The Harry eatery located in Tokyo, Japan offers guests a unique cafe experience that allows eaters to cozy up to prickly hedgehogs while they dine. The eatery houses 30 hedgehogs in one room allowing consumers to pick them up and play with them. The cafe takes its name from the Japanese wood for needle, as a way to reference the texture of the prickly rodents.
Harry's offers an interactive atmosphere for guests that is similar to a pet shop as guests are allowed to play and touch the animals. The cafe charges an admission fee of $9 on weekdays and an increased $12 on weekends giving consumers the opportunity to cozy up to animals that greatly diverge in size, texture and feel from dogs, cats or bunnies. The cafe hopes to eliminate the stigma that hedgehogs are hard to cozy because of their texture.
