Are you a cat cafe fan looking for a new animal cafe experience?
Your next step should be to visit a rabbit cafe. Located in Shimo-Kitazawa, a hip town in Tokyo with heaps of funky cafes and restaurants, Usagi Cafe Ohisama is a must visit for those into kawaii culture.
What is a Rabbit Cafe?
A rabbit cafe is a cafe where you can hang out with rabbits and play with them while enjoying your tea, for example. It’s not meant for people who keep rabbits as pets to bring those along, but rather for those who would like to pet rabbits and usually don’t have a chance to – and that in a cozy cafe atmosphere.

At Usagi Cafe Ohisama you can select a rabbit or two from their little homes, then you can take them to your table, some comfy sofas, or just feed them on tatami mats.
I* have been to a few cat cafes and theme cafes, but the rabbit cafe was the best. Much more quiet and fun than other such cafes!
There are plenty of clothes to try out and even rabbit themed meals.
Customers could even buy a costume for their chosen little rabbit and take him or her off to the park.
How could you not have fun dressing up a rabbit in a kimono?
The cafe is decorated with random clothes and toys for you to try out. Pretty much everything is rabbit related and guests can spend time checking out the cute photo albums of rabbits in different cute costumes, poses and locations.
Should You Visit a Rabbit Cafe in Tokyo?
Usagi Cafe Ohisama is great if you like theme cafes or animal cafes, and especially if your kids come along as well. It has a relaxed atmosphere, so it is also fun with friends or on a date. The prices are a little expensive, but it is a rather unique experience, and you will certainly want to show your friends all the super cute photos that you’ll take.
Furthermore it’s also a good alternative for all those of you who love rabbits, but who cannot make it all the way to “Rabbit Island” (Hiroshima).

There are a few other rabbit cafes being set up in Japan, and Shimo Kitazawa also has a cat cafe if you want to do that as well.
Unfortunately this café has closed down and cannot be visited any longer.
