Mocha: Tokyo Harajuku

With its prime location overlooking JR Harajuku station, this newest branch of the Mocha cafe chain packs in the crowds, including a good number of overseas tourists. The playroom is fairly compact, but there's plenty of comfortable seating and a fantastic panoramic view looking out over Yoyogi Park.

You can drop in for a quick ten-minute visit if you like, or stay awhile longer and opt for the "free drink" plan and have all the coffee or tea you like for just Y350. We found late weekday afternoons to be a good time to visit - the crowds thin out, and the sixteen resident cats are relatively active, perhaps in anticipation of dinnertime.
