Owl Cafes In Akihabara
Akihabara is the Mecca for all kinds of unusual cafes. Walking through electric town, you should come across anime-themed cafes, maid and butler cafes, cat and dog cafes just to name a few. However, what has been rising in popularity all over Tokyo in recent years are owl cafes. You read that right, cafes in which you can not only look at the majestic birds but also pet them. The birds are said to have a therapeutic calming aura, and their treatment is closely regulated. If you are interested having a close encounter with owls, then the two cafes listed below are highly recommended.
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. See their website to make reservations.
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.
