ChikuChiku Hedgehog Cafe
The animal cafe train continues chugging right along. Of all the animal spots we went to this was probably my favorite. When else could you hold a hedgehog??
After what seemed like a pretty stressful hunt in the rain for ChikuChiku Hedgehog Cafe in Shibuya…. we found it!
I had read that this place fills up fast and nearly all day so I was worried we were going to get turned away or would have to wait a while for a spot. But I guess the downpour of rain worked in our favor, because there were only a couple other people in the cafe when we arrived.
It is sooo ridiculously cute and bright inside, with several different little dollhouse-esque stations to sit at and play with the hedgehogs. We opted for the 30 min admission and chose to buy little pellet or biscuit type snacks to feed our hedgehog over the dried meal worms!
We chose Kiki in her sweet little pink kitchen ;)
These photos make her look kind of small but in real life she was actually one of the bigger if not the biggest hedgehog we saw there that day. And all blonde which was unique. Many of the others were a lot more brown or what you would traditionally think when you think of hedgehogs.
HA! We would have to take little breaks after feeding her and holding her, because she’d want to hide out in a ball like this is different corners of her house.
Bonding with Kiki. I really wish you could have these in the states.
I reaaaaally wish I could remember this girl’s name. She was the absolute nicest. We were only supposed to get to play with one hedgehog for what we paid for but she hooked it up and let us play with Plum! If there ever was a perfect personality for someone that works with hedgehogs it was her. She was sooo nice <3
There were several other hedgehogs that were “on break” chilling out when they weren’t hanging with people. So cute.
He’s got an apple hat on his head.
HE’S GOT AN APPLE HAT ON HIS HEAD! Omg haha we were ded. Soooo ridiculously kawaiiiii.
These three little amigos in their tiny little town.
I pointed to a basket of tiny hats. “What are these?”
“It’s a beret!”
“For the hedgehogs?”
So there you have it folks, a simple and straight forward post whose only purpose was to brighten your day a little with some insanely cute hedgehogs. If you’re ever in Tokyo I completely recommend checking them out!
