The birds don't smell, they're super clean, look healthy but sleepy as well (probably because they're nocturnal animals). They are quite a few owls, some small some pretty big. The experience was great despite the fact that it's a bit sad to see the birds...More

I believe this is an appalling and ironically named establishment. ‘Happy Owl Cafe’ - how can an owl be ‘happy’ living in a place like this?! A room full of beautiful owls, tied to tables or in cages and subjected to daily torment by ignorant...More

Some owls are not ready for touching and two boys were “bitten” by one. Interesting to see them, not wanting to touch if they are not ready. The 1,500 yen includes an hour time with owl and a drink. The owls area is just next...More

Such beautiful animals! All in excellent condition, lovely clean cafe. The birds seem happy enough, of not a little miffed at being kept awake. We went on a Thursday around 1 pm and we were the only ones there. Awesome experience.

I'm never sure about animal cafes but this was a very cute experience. Really lovely staff, taking photos for me as I was alone and helping me hold an owl. They have so many different owls and it was quite a cool experience.
