Welcome to Neko Café TiME
Experience a cat café while in Japan!
Visit us after Fushimi Inari shrine in Kyoto. Come and cuddle with our cats, watch them play or see them basking in the sun!
While in Japan, enjoy a unique experience together with 12 lovely cats!
Store Manager Bob leads his pack of 12 cute cats, each with their own personality. You will have plenty of fun playing with the energetic younger ones like Totoro or Goma. Or, why don't you just sit and relax while petting a charming cutie like Kinako or Azuki?
We offer canned drinks like coffee or tea or a variety of Japanese flavors. There's also ice cream, if you would rather have that. Explore our bookshelf with manga and magazines in both English and Japanese when you just want to take a break from the crowds outside.
Since we're on the second floor, we have a great view of the crowds flocking to Fushimi Inari shrine on the street below and also the river which is lined with sakura trees.
Low sofas and counter seats ensure the cats are always in focus. From our cat walk lining the walls, the cats can observe the human visitors from above. Our bookshelf with mangas and magazines can be accessed from both sides and there is plenty of cat toys you can pick up as well.
So cats and humans can interact nicely
Meet our Staff
Cute, cuddly and happy cats are waiting for you!
Bob ♂Store Manager
He is kind and caring and makes sure all cats are happy. He will often greet guests at the door.
Mikan ♀Calico Cat
She adores Bob and likes to be near him. She can be a bit scared sometimes but has no problem if she trusts you.
Momo is a cross Himalayan-Persian breed and our very own grumpy cat! She definitely comes out of hiding if there's food nearby.
Kinako thinks she's prettier than the rest. She also prefers to hang out with guests in the waiting room rather than with other felines.

Regarding the gifts and souvenirs at our shop
The illustrations are made by the talented Shimada Neko and you can get her creations as framed artworks, clear files or post cards. The handmade cat goods are made by one of our staff. Some of the proceeds from our souvenirs go to supporting cat shelters in the Kyoto area.
