Walking back to the hotel from the Karaoke Kan in Roppongi, we spotted a bar called Neko no Shitsupo (Cat's Tail). Looking into the window of the basement establishment, I found this cute kitten staring at me with wide eyes. Of course, we had to go inside to pet her! Going into the bar meant we had to buy a drink (draft beer) and a snack (potatoes and bacon). When I pet the cat, who was sitting on a table eating grass, I spoke to the woman who eventually cooked our snack. The cat's name is Suzume, which means "sparrow." Strange name for a cat. Then again, we're talking about a cat who sits on a table and eats grass.
After eating and playing in the briefcase of another customer, Suzume settled onto a stool at the bar near us, where she took a nap on someone's purse.
