Visit the world’s only black cat cafe in Japan’s Himeji

In many parts of the world black cats are thought to be bringing bad luck, but in Japan they seem to enjoy a better reputation. Nekobiyaka in the city of Nimeji claims to be the only cafe in the world dedicated exclusively to black felines. Footage from Tuesday shows visitors feeding and playing with black cats while enjoying a coffee. “There was a reality that black cats were slaughtered at the Public Health Centre. I wanted to connect that reality with those who like black cats, so I opened a black cat cafe,” said Ayako Yagi, the owner of Nekobiyaka. There are currently eleven black cats in the cafe to spend time with for around 8 euro ($9.6) per hour.(Ruptly.tv)
