While cat cafes, owl cafes and even dog cafes are all the rage in Japan, the proprietors of Yawarakan’s Cafe in Tokyo has cornered the market on an obscure but marketable idea – a full-service restaurant and hotel for stuffed animals. No human food is served nor are there any human accommodations, rather the cafe offers an opportunity for a person’s favorite stuffed animal to get the royal treatment. The beloved plushy is sent via overnight mail and returns with photos and other goodies from their overnight adventure. Reservations are filling up despite the fact that the cafe only opened yesterday.
