This business needs to update their website to include accurate hours or hire people that actually open the Cafe on time. An utter waste of time. Building smelled bad. Yeah lined street.

Before you enter the cafe they give u a 2 page list of "don't dos" . Instead, they would rather say " just watch the cats from a distance, nothing else is allowed". The unleashed cats can be petted only if they come to you...More

Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.
