Luxurious Cat Café Opens Its Doors in Nagoya

| Cafés , Animals

Adorable and entertaining as they may be, the majority of Japan’s cat cafés don’t really get such high marks for their interior design. But at cat café chain Mocha, customers can have it all: sipping drinks in the company of friendly felines as they relax and soak up the stylish atmosphere.

Mocha started out in Tokyo before expanding to Osaka and now it has opened its newest branch in Nagoya. Plans start at just ¥200 (US$1.80) for 10 minutes, comparable to what other cat cafés charge, meaning there’s no hefty premium to pay in order to enjoy Mocha’s luxurious appointments.

Drinks are also incredibly affordable, with all-you-can-drink soft drinks available for just ¥350. Special snacks to feed to the kitties are also on offer, priced at ¥500.

Because of its elegant ambiance, Mocha says customers can enjoy the café in a variety of ways. Aside from, obviously, playing with the cats, the chain’s website recommends using its cafés as a place to study, read, or work on professional projects, if you’re the sort of creative or telecommuting type who can work from anywhere as long as you’ve got a laptop.

Mocha’s Nagoya branch is located just a one-minute walk from Yabacho subway station, in the downtown Sakae entertainment district. If it turns out to be as successful as the chain’s Tokyo locations, we may see Mocha continue to expand across Japan, and maybe other entrepreneurs will adapt the concept into fancier brands of rabbit or hedgehog cafés.
