This is the tenth branch of the popular cat-cafe chain, and the first one located in a suburban shopping mall, so unlike the central Tokyo branches this one is patronized by local people rather than tourists. Twenty resident cats, including a good number of playful kittens, have the full run of a fairly large multi-level playroom. The room includes a sunken pit area, and is furnished with Mocha's distinctive tree-shaped cat perches, with plenty of seating for visitors.

Lollipop-style cat treats are very popular with the cats, and are sold at the front desk for Y500, except during feeding times, which are at 10am and 7:30pm. Manga and videogames are available if you want to hang out for awhile, and there's an unlimited soft-drink bar with coffee, tea and sodas. Unlike some branches of Mocha, this one allows children from the age of three.
