In stories this week, we have a hedgehog-themed café, a woman buying the church where five generations of her family wed, a soapbox race in Switzerland, a baker creating colorful, geometric pies and synchronized skydivers performing amazing moves.

In Tokyo's bustling Shibuya district, the latest sensation is ChikuChiku Cafe, a space that's reportedly Japan's first to be dedicated to hedgehogs.

ChikuChiku's collection of trained hedgehogs — small, spiny mammals that resemble porcupines, although their spikes are quite soft — live in dollhouses placed atop long counters.
