Inside the Mame Shiba Inu Cafe, Harajuku
On paper, a bistro loaded up with adorable pups going around openly seems like paradise (to a pooch sweetheart like me at any rate), yet now and then reality doesn’t mirror the dream. So we at grape Japan evaluated the Mame Shiba Inu Cafe to check whether it merits all the promotion.
