Even among Tokyo's animal cafes, Usagi no Ehon (Rabbit Picturebook) pushes the twee end of the scale, with dozens of children's picture books lining the walls, shelves filled with bunny-themed knick-knacks and plush toys, and a decor heavily influenced by late-period Peter Rabbit. It's the smaller of Shimo-Kitazawa's two rabbit cafes, and most seating is on the floor at miniature tables in a common play area, where a few rabbits at a time roam free.

There are also a couple of fenced-in pen areas that you can step into for more one-on-one rabbit time, and other rabbits you can visit in their cages. When you arrive you're issued a small dish of rabbit treats which you can dispense as you see fit. Around seven rabbits are on active duty, although not all are running around at any given time.
