03/09/2018

While there are various of  animal cafes these days, I would like to introduce a cafe where you can touch a adorable  “aonyx cinerea." "Kotsumeito" is located in the 5th floor of the weed building, within 10 minutes on foot from the JR Ikebukuro east exit.  At here, it is possible to interact with animals such as sugar gliders, hedgehogs, besides aonyx cinerea.

The half of the course can be play with aonyx cinerea, and other half can be play with sugar glider or hedgehog.

 

Aonyx cinerea is a genus of Mustelidae. The body length of aonyx cinerea is 41 ~ 64 cm, the tail length is 25 ~ 35 cm. They will get stress out easily if they do not get in the water frequently, so they must be in a environment where they can bathe. It named,”Kotsume Kawaiso” in Japanese because “Kotsume” means,”small nail” in Japanese, and aonyx cinerea also has small nails. They are very active and friendly! Currently, it is also an animal that is regarded as an extinction crisis, and "Kotsumeito" is the one of the place where able to touch and see aonyx cinerea closely!

You are not able to touch baby aonyx cinerea, but you can see it closely from the cage. The two bottom pictures are when foreigners playing with adult aonyx cinerea at that time. When one was trying to feed a food, aonyx cinerea will extend a cute little hand from the cage for food! The snack ticket is included to the course, so it is possible to give a snack to your favorite animal once!

Hi Everyone! Happy to see you all through this website! =) Are you enjoying our column and Tokyo information so far? I luv to travel abroad and going to new places and enlarge my horizon! I also luv to listen to music, and I am learning Chinese in this moment! What I like about Japan is the four seasons is very clear. Furthermore, the more you will know about Japan, I think you may discover more interesting things and how different each prefectures are. While Tokyo has new trend things, but in another hands, you can see old shopping street and town like Asakusa. I assume that everytime you come to Tokyo you can find and experience new things!!
