Pet Hotel and Grooming in Tsukuba

In recent years, kennels have been given a makeover and now they are known as “pet hotels”. There are a number of pet hotels available near Narita Airport, and you can even arrange to have your pet taken to a pet hotel as a part of your parking fees when you drive to the airport.

If you live in Tsukuba, Ibaraki, you can board your pet at while you travel. Prices range from 2000 yen to 3000 yen for a single night in a cage, to 4000 yen to 6000 yen for a whole room. You can also pay extra for some “friendship time” for your dog, where he or she will be able to hang out with the other dogs (or with a staff member if your dog is not good with other dogs) once, twice, or three times per day.

Pets must be dropped off after noon on one day and picked up before noon on the following day. If you are late, you will be charged half of the “day time” rate (which is half of the overnight rate). also offers an indoor dog run and trimming services. is located on the corner of Nishi Odori and Minami Odori. You can’t miss the big yellow building with the GIGANTIC image of a dog painted on it.

I have never used this pet hotel, so I can’t make any specific recommendations about it. If you have used it, or if you have any other pet hotels to recommend, please leave a note in the comments.
