Nekobukuro

, or "Cat's House", is part of the Ikebukuro Tokyu Hands store, located on the eighth floor. For the price of admission (¥1000 for an hour with the cats, as of April 12, 2010), customers can interact and play with the 20 or so cats running free around Nekobukuro at any given time.

Nekobukuro is a play on the Japanese word for cat, neko and the location Ikebukuro

Because many apartments will not allow pets, and some Tokyo residents feel their work schedule may not be compatible with the ownership of an animal, Nekobukuro is viewed as an alternative to pet ownership while still maintaining pet interaction.

List of some of the cats at Nekobukuro

  • Norwegian Forest Cat
  • Maine Coon
  • Siamese (cat)
  • Russian Blue
  • Scottish Fold
  • Persian (cat)

You can buy almost anything in here! The stationary floor is fantastic, if you see a sticker in there you love check out the luggage/travel floor -they may have an XL version of that same sticker ????

最近ようやく池袋ではLoftよりハンズが最強だと気づき始めた。主に文具を見ることが多いけどLoftより品揃えが豊富だけど、駅から離れているせいか、Loftより空いてる!
