cute owls
Jul 2018 • Family
It is better to make the reservation online before going. We were a group of 5 so we could enjoy the session without any other people.
The staff doesn't know English well. I have printed my reservation email so she understood quicker.
There are quite a lot of different owls in such a small cafe.
You need to choose feeding the owls or not when you pay the entrance fee. My girl and I paid to feed the owls. 300 yen isn't much but we were given very little meat only. If I don't remember wrong, we could feed 3 times only. Anyway, it was really sweet to feed the owls. They are lovely.
We were there on a weekday so we needn't rush to leave after an hour. We would stay there for a bit longer.
We could choose one owl/hawk to put on our arm. The staff would suggest which owl/hawk you could select. Some of them aren't too friendly or even dangerous. It was an unique and special experience. I have never got so closed interaction with owls before. you could pet it. The staff would tell you what kind of touch the owls would enjoy.
The rest of us could enjoy unlimited drinks from a machine. I think the apple juice taste the best. You could also choose green tea, water or soft drink.
Even though we enjoy the time with the owls, we feel sorry for them as well at the same time.

Good and unique experience
Aug 2017 • Couples
Unique experience where you get to see owls in close contact in a safe environment. You get to have unlimited drinks from a vending machine and a chance to hold an owl of your choice on your arm. As other reviewers have mentioned, despite this being a unique experience, you may have certain queries regarding the conditions of the owls, given, although they are properly fed, they are chained from doing any flying and are kept from their nocturnal lifestyle. But overall still a unique experience and one can only hope the owls get adopted/bought out soon.

Cool Experience; Questionable Ethics
Aug 2016 • Friends
A friend took me here for my first experience in an Owl Cafe. You pay an admission fee, which gives you unlimited beverages from their machine, a small amount of food to feed the owls, and the opportunity to get to hold an owl (they have it perch on your gloved hand). It's a neat experience to get to see owls up close, but you have to question how the setup is for the owls (especially because owls are usually nocturnal).

I believe the owls are available for "adoption," but unlike cat or dog cafes, the owls are very expensive.
