Everyone has heard of the famous cat cafes of Tokyo, but did you know they’re in Osaka as well? CAT TAIL is one of the best quality cat cafes, with full interaction between customers and the cats!

With around 20 cats, they each come with their own individual personality, but all of the cats are friendly, and will quietly sit on customer’s laps and play with each other. This is a really unique experience, especially if you love cats but aren’t able to have a pet at home! Compared to winter, the cats don’t sit on customers as much during summer because it’s a bit hot, but some of the cats are known to climb onto shoulders, you should always take lots of photos to commemorate your visit and create lasting memories!

Cleanliness is top priority, and lockers are also provided so you can sit anywhere you’d like in the cafe with your friends and the cats without worrying about moving your bag from place to place.

CAT TAIL hopes you can relax and enjoy the soothing and healing experience of relaxing with their beautiful cats.

Unfortunately only Japanese and English speaking patrons are invited to CAT TAIL as these are the only languages staff can speak, and for the wellbeing of the cats, customers need to be instructed on how to interact with them. Only kind customers are allowed into CAT TAIL and customers who are too rough with the cats will be asked to leave. Thank you for understanding that this is done for the benefit and safety of the cats. Customers must be 10 years or older, thank you for your cooperation.


☆Please abide by our rules and read the advice about each of the cats!

  1. Manta, the big boss cat, is very friendly but has been known to suddenly bite. If you are a new customer, we ask that you do not touch Manta. Repeat customers may get a little bit closer each visit.
  2. You are responsible for any injuries or mess that you make in the store.
  3. It is prohibited to do anything the cats do not like (e.g. hugging them). If the cat sits naturally on your lap, it’s OK.
  4. It’s OK to take photos of the cats. Please do not use flash or take photos of the staff or other visitors.
  5. The cats do not like customers that call them with loud voices or customers that are frenzied, please be respectful to the cats.
  6. Do not feed the cats human food.
  7. Please do not leave any door or gate open at any time.

※For the comfort of the cats and the other guests, intoxicated guests, or guests with overwhelming perfumes and colognes will be refused entry at the staff’s discretion, we’re sorry for the inconvenience.  

Please be constantly aware of the above regulations from 1 – 7. You will be asked to leave if you break any of these rules. You will not be given a refund if you are asked to leave.

We have created the above regulations to create an environment of enjoyment for visitors and the cats. We ask for your understanding and cooperation.
