A relaxing place for a coffee… Or is it?
This cafe, which has just opened in Tokyo, is not for the faint-hearted.
Here you sip your drink in the company of 35 snakes.
None of them are venomous, meaning customers can get up close and personal with the reptiles.
The cafe's owner says he's interested in conservation, and hopes customers will realise the animals are worth saving, even though they often have a bad reputation.
not for the faint-hearted
not suitable for people who are not brave or do not like to take risks
get up close and personal
be intimate with something
(here) the act of protecting wildlife
opinion people have of someone or something
