     Alpha

    The concept behind this event is: “A rumour between the residents of an Edo ‘nagaya’ and cats. Travellers from across the country catch sound of the rumour and come to get a glimpse.”

     

    The nagaya was a type of living quarters in the Edo period made like a row of houses. The cat café building is made to look like one of these. Ukiyo-e paintings and models will decorate inside and bring to life the street and atmosphere of the Edo period. There will be several zones inside building, including the cat tea room, cat ‘red light district,’ cat bath, cat nagaya, and cat plaza. Each area will be furnished with ukiyo-e that fit the scene, bringing to life the world of Edo.  You’ll have the chance to learn about the deep relationship between the people of Edo and cats through the commentaries of each ukiyo-e piece.

    Romeo

    The majority of the cats at Edo Neko Chaya are rescue cats. The number of rescue cats remains high as a result of the country’s record breaking cat boom. To raise awareness of this issue, part of the proceedings made at the café will go towards support funds tackling the issue of stray cats.

     

    A range of original merchandise will also be sold including t-shirts, cushions, purses, book covers, phone cases, towels, hand towels, clear files, tatami coasters, stickers and more. Artists fond of cats have also agreed to support tackling the issue of homeless cats by selling limited-edition ema plaques.

     

    But it doesn’t stop there. There will also be a chance to enjoy Edo’s food culture at -Ryogoku- Edo NOREN, join in a campaign being held in collaboration with Sumida Hokusai Museum, and more.
