There are a lot of cat cafes in Japan and you might have heard it. But have you ever heard owl café? Especially owl cafes are a great alternative if you are allergic to cats. Cute owls will heal you so much with whatever drinks you like! There are most of them in the suburbs, so they make you a good opportunity to visit a typical residential area, far from the electric dynamism of the city center. Today I want to introduce the owl cafe “Fukurou sabou” is located in Kokubunji (about 20 minutes away from Shinjuku station).
Kokubunji is small and beautiful residential area. As the café is about 10 minutes walk from the station so you can really enjoy the local area not as central busy Tokyo.
The cafe itself is in a little yard down a residential street. You won’t miss the wooden booth in the front of the shop where some of their most impressive owls may stand. While the inside of the cafe is very small, it is cute and comfortable.
You can see the owls through little glass displays. There are from all kinds of races and ages, so it makes it really enjoyable to watch and appreciate their diversity. They are furthermore very quiet and won’t disturb you at all. As long as you take a drink, you can take pictures and have a walk around the shop. If you pay few more yen, you can even ask to hold an owl on your own arm! Prices for the petting start from ¥300, so they are pretty affordable and are definitely worth the experience. If you like animals or birds, surely it’s going to be a very great experience for you. Interesting? Please check it out!
