Bunny Cafe – Asakusa

Posted in Animals, Places, Shops by tokyobling on August 16, 2013

I have visited a couple of cat cafes and even a dog cafe or two here in Tokyo but this bunny cafe in Tokyo’s premier tourist district Asakusa was a new one for me! Ms. Bunny (apparently there is also a store in Roppongi) offers the cat cafe treatment, only with bunnies! They also offer bunny hotels (over night service if you need to go out of town and there’s no-one to look after your furry little friend for you), also the usual bunny spa specials, claw cutting, grooming etc. The whole building, all three floors have been converted and if you are an animal lover suffering from a lack of pets why not try something new and nuzzle up to a bunny while enjoying jazz music and some ice tea? I happened to pass a little late in the evening, but someday I’ll have to try it out. The price for a cafe visit is 500 yen per 30 minutes and there’s even an option to rent a bunny if you are feeling lonely over the weekend. There are markets for everything indeed! More information on their website here.

    A *bunny* cafe? Seriously? I just couchsurfed out in the San Juans and shared a home with a bunny for a few days. Cute, but kinda boring after a while. Just hops around and doesn’t really connect with humanoids the way cats and dogs do. Five bucks for 30 minutes is probably enough. (And I’ve never been to Asakusa, so next time for sure. Seems like there’s plenty of interesting non-touristy things to discover there, eh)

      Haha! Yes, I think Bunnies are even better suited to this sort of set up than cats! (^-^)

    I LOVED the cat cafes in Tokyo – the one in Odaiba allowed my 3 yr old son in (we have a cat, he’s good with them) and we both had so much fun. A Bunny Cafe will definitely be on my list next time we go.

      Oh, you are lucky! Most cat cafes don’t allow kids. Glad you enjoyed your visit there! (^-^)

    I had looked into a bunny cafe or two last time I was in Tokyo, but none of the pricing options really fit my tastes (then again, I haven’t been to any cat or dog cafes yet either, so I have nothing to compare it to!). 30 minutes for 500 yen seems just right–not too much to pay for a unique experience, and not too long that you get bored.

      I think the price varies depending on time/day. I can imagine peak hours being more expensive. Yes, it is a little pricy, but not too bad considering that a coffee and a piece of cake is even more expensive at Starbucks – and you get a fluffy animal to pet and take the edge of the stress accumulated during the week!

    I love animal cafes! Could you share the location of the dog cafes you have been to in Tokyo? I have been trying to find one but no luck… Thanks!

      Oh, I haven’t been to a dog cafe in a long time, but I remember there were one down somewhere near Futakotamagawa and Jiyugaoka about 8-10 years ago. I wonder if they are still around?

    Funny, my family and I are off to Asakusa next month. I hope I can find some interesting things like that when we go.

      Sounds great! Asakusa is one of the best places to start discovering Japan! (^-^)

    Can anyone help me with the street address of some of these? in English please?

      Hi! Put this into your Google and you should get map coordinates. Addresses are not very useful in Japan.
