No cats, no life
If you're crazy about cats like me, this will be a purrrfect tour for you! We visit Tokyo's old town, Yanaka, where you can see amazing selections of cat items, such as stationaries, bags, tableware, etc (and if you're lucky, you can see cats, too). Be careful not to buy too much! Then we visit Shibuya's cat cafe to be mesmerized by cats in Tokyo. Even if you don't speak Japanese, don't worry! The cats do understand English because they always have a lot of non-Japanese visitors.
As a photographer, I'll capture all your precious moments. Also, I'll give you some tips on how to take good cat photos.
Warning: You can NOT take the cats home even if you fall in love with them.
The world's happiest guide, Kumi, will meet you at your hotel lobby and take you to cat paradise in Tokyo!
