Cat Cafe Calico Shinjuku, Shinjuku

3.4
#3 of 130 in Fun & Games in Tokyo
Entertainment Center Fun & Games
Meet the cuddly residents of Cat Cafe Calico Shinjuku, a place to interact with a whole host of cats. The idea for a cat cafe sprang from the fact that many meeting places and homes in Japan don't allow pets, so cafes like this seek to offer apartment-dwelling locals a place to hang out with furry felines. With the main room decked out with cat-friendly contraptions and a menu of treats to order (for humans and cats), the space provides the ideal environment to get to know each cat. Children under the age of 12 are not allowed into the cafe, and all visitors up to the age of 15 must be accompanied by an adult.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.

  • 1200yen for 1hr. It was ok. Can be relaxing with the right attitude. Just go to chill with cats, nothing more.
  • Not the prettiest cat cafe around but if you need a cat to love, stop by. Kinda smells and the cats are often stressed. At least it wasn't swarming with people when we went.
  • Good ambience. Thoroughly enjoyable for Cat lovers. Time goes in a jiffy.
  • Biggest cat Cafe in Shinjuku. Lots of friendly cats and reasonable price, be sure to take the coupon for the exit of the building. U will got a free drink!!
  • The staff were perfectly polite, the cats were well behaved (and so beautiful), and the food was as good as you would expect it to be at a cafe that's more about gimmick than actual food. With that said it was a little dirty and it seems like their method of controlling how much food customers can give is innefective as many of the cats were over weight or had illnesses related to being overweight. Also the space seemed to be too small for the number of cats they had. Especially once you threw people in to the mix you could see that some cats were completed retreated and uncomfortable or exhausted. They have made efforts to create more spaces for the cats but I feel like a little more room might create a more comfortable atmosphere for them. It would be good if more of the spaces for the cats were spaces people can't reach but can see so the cats can take a break.
