Author's experience
When I went to other cat cafes that were small rooms, most of the cats were sleeping or looked sleepy in some cases. But at the Calico Shinjuku きゃりこ 新宿 it is easier to meet young and lively cats because of the large number and different types of cats in the cafe.

The cafe room is clean and tidy. The fact that the cafe is spread between two floors provides for a spacious and relaxing atmosphere.
A good point was the knowledgeable staff. They taught me the different personality of the cats and how to play with them.

The nearest station is Shinjuku 新宿 Station.
