Watch Goats Bring 'Wow Factor' to a Japanese Cafe

New, 4 comments

Japanese cat and dog cafes — where guests can play with friendly animals while they drink their coffee — are already a thing, so one enterprising Tokyo cafe owner has returned to the farm for her cafe gimmick. Cafe owner Rena Kawaguchi has raised two goats, named Sakura and Chocolate, and brings them to her downtown Tokyo cafe in an effort to allow guests to "get closer to nature." Says Kawaguchi: "We though an everyday animal... wouldn't have the wow factor of a goat." As Kawaguchi tells one reporter, she has ambitions to open an elephant cafe in the future. There's goat video, go watch here:
