Friendly goats become stars in Japan

Report & Video by Ashley Fudge

Two goats have become stars in Tokyo after their owner took them on daily walks and kept them in a pen at her cafe.

Rena Kawaguchi can be seen walking Chocolat and Sakura around the centre of the capital city.

She brought the goats into her care and raised them there to try and boost sales three years ago. Now, they are attracting a breed of animal-loving customers.

The two three-year-olds are both goats native to Japan and are mostly no trouble, according to Kawaguchi.

"They're both women and they get on really well together - they always snuggle up to each other when they go to sleep at night. But the white one, Sakura, sometimes gets really violent when it comes to her food. At feeding time she goes straight for it, attacking Chocolat so she can get to it first," she said.

With goats proving a hit, Kawaguchi says she has got her sights set on bigger plans. An elephant cafe is top of the list.
