T-Cat: Yokohama Nihon-Odori

Open since February 2017, T-Cat is a friendly rescue-cat cafe with around fifteen resident cats, give or take. There were a lot of younger cats when we visited, and they were especially playful and athletic when the staff demonstrated the use of various fishing-pole cat toys. There are also a number of black cats here, wearing bandanas of different colors so that they're easier to tell apart.

Unlike most cat cafes, the playroom here is separate from the cafe area, so you can enjoy your coffee or tea without worrying about spillage. Drinks are charged separately from admission, and are optional. Also unlike most places, you can order beer or other alcoholic beverages, from 5pm. You can even bring your own food (for yourself, not for the cats).
