Traditional Japanese Inn Offers Its Guests Cat Companions To Spend The Night With

When it comes to finding ways to please their guests, hotels often go the extra mile. From an elevator bartender to in-room arcade games, hotels can get extremely creative if it means boosting their bottom line. One hotel in Japan has gone one step beyond the extra mile by offering their guests a feline roommate for their stay. Situated in the hot springs town of Yugawara, My Cat Yugawara is an exclusive inn that offers a “trail package” that includes sharing rooms with a cat. The cat will arrive at 5:30 p.m. and stay until 9 a.m. the next morning, keeping guests company and providing a snuggle time for the cats. However, it’s not all fun and games for the guests. They're also expected to take care of their “loaner kitty” by feeding it and managing its litter box. First-timers are required to attend a brief “training session" before heading off to their room with their feline friend. The trail package is $47 per person, with an additional $21 per cat.
