We visited the Micro Pig cafe and spent a delightful time with the most ADORABLE micro pigs. The Meguro micro cafe opened in March this year and was such a hit they opened another location in Harajuku this month! Not only can you spend time with the micro pigs the cafe also sells them to families offering the piglets a permanent home.
Mipig Cafe Meguro is a 4 story building with natural light and soft wood interior. As we entered we signed a waiver (english available), sanitized our hands then when it was our time we were led to the 2nd floor where we removed our shoes and wore slippers. We were then directed to a table with a menu to order our drink.
While we browsed the menu one micro pig walked straight to us. The micro pigs were all surprisingly friendly, and potty trained! Micropigs are odourless and some could even do a few tricks. Purchase Mipig snacks (300 yen) and they’ll stay at your table. Please note they can get aggressive when feeding snacks.
The entry fee for the first 30 minutes is 800 yen, and 500 yen for every 30 mins after. Drinks are 600 yen and up, and 300 yen for carrot and sweet potato nibbles to feed the pigs. Reservations required.
They have 15 pigs at the Meguro location aged 6 and 11 months. The younger micro pigs are now at the NEW HARAJUKU Micro Pig cafe that just opened this month. Reservations required. While you’re there visit our Shibuya, Harajuku, Omotesando, and Aoyama area Itinerary with Kids and make a day of it.
