing is, you don't have to pay by the hours, you can stay there for as long as you want! I thought that was awesome considering there was an hourly rate for both the Rabbit Cafe and Owl Cafe that I visited.

The downside is, there could be more patrons than residents (cats) at one time. We visited on a Wednesday and needless to say, it was a full house.

It was overall still a very relaxing experience, though. I enjoyed it thoroughly. Most of the cats were very well behaved. The cutest one was a Munchkin, but I don't think it likes being touched. It tried to nip me more than once. lol My favorite is Kinoko. I have a thing for animals with squished faces, I guess. Haha.

Enough with the talking, enjoy the cats! (*^^*)

 
The entrance is a really cute, door with a little door for cats. The little door doesn't really open but it's still so damn cute!

 
There are three cottages where you can stay in if you go with a large group.

 
Just doing what cats do best. :))

 
And of course, I take the first selfie of the day with a sleeping cat. :D

 
A random fuzzy, fluffy, furry thing.

 
This is Temari. The house master. She's probably one of the first cats in the facility.

 
Y U so cute?!
As you can see in the background, most guests are assigned to low tables around the cafe.

 
Kinoko doesn't seem too happy about our selfie but Emily and I certainly are. HAHAHA

 
There are two doors when entering the cafe and this is the door that leads you to ze cats. 

 
Japanese establishments and all the thought and detail they put into the interior never fail to baffle me. Just. Too. Cute.

 
This cat was forced to wear a Santa suit. But I'm sure it's not so bad plus it's super warm, too. XD

 
This is the little devil that tried to bite me. Don't get fooled by its doe eyes!!! XDDD
I'm sure she was just being playful and meant no harm.
Also notice the door behind her that says "Staff Only" and there's a little door again. So cute right?!

This one has "Don't bother me." written all over it's face.
All right boss, we're leaving! 

I really did enjoy Temari no Ouchi and would recommend it if you want to visit a cat cafe. It's in a town called Kichijoji in Tokyo and you'd have to go down Kichijoji Station and walk a little. It wasn't so hard to find, I think! Haha.(*^^*)

Anyway, see you all again next time.

Enjoy!

An Owl Cafe in Japan

Hi guys! How are you all doing? Today, I want to share my experience on visiting an owl cafe in Japan. ^ ^

A month ago, I visited a Rabbit Cafe, which I was unable to blog about (but if you wanna read about it, please tell me and I'll try to make a post). On my last day off, I visited an avian one. Haha! I love animals and owls are one of the creatures I've been fascinated about. I have a collection of owl items back in the Philippines but it didn't really grow so big.

It was a rainy, weekday afternoon on my visit so I was hoping there would be a few customers.

The shop we visited was in Shonan-dai in Kanagawa.

When you look through the window, you can already tons of owls waiting! Upon entering, you will be asked to wipe your hands with a wet tissue and apply medicated lotion on. We were asked to keep on our shoes.

We were the first customers of that day! I was so happy because I'm greedy and I want all the owls to myself. :P Eventually, around three groups of customers came in, though. :(

 
Hoot, hoot!

 After we were given instructions on how to properly handle the owls...


 
At first, we were hesitant to come so close...

But of course, that didn't last. :P

 
Not if super adorable faces like this look you straight in the eye! 

Then you'll just have so much fun going around and petting these wonderful creatures... and you'll be able to relax. 

There are many owls in the shop so you're bound to find your favorite!

 
There were small ones...

 
Mid-sized ones...

 
and HUGE ones, too! :)

 
This cute little owl was quite shy. :)


 
This one's named Ao. She's super, duper lovely!

 
Dokin seems to be a favorite in the shop though, because he's the smallest (plus super friendly too!)

 
But Usa's my favorite. She had rabbit-like ears (horns) and I'm guessing that's how she got her name.

 
In our short amount of time together, we've become best friends. lol

 
And had some really serious talks...(not really)

 
Here we are smiling for the camera! *^ ^* 

If I remember it right, we paid 1800 for an hour of stay. You can have an owl perch on your arm or shoulder for three minutes. If you want ANOTHER owl to perch on you, you need to pay an extra 300 yen. But of course, you can pet all of the owls to your heart's content. *^ ^*

Visiting an owl cafe was quite a unique experience. It was quite relaxing. I was kinda worried, though. I know owls are usually asleep in the day time and are awake at night... I was thinking that some of them might still be sleepy. Hahaha. ; 3 ;

Have you visited an owl cafe before? Tell me about it! Where was it and how was your experience? 

Until our next adventure!!!

Xoxo, Jona

Summer's Over, Autumn's Love! ^ ^

Hi everyone! Today I was showing my blog to one of my students when I realized I haven't written anything in a long while.

Honestly speaking, it came to a point when writing here became sort of a responsibility and a chore over something that I just enjoyed doing. So that may be the reason why I abandoned stopped writing. But there I was, looking at my blog posts and it hit me--I miss writing and sharing!

So here I am... I'm back!

There are so many things that have happened over the last few months that I don't know which ones I should be sharing. For now, I'll let the pictures do the talking!















And to more adventures!

Japan has been one of the best things to happen in my life. I've been doing so much stuff I never thought I'd do. It's just amazing! Sure, it's not all fun in here. The downs would also come with the ups, but nevertheless, I feel so blessed! (*^^*)

The Past Three Months

The past three months have been a blast. ^^ Here are some of the pictures I've taken during the last three months.

With Lyca, Marilou and Kosuke! :) Off to Disney Sea!

One of the most popular attractions there is the Tower of Terror!
I didn't really see anything when I got on it because I just kept my eyes shut. ^^;

Went to Tama Zoological Park! :'D

...to see koalas, mainly... but I actually loved the Lesser Panda so much more. XD

And I got my first-ever omikuji in Japan here! :D

My first kaiten sushi!

The enthralling beauty of Miyagase Dam... It's a fake lake. ; 3 ; It's at least artificially made!

I learned what komorebi is.

Met with Hiroaki and his fiance in Saitama.


Decided to preserve memories.

Made my own cup of noodles.

Met sea animals.

Experience rating: 10/10
