Today, there are many establishments dedicated to the hospitality industry that have pets inside the premises. Certainly, it is becoming to be more popular in European countries like Spain or the United Kingdom, although the most famous pet cafes are in Tokyo.
The appearance of this type of cafes is related to the strict code of conduct that Japan demands from its citizens. Apartment owners do not allow their tenants to have pets for a proper life.
