As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I was off to Japan. Now, having been there and returned home, I have come to appreciate how beautiful a country it is. It's a land that blends together history and ancient culture with modern technological wonders. I would like to share with my readers my top five things to see in Tokyo.
If you're a cat lover much like me then this is a place worth a visit. Mocha Cat Cafe is one of many cafe's of this type all over Japan. Situated on the 4th floor of a tall building close to the station and Meiji temple entrance, its an experience that although enjoyable can prove to be pricey. For the price of between 500-600 yen per person, you get a drink and ten minutes in the cafe. You also pay an additional price for every ten minutes after that. There are a long list of rules that the staff go through with you before you go in - don't feed the cats, don't chase them, don't pick them up etc. You also have to take off your shoes and wear slippers inside. Once inside there were about a dozen cats lounging around that let you sit by them and stroke them - very soothing but not really something I would do for a long time (especially at the cost).
