…continued from Ikebukuro.
Next up in Ikebukuro was Cat’s House Nekobukuro. What in Sam Hill is that, you might ask? Well, it’s essentially a cat petting zoo and pet store atop the Tokyu Hands department store. JC and I both like cats, so coming here was a refreshing change from the typical tourist attraction. You pay 1,000 yen for a couple and you can spend as long as you want inside. There are scratching posts everywhere and little tunnels, nooks, and crannies for the kitties to crawl through. Staff members help to coax out the shyer cats, and will even get the cats to pose for pictures. Meow!
