Osaka’s cat hostel recently transformed its rooms into mini offices for remote work, with windows overlooking the venue’s cat café next door. Now Tokyoites can also enjoy a cat-filled working environment at Sangenjaya’s newest co-working space, Sanchaco

This three-storey building originally opened in June last year as a rescue cat shelter, but has recently opened its first floor as a co-working space for remote workers. There are desks, power outlets and free wifi, so you can use the space to get your work done and, of course, play with the building’s four resident cats: Mi-chan, Hana-chan, Torakichi and Fuku. They’re all rescue cats who are taken care of by residents and neighbours.

Sanchaco is currently accepting new members for its purr-fect co-working space and you can sign up as a niku-kyu-kaiin (meaning ‘cat paw member’). Monthly fees range from ¥5,000 (one weekday per week) to ¥18,000 (unlimited visits), plus there’s a one-off registration fee of ¥2,990. Besides covering the utility bills and wifi, your money will go towards supporting the rescue cats. Members also get access to exclusive events and pop-up shops held in the meeting space on the first floor.
