Japan Is A Magical Animal Heaven

So we already told you all about the amazing bunny island in Japan, and now we’re here with the latest animal haven in this zany country: a hedgehog cafe. The Harry Hedgehog Cafe is located just a few steps away from the Roppongi Station in Tokyo. It features dozens of adorable hedgies that you can pet, play with, and maybe even adopt.

Animal lovers of all ages can come interact with these spiky friends, but younger children do need to be accompanied by adults. Non-alcoholic drinks are available and you can bring your own, but there is no food available so don’t come hungry.

Understandably, this cafe gets pretty busy so reservations are required. A weekday session of 30 minutes will set you back 1190 yen, which is about $11. For weekend reservations, you get 30 minutes for 1404 yen, or about $13.

The owners of Harry’s are passionate about not only providing the chance to play with hedgehogs, but also educating the public about the right way to care for them. Their website details the various different types of hedgehogs, as well as tips on feeding, grooming, and even how to deal with different hedgie personalities.
