Review :
  • One of my favourite cafe, even though it is small, but the kittens are more playful and approachable.
  • Ekoneko is currently has 20 rescued cats.
  • This place is NOT stink AT ALL, as any other cat cafes. Sometimes you can smell the cat pee.
  • The staff are so helpful.
  • Not many tourists who come to this place, it seems very local place. So be prepared with simple Japanese language to communicate with the staff.
  • Overall, i like this place.

Kafe Kucing Ekoneko

Adalah : Tempat untuk bersantai, dengan banyak kucing kucing. Di cafe ini hanya tersedia minuman dari vending machine. Kamu boleh bermain dengan kucing kalau mereka tidak sedang tidur. Yang beda dari kafe kucing yang lainnya adalah kafe Ekoneko ini kucingnya berasal dari kucing liar jalanan. Kalau kamu tinggal di Jepang dan mau mengadopsi kucing dari ekoneko ini, silahkan bertanya kepada staff nya.
Jam buka : 12 siang – 10 malam (pesan terakhir jam 9:00 malam).  Buka setiap hari.
Cara pergi :

Pergi ke stasiun Ekoda di jalur Seibu Ikebukuro, dan keluar dari pintu Selatan (South Exit), di sebelah kanan ada gang kecil. Masuk ke gang itu, jalan terus kira kira 1 menit di sebelah kiri pasti terlihat kafe Ekoneko.

Lokasi : 1-73-1 Asahigaoka, Nerima-ku, Tokyo-to, 176-0012
Pendapat saya :
  • Kafe kucing yang saya suka, meskipun kecil, tapi kucingnya mudah didekati dan anak-anak kucingnya masih aktiv.
  • Saat ini Ekoneko mempunyai 20 ekor kucing yang di selamatkan.
  • Di kafe Ekoneko sama sekali tidak ada bau kencing kucing. Tidak seperti kafe kucing yang lainnya kadang agak bau.
  • Staffnya sangat ramah dalam melayani pengunjung.
  • Tidak banyak turis yang datang ke kafe ini, mungkin lokasi nya agak jauh dari keramaian. Jadi, bersiap-siap untuk berbicara bahasa Jepang untuk berkomunikasi dengan staff nya.
  • Secara keseluruhan, saya suka dengan kafe ini.
