So you want to hang out with a bunny?

Look no further than Candy Fruits’ Usagi no Yakata (Rabbit Hall) in Tokyo’s bustling Akihabara, a district known as much for its maid cafes now as it was for stores selling electronic gadgetry in days gone by.

“Welcome!” A woman in a pink outfit replete with rabbit ears says.

The staff members are known as “ko-usagi” (rabbit girls), but they are not the main attraction here — the rabbits are.

There is a basic charge of 1,600 yen (NT$600) per hour for admission. Coffee and tea are all-you-can-drink, but there is no food for people on the menu, only “rabbit snacks,” which cost an additional 200 yen and consist of finely chopped carrots, apples and turnip leaves — in other words, rabbit food. Visitors are allowed to play with the rabbits galore in the rabbit hall.
