A Rabbit A Day At The Bunny Cafe


Hello there, bunnies! Wow, you are cute and friendly. Please don’t poop on me.

Fortunately, lap diapers are dispensed at the door, so you can enjoy the lovely bunnies without any dry cleaning anxiety. At the Ohisama rabbit café, a 30-minute lapful of long-eared fluffiness will set you back about ten bucks, including the coffee/tea of your choice (served in the room next door, to avoid the dreaded fur garnish).

Do you have food? Are you food? If you were food, we wouldn’t have to order pizza for a week!
Food! Food! Oh. Not food.
The hardworking rabbitoids of Ohisama, battling it out to be #1 Bunzilla.

Writing mystery books set in Tokyo is mostly what I do, but I also blog about the odd stuff I see every day in Japan. I'm a graduate of Stanford University and the Sendagaya Japanese Institute in Tokyo, and a member of the International Thriller Writers, the Mystery Writers of America, and Sisters In Crime. When I'm not in Tokyo, I live in San Francisco. I also host a travel site called The Tokyo Guide I Wish I'd Had, so if you're headed to Japan and want to check out the places I take my friends when they're in town, take a look!

  1. Fun fact: bunny poop is incredibly nutritious because their fluffy innards can’t digest everything, so rabbits will often eat their own excrement after the first cycle.

    I used to have a pet rabbit, but her cage was a wire netting at the bottom so she’d poop on the ground. Great fertilizer, at least….

  2. Yikes, utterly fascinating bordering on TMI! heh. I know people who keep their rabbits in wire cages and move them systematically around their lawn as a sort of living fertilizer system. It’s, um, organic or something.
