The Harry Hedgehog Cafe in Tokyo’s out to push the spiky creatures’ cuddlier side. For a fee starting at nine dollars customers can get close up and personal with a prickly companion.
Staff at the cafe say the hedgehog’s image needs a makeover. They want to make a point of the animals’ softer side.
The hedgehog cafe is part of a spike in animal-themed eateries in Tokyo where there are already establishments devoted to cats, rabbits, snakes and several types of birds.
