Cat Travel: Neko Maru Cat Cafe – ??????Ueno Part 1

Hi everyone,

As part of our cat cafe visit series we also went to a cat cafe in Ueno called Neko Maru.

This cafe was smaller than some of the others that we have been too but all the cats have been adopted from rescue places and picked up as strays so they certainly earned bonus points for that! 😀 Not to mention that they also help re-home cats!

When we first came in we were greeted by this cute sleeping kitty on their large scratch tree.


You can tell how relaxed and secure the local residents feel in here… 🙂

The cafe also had many japanese Manga to choose from should you prefer to read a book while waiting on one of the locals to jump on you!!!

I am sure Mochi (Mochi is a generally white bashed rice sweet which is why they must have chosen the name for this cutie) must have been trained to immediately jump on laps of unsuspecting tourists considering the longer you stay the more you pay in this cafe haha. 😉

Of course this little white one was very cute until the suckling began. LOL

He seems to have thought that we were his mummy. :O Certainly sweet and adorable but slightly drenched T-shirt guaranteed! LOL

The WALL OF FAME! All of their local residents and ex-residents were listed on there to help tourists identify who they are seeing. 🙂
