If cat, rabbit, owl, hawk and even snake-themed cafes aren't enough for animal lovers, Japan is now even more spoiled for choice with the addition of a hedgehog-themed cafe for people to chill out with the cute and little animals.
Customers at "Harry" - a play on the animal's name in Japanese - have been lining up to spend time at a bright room in the Roppongi entertainment district where 20 to 30 hedgehogs of different breeds scrabble and snooze in glass tanks.
A board shows a selection of hedgehogs for sale at the new cafe in Tokyo, April 5, 2016. Customers have been queuing to play with the prickly mammals, which have long been sold in Japan as pets. The cafe's name Harry alludes to the Japanese word for hedgehog, harinezumi. Prices are shown in yen.
