Los Angeles is crazy fun! We have a newspaper feature brewing… can’t wait to show you. Add me on Twitter for the latest updates.

Filming for TV shows is fun, but the all-day-and-all-night schedule can be taxing. Especially on travel shows, which try to cram as many locations as possible into a single day. The Canal Plus French crew took a much-needed break for a bento lunch. Famous host Antoine de Caunes holds up his box.

Every time I open up a bento box, a sense of calm washes over me. Everything is so beautifully compartmentalized: the salmon, veggies, rice. Ahh.

Once we were fed, we piled back into the TV crew van. Onwards, to a cat cafe in Ikebukuro.

Every Tokyo neko cafe has a resident Scottish Fold, but this one isn’t nearly as round or earless as my Basil Farrow…

Antoine did a hilarious ad lib gag with the black cat. He pretended to sneeze and wipe his snotty hand on the kitty’s fur!

My Lolita cake hat, gifted from Agent Lover, is not edible. But I brought Antoine some cute food…

After he was through with them, the kawaii faces were destroyed!

Cat cafes are pretty amazing. Felines roam around the establishment, and visitors can pet and play with them, while sipping on cafe lattes.

Antoine also did an impromptu speech with the cats that had us cracking up.

I’ll post video clips from Toque de Tokyo, the Canal Plus French documentary, soon. Til then, you can see behind-the-scenes coverage here on my blog.

Intrigued by Japanese cat cafes? There are more stories and color photos in my Crazy, Wacky Theme Restaurants: Tokyo book.

    I’ve always wanted to visit a cat cafe, but my boyfriend always points out that I live in a cat cafe XD

    But those cats seem to be so much more well-behaved! They’re not trying to sit on your face like mine do.

      These cats are always special breeds (like American Curls, Scottish Folds) and very well socialized. The cafes are nice places to hang out.

    When I was in Tokyo in April I managed to go to two cat cafés, the Nekobukuro and the Calico Cat Café. They were amazing. I was in heaven there. :)

    Here is my video from the Calico:

    I went to a cat cafe with friends in Ichikijouji this past August. It was a really neat cafe that served organic food/drinks and some of the cats were rescues. Really sweet cats. One kept playing with our friend (or rather chewing playfully on him). I would definitely go to a cat cafe again.

    • Posted December 30, 2010 at 11:17 pm | Permalink

      That’s really nice… usually the cats are purebreds, so it’s awesome to hear about a place that has rescues.

    I ordered my copy of the theme restaurant book a few days ago, it should arrive tomorrow! Can’t wait. I’d love to go to a catcafe but I’ll need to own a cat for a year or so to come over my slightly allergy for cats >.<

    • Posted December 30, 2010 at 11:20 pm | Permalink

      You are amazing. Thanks so much for your support! Let me know what you think of the book ;)

  24. Posted December 30, 2010 at 2:59 pm | Permalink

    Nice food!

  25. Posted December 30, 2010 at 2:59 pm | Permalink

    This TV show was awesome ^^

  26. Posted December 30, 2010 at 3:30 pm | Permalink

    Oh yeah, I can’t wait for watching thic documentary! >w< You're svery lucky, Antoine de Caunes is so funny! <3
