Last week, I went to the Jalala Cat Café in Akihabara. It is one of many places in Japan where you can pay to spend time with cats, petting them, playing with them or even feeding them. This particular cat café has about a dozen cats of different breeds, all roaming around freely or napping. Very relaxing!
