Protective cat cafe around Fushimi Inari Taisha Shrine in Kyoto
One day, my mother and I made pound cakes in order to give them to an acquaintance who managed a Japanese Tendon restaurant near Fushimi Inari Taisha. My mother went to meet him to give him some cakes, and I was taking a stroll around Fushimi Inari Taisha.
※ Tendon: a bowl of rice topped with tempura.
At that time, I found a cat cafe, so I entered this cafe. I asked a clerk if I could take photos of cats and she said yes, so I took several photos.
Maybe, the cafe I went to at that time is “Neko Cafe TiME” (It’s called “Bob’s House” now). When I went to this cafe, the cats were so lovely and I could touch them. Most cats seemed to be so relaxed as you can see in photos.
According to the website of this cafe,
“Even harder was to get them used to be around humans. Our staff put in a lot of love and effort into caring for the cats long before we could open the café.”Our Story – Bob’s House
At that time I couldn’t know, but I realized that the reason why cats were relaxed even though an unfamiliar person like me visited is that people who work there took many cares of cats with lots of affections and patience.
Now, this cafe was closed because of Covid-19. But they will start an E-commerce.
