CAFE & BAR OWL VILLAGE
Cafe & Bar Owl Village has 2 branches: one in Harajuku and one in Kichijoji. The Harajuku store received the Certificate of Excellence (Excellence) of TripAdvisor 2017! As you probably have guessed, the concept of the stores is to allow visitors to interact with the owls. There are about 10 of them. You can feed them and pet them gently all in a safe environment respectful of the animals' needs. There is also a comfortable cafe space where you can enjoy coffee or other drinks. When you visit, you'll receive 1 glass souvenir, a complimentary drink, and 35 mins of interactions with owls.
Owls are actually very delicate and gentle animals.
Akiba Fukurou is located near the Akihabara Station. The store provides its guest a comfortable space to interact with the gentle owls. One of the interesting features of this place is that there is an in-house photographer that will take your picture with a single-lens reflex camera so you can have a nice souvenir of your experience. Be aware that visits are allowed by reservation only and that children under 7 cannot enter.
Owls all have their unique and interesting personalities and there are also a variety of Japanese owl species. That's probably one of the most interesting part when interacting with owls at the owl cafes in Tokyo.
OWL NO MORI
This owl cafe is quite different in its atmosphere than the typical owl cafe. It used to be a maid cafe so the decor is quite colorful and you'll see the owls among vegetation which is supposed to be their forest. They have over a dozen owls among which are rare species. Children are welcome here. Upon entering you'll be given a brief explanation on how to interact with the owls. No reservation is needed. The entrance fee is ¥500 and you'll have to buy a drink (start at around ¥200). You can also buy beer. As an extra bonus, if you're into rare animals, there are some fish tanks with some piranhas for your viewing pleasure.
FUKURO NO MISE
Fukuro No Mise is located near the Tsukishima Metro Station. For 2,000 yen, you get a drink and 1-hour to spend with the owls and a photograph of you and an owl. The staff is friendly and polite. There are curtains on the windows so that the place is not too bright for the owls, and that gives the room an overall peaceful atmosphere. There are about 25 owls to interact with freely. As a drink, you can have coffee, fruit juices, beer or wine.
Which Japanese owl will be your favourite?
