Japanese pet shop and cafe

Checking out the local fish stores before I buy my tank.

I thought aqua forest nature aquarium was amazing, then I stepped in to this place

It was a combination of fresh and saltwater, so my daughters enjoyed the clown fish while I studied scapes and drooled over ADA glassware. Tanks after yen conversion is like 120 for A 60p. This complex has 2 buildings, this was the fish building, the other was the dogs, cats and small critters.

I will be coming back, haha. Hopefully with out kids and a wife so I can look at scapes undisturbed.

Very nice! Reminds me of the Fish Gallery we have around here. I wonder how competitive their prices are?

Wow that's a nice place! I thought the shops here in the Kanagawa prefecture were nice. The cheapest place I've found to go is called かねだい(Kanedai). They have a few shops all over Japan, not sure about Okinawa though,sry..anyways they also have a use section and their tanks are always dirt cheap.

Once you step foot in a pet store in Asia you get overwhelmed at what we are missing here. It's so crazy there. Especially doggy cafés.
