One of the many weird and wonderful Japan experiences is the pet café. As most apartments in Japan do not allow animals, people are unable to have pets. People who just cannot live without that too cute pink nose snuggle snuggle time with their pet of choice have the option of visiting a pet café, where for a set fee you can get something to eat and drink, and play with a cat, dog, or rabbit until you get bored or run out of money.
About ten minutes from Hisayaodori Station, you will find a cool little spot called the Usagi-To Cafe in Nagoya; a rabbit-themed cafe near Takaoka (on the red line) or Hisyaodori Stations (on the red or purple lines) that is filled with decorations, toys, and food; mostly rabbit shaped. It seems a bit odd to munch on rabbit shaped snacks while snuggling with Bugs Bunny, but the café does not actually serve real rabbit so I might just be being oversensitive again.
If you are worried about your own, in house rabbit’s lack of bunny socialization skills, you can also bring your own rabbit in to play with the house rabbits.
The cost of the café is 900 yen to get in, and then 100 yen per minute spent with the bunnies. Check out the video below for a sneak peak, and see the map below that if you are interested in dropping in for a visit. No carrots required, but if you happen to bring one, I am guessing the rabbits won’t mind.
