Geek It! Otaku Out and About: Harajyuku Zoo Land


In Western countries, it is common for travellers to visit botanic gardens and zoos. In Japan, travellers prefer to see and do something else — visiting animal cafes.

As an outsider, animal cafes are one of Japan’s best assets. Cat cafes, owl cafes, otter cafes, hedgehog cafes — Japan probably has a cafe for every unique Japanese pet you can think of.


While most animal cafes are solely dedicated to one animal, we happened to stumble across a cafe that features more than one animal. Situated in the heart of chaotic Harajuku, the HARAJYUKU ZOO LAND is a zoo-cafe that features a capybara, a fox, meerkats, ferrets, and more!


Decked in fluro pink and unique holding pens for each type of animal, this is an animal cafe that is worth your money for half an hour. During this time, you get the chance to get up close and personal with the animals by feeding and petting them.

Harajyuku Zoo Land is a fun retreat from all the shopping and sight-seeing in Harajuku. If you want to visit this cafe, check out the details below:
