Rabbit Cafes in Japan Let You Drink Coffee and Snuggle Bunnies

Aimed at the discerning rabbit devotee, Japanese rabbit cafes offer their customers the opportunity to play with actual rabbits. While some cafes keep them in cages and allow patrons to cuddle up after finishing their meals, other’s will let you snuggle up to a furry friend while you sip on your latte. There are even establishments that let patrons adopt these cute creatures.

Take for example, Ra.a.g.f (meaning “rabbit and grow fat”) — a café that opened up in the fashionable Jiyugaoka area in 2012, with a breeding center attached to it where customers can buy their own bunnies for pets. Just think, you go into a café for a coffee and come out with a pet bunny.

The popularity of these pet cafés in Japan is attributed to many people being unable to have pets in their urban homes and the fact that pets provide relaxing companionship in what may otherwise be a stressful and lonesome urban life.
