They've already got cat cafes and rabbit cafes - so it was only a matter of time before a hedgehog café opened up in Tokyo, Japan.

People there have to pay around £6 get to spend up to an hour with a hedgehog and customers have been queuing up to get in.

Hedgehogs aren't originally from Japan, so it's a rare to see them.

The owners are hoping the cafe will show people that hedgehogs are actually gentle, and not as spiky as they look.
