First it was cat cafes, where you could pay to cuddle up to felines. Then came owl cafes, dog cafes, budgie cafes, snake cafes and even goat cafes.
Now there`s a new kid on the block in Japan`s animal cafe industry- hedgehog cafes.
Less cuddly than cats or dogs, but just as cute, hedgehogs are the feature of new cafe Harry in Tokyo where you can pay to have a coffee, snack and play with the adorable animals.
And if hedgehogs aren`t your thing, there`s also a rabbit cafe called Ms Bunny right next door where you can pet Bugs Bunny instead.
Harry cafe offers customers a half hour of hour of playtime with their choice of hedgehog for 1000 yen ($12) on weekdays and 1,300 yen ($16) on weekends and public holidays.
Ms Bunny offers the same price next door if rabbits are more your style. If you don`t feel like being cooped up inside, Ms Bunny also offers a `Roppongi Rabbit Walk` option.
For 3,000 yen ($37) you can take a rabbit for a walk around the area- depending on the weather and how the rabbits are feeling, of course.
