Mipig Cafe

If you think pigs only belong on farms, think again. Mipig Cafe in Tokyo lets you meet and interact with micro pigs in, well, a cafe setting. And the animals are so much cuter and affectionate than you’d expect.

First micro pig cafe in Japan

Mipig Cafe is the first cafe in Japan that allows you to pet and cuddle micro pigs. You can even take home these cute little animals as pets. Reservations to the cafe are required and can be done through their website

Entering the first floor, you will be greeted by energetic micro pigs at a play pen right below their shop sign. Before you can proceed to the upper floors, a staff member will ask you to first sign a liability waiver form.

Entry fee to Mipig Cafe is ¥1,100 (~USD10.95) for one adult for the first 30 minutes and ¥550 (~USD5.47) for every 30 minutes thereafter. A minimum purchase of 1 drink (¥600, ~USD5.97) is required as well. Snacks for the micro pigs are purchased separately, available from 11am-4pm, with prices starting from ¥300 (~USD2.99).

Elementary school students and preschoolers have separate pricings, so check out their website for more information.

As you enter the second floor, you will notice the bohemian-style interior and pots of fresh plants that give the place a pop of colour. This theme is consistent throughout the remaining floors. 

This is the first of two floors where you can freely interact with the micro pigs.

The third floor is a special one, reserved exclusively for people adopting the micro pigs. Here, you will learn how to take care of the micro pigs and bring your favourite one home.

Head to the fourth floor for more micro pig fun. At this attic-cum-balcony, you’ll meet a different set of micro pigs. These micro pigs love to bask in the sun when it’s out, so you’ll see them running around next to the big windows.

Get to know micro pigs

Also known as “teacup pigs”, micro pigs are intelligent animals that originated from England. Besides knowing how to sit and jump upon instruction, these micro pigs are potty trained.

Micro pigs are odourless and friendly, so don’t be afraid to pet them. When they are happy, they’ll even make snorting noises and wag their tails.

If you have any pig-related questions, you can direct them to the staff, who will be more than happy to educate you. They have English speakers on duty as well.
