Cats from Himeji {Japan}

black cat café

Welcome to Nekobiyaka, the only existing cat café dedicated to black cats

Situated in Himeji, Japan, Nekobiyaka started like any other cat café, hosting an array of different cat breeds and colors. They went through a grand renewal and re-opened as a black cat specialty café. For an hourly fee of Y1000, you can enjoy a drink while getting to know Nekobiyaka's black felines. 

Since it's hard to tell the black cats apart, they all wear different colored bandanas, and their names incorporate each color.

  10. If Mom ever comes into any money, she wants to open a sanctuary for black cats. These black kitties are so gorgeous. Mom would love to meet them in person. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
