Japan is a place full of bizarre stuff. There is nothing worth surprising if you see something unusual there, just like the snake cafe in Tokyo’s Harajuku shopping district where display 35 non-venomous snakes of 20 different breeds. Although, I am not that type of people who can enjoy their food while looking at these cold blood animal slithering around. The apparently, this snake cafe is quite popular, especially for those teenagers. Open six days a week, the cafe allows customers to enjoy food and beverages while watching a small snake slither around in a cage on their table for a 1,000 yen (8.04 dollars). By paying an additional fee, customers get to hold and pet the snake. When ask the cafe owner why to open a cafe like this, the owner said “I was initially interested in environment conservation, and in that context, I wanted to show people the good parts about animals”.
