The scrapbook introducing Nyantsume's twenty resident cats is unusually detailed - not only do you learn each cat's breed and birthday, but English-language descriptions like "sensitive," "innocent" and "narcissist" give you some insight into their personalities as well.
The residents here are a diverse mix of attractive breeds, including Selkirk Rex, Scottish Fold, Maine Coon cat, Munchkin and Ragdoll. Two rather outgoing Bengals seemed to be among the ringleaders out on the floor.
Nyantsume (the name roughly means "cat claw marks") is up two flights of stairs in an office building, conveniently located near the eastern end of the main shopping and restaurant street of Dotonbori. The cafe is notable for its early opening hours, from 10am.
