What's aCat Café?

Welcome to Neko Café TiME! We are a cat café, a phenomenon indigenous to Japan! We wanted to create space for cats without a home and for people from homes without cats. Here you can sip on a drink or have an ice cream; but most people go straight for the cats. Stroke a sleepy feline, play with the more energetic ones or snap photos of them basking in the sun. The staff knows all about the cats so ask away if you have any questions!

"Compact but cozy, cats are friendly and I'd love to spend an entire summer afternoon reading, eating ice cream and spending time with all the cuties here! The owner is super nice and seems to be a genuine cat lover so all of them are treated very well here. Would definitely recommend!"

Anthony Killackey

"Amazing experience. We stopped after visiting the Fushimi Inari shrine to relax and had a wonderful time. The owner is exceptionally passionate about taking care of her Neko and the café is spotless. 700 yen includes a drink or ice cream with 20 minutes of time to relax with cats. The 13 cats each had unique personalities and were a joy to be around. Highly recommend coming here!"

ZayneZ

"This feline venue provided a welcomed respite from the bustling crowds outside journeying to and fro Fushimi Inari-taisha. It was nap time as most of the cats were slumbering, including Bob AKA Store Manager, who resembled one of our cats back home. But nonetheless, it was a pleasant sanity break in that serene setting."
