Reptile café, Japan

‘And would you care for a snake with your tea, Sir?’

Japan has a growing number of pet cafes, where customers can cosy up to live animals as they drink. But this new ‘subtropical teahouse’ in Yokohama is home to pets of a less…well, cuddly, sort.

Around 40 reptiles nestle in tanks around the café, and include turtles, snakes, and even one lizard that measures more than a metre in length.

Yokohama is a port to the southwest of Tokyo, and the reptile café is located in Naka Ward, a short hop from Hinode-cho on the Keikyu Line.
