Interesting Harajuku Restaurants: Mameshiba Cafe By Lukas


Shiba Inus are one of my favorite kinds of dogs, and I’ve wanted a dog for many years now, but it’s very difficult to own a dog in Tokyo because of the lack of space and apartment restrictions. Therefore, I was really excited to find a place in Tokyo where I could relax and hang out with dogs. Mameshiba Cafe in Harajuku was a completely different and unique experience from the cafes in the US. This is because in the US, there are many rules limiting pets in restaurants and cafes related to concerns about food safety.


It cost about ¥1500 for a time limited 30 minute course, but it was completely worth it to play with such cheerful and energetic puppies. There were many dog toys scattered around the tatami mat floor, which I found were the best way of keeping the dog’s attention just long enough to snap a few photos.

The 30 minutes passed in the blink of an eye but, it was a great experience and I would definitely recommend this cafe to any animal lover or adventure seeker.
