Neko Cafe Aikyatto is a cat cafe in downtown Sendai outside Hiroseidori Exit 1. The cafe is open 11am-8pm on weekdays, 10am-8pm on Saturdays, and 10am-9pm on Sundays and holidays. You can enjoy drinks, light snacks such as crackers, and of course all the cuteness you can squeeze into a 30 or 60 minute course. All is included in the set price. You are allowed to view, pet, and play with the cats. Make sure to bring your cameras to catch the magic, but remember no flash photography! This cat cafe features carpeted floors and a few couches, making spending a long leisurely time easy. Cats are fed at 11am and 7pm, so you can expect them to be a little more active at that time.
