With ten branches and counting, this popular chain knows how to deliver a cat-cafe experience to a mass audience. This particular branch seems even larger than average, with plenty of seating so that it doesn't seem crowded even when there are a lot of people here. Given the neighborhood, it's especially popular with tourists, and staff are prepared to accommodate visitors in English. There are 28 resident cats, including a lot of very pretty cats and exotic breeds.

There are three spacious playroom areas, with Mocha's signature artificial tree structure and birdcage-style stands so that the cats have lots of places to perch themselves and nap. Since there's a constant stream of visitors, the cats aren't all that excited to meet new people, but some of them, especially the younger ones, can be persuaded to play. You can also opt for the rather pricey cat treats (Y500) to attract their attention.

Unlike other branches, there's a thirty-minute minimum for the admission fee here, with additional increments of ten minutes after that. The self-service drink option (Y350) gets you unlimited coffee and soft drinks from the vending machines. Feeding times for the cats are 10:30am and 7:30pm every day
