Japan has many cat cafes, maid cafes and even owl cafes. But have you heard of a cat cafe train? Nope, we are not referring to cats riding on trains. We are talking about kittens roaming around trains that will melt your heart, waiting to jump into cat-loving arms.
Yoro Railway will be launching this cat cafe train on 10 September 2017. The cafe is part of a campaign to save kittens from being put to death, as it is also putting them up for adoption in the hopes of finding them forever homes.
In collaboration with Kitten Cafe Sanctuary, this cat cafe train allows you to get up close and personal with some adorable kittens. The train runs the 10-or-so kilometres between the Ogaki and Ikeno stations in Gifu prefecture, near Nagoya.
The fee of 3,000 yen (about S$37) includes a free one-day ticket on the Yoro Railway, a bento meal, mino ibi tea – a notable product from along the Yoro Railway – and Japanese sweets to go with the tea. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Kitten Cafe Sanctuary, who aims to protect cats and work towards zero killings.
Yoro Railway even makes sure that the cats on the train are not afraid of being in such a vehicle! Unfortunately, however, due to overwhelming response, seats are fully sold out. But this just probably means a good start to a great “meow” campaign!
