Went in the Owl Cafe for a few minutes. Upon entering visitors pay the entrance fee. The staff explains the do's and don'ts inside the cafe. Picture taking of the owls is ok but touching them with the palm of your hand is prohibited.More

Paid for 1/2 hour and got to pet the owls and hold some of them as well. Never tried that before so really enjoyed it. Nice place to go when in Tokyo.

This place is sad. We walked in thinking it was an interesting concept, and left soon after. The owls are roped to their branches and look distressed - avoiding all contact with people. Yes, you can pet them, but it’s clear they aren’t happy. They...More

Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.
