A friendly cat jumped on my back. At that time, the staff told me that I should praise enough the cat patting and saying “Good job! Good job!”

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 Branch, 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.

Photos were taken in 2014. Admission is as of February 2021.
