¤Data
You can get a milk
snake to go with
your iced coffee and
cake at Tokyo Snake
Center! As you en-
ter, you'll find a
dozen colorful
snakes in clear
Perspex cases at the
door. These are the
"attendant" snakes
and you get to
choose one snake in
a box to have as
your table compan-
ion. The waiter then
gives you a quick
lesson in snake
etiquette and cafe
rules (available in
Japanese and Eng-
lish), and leads you
to your table.

We chose a beautiful
milk snake with
alternating bands of
red, black and yel-
low. A nonvenomous
variety of king
snake, it proved an
entertaining compan-
ion, feverishly
digging under the
plastic grass in its
box like a plucky
RAF officer trying
to escape from Sta-
lag 13.

The cafe interior is
very swish with
clinical white walls
and gleaming metal
surfaces, glossy
fashion-mag posters
of snakes and
expensive-looking
snakeskin bags and
accessories. Even
the pipes are clad
in snakeskin-pat-
terned wallpaper.
It's more like a
luxury-brand store
than animal cafe.
