Hedgehog Cafe

Hedgehog Cafe Harry in Harajuku, Tokyo, is a great spot where you can meet these cute little hedgehogs, play with them and even feed them too. For lovers of cute little animals, Hedgehog Cafe Harry is the place to be! Patrons get to sit around small containers that hold the little creatures that look like toys. This allows visitors a private audience with their very own set of hedgehogs for the duration of the visit. They are African Pygmy Hedgehogs, aged between two to five months and they can fit comfortably into your hands. After purchasing an admission ticket from a vending machine and sanitising your hands, you will be shown to a seat with the hedgehogs in front of you. Staff at Hedgehog Cafe Harry provide a short briefing on the dos and don’ts of handling the hedgehogs, and then you can play with them. While you can handle the hedgehogs with bare hands, gloves are also provided for those who wish to use them. Hedgehog Cafe Harry also functions as a pet shop and you can bring a hedgehog home for around 50,000 yen.
