Called Harry, a play on the Japanese word for hedgehog, it's home to more than 20 little pricklers and recently welcomed Instagram's head of fashion Eva Chen, who live streamed her trip there on Facebook...

If you're in Tokyo anytime soon and want to pop by, ¥1,000 (about £6.50) will get you half an hour with a hog of your choice, and you can even buy meal worms to feed them.

'We wanted to show people the charm of hedgehogs, which give the impression of being hard to handle. We wanted to get rid of that image by letting people touch them,' staff member Mizuki Murata recently told The Independent.

And don't worry, the cafe does it's utmost to keep the hedgehogs, which have been a popular domestic pet in Japan for some time, happy at all times.
