Ikebukuro: Cat cafe
Nekorobi: Ikebukuro
Ikebukuro / Cat cafe
Open 11am-10pm daily.
Average visit time: 30-60 minutes

One of Tokyo's oldest cat cafes, Nekorobi is a friendly, relaxed spot to hang out, although it's a lot better when it's not crowded, as there are only eleven resident cats to go around. You'll find the usual collection of cat toys, climbing trees, hideaway spots and cardboard boxes, along with low-rise, cat-level seats around the periphery of the room.

There's a free soft-drink machine, and a few games to play as well as Japanese-language manga and magazines. The staff are friendly, and very accustomed to foreign visitors. Feeding times are at 11am and 8:30pm.
