On my trip to various places in Tokyo that I love, I went to Inokashira Park and the Mellow Cafe. Mellow Cafe is one of the many cat cafes in Tokyo, but likely one known by a few people, because the place is not very big and they don’t invest much into advertising. In fact, I’ve only been there with a friend, because we couldn’t find a place at the Starbucks opposite Mellow Cafe.
Mellow Cafe is an organic cafe, so the food they make is healthy. There are no more than six cats in the cafe and enough places where the cats can rest without being disturbed. Strict rules are in place for guests: Don’t wake up sleeping cats, don’t follow the cats and don’t pick up the cats.
Two of the cats are also infamous for sneaking up upon guests and trying to get a piece of cake. Of course the cats shouldn’t get any human food.
