  • Vi fant denne pinnsvin cafeen på vår vandring i gjennom Kyoto. Måtte prøves , og artig var det. Her betalte man for å ha sitt eget lille pinnsvin i en 20 minutters tid. Ellers så lenge man ønsker . Ma...  more »
  • It was my biggest mistake in Kyoto to visit the Hedgie. If you have some love for animals, don't go there. I got a hedgehog that was stressed from the beginning and was shaking all the time. I left him alone at first and later when he was calmer I tried to lift up. Although I followed all the instructions, he bit me firmly in the finger (fortunately I had gloves on). See for yourself in the photos if such a happy hedgehog looks like.

  • I read the other reviews and was worried that the hedgehogs would be terrified as they stated. I think the hyperventilating that others described was just the hedgehog sniffing around since that's what mine did. The hedgehog was so cute and didn't even mind when I accidentally dropped her on her back lol (the fall was just a few inches).
  • We were excited to see the hedgehogs and booked an hour in advance but quickly left in 20 minutes- our hedgehog was so upset and unhappy and didn’t let us touch him. I don’t know how this place treats the animals but something just didn’t seem right...he was stressed and shaking the moment he was placed in the plastic tub. I don’t think I can ever support animal cafes in Japan anymore.
