Chill out at an owl café in Akihabara, take photos with the owls!
An interesting experience and definitely something a bit different to do in Tokyo. The cafe has been open since August 2014 and is popular with Japanese and foreign tourists equally for its friendly vibe, high interactivity quotient and calming, relaxing mood.
After a brief introduction in Japanese – no flash photography, no sudden movements, don’t squeeze the birds – you then have an hour to spend with the owls. There are about thirty owls in the cafe, perched on bars throughout the room. Each has a name and with that, presumably, comes a personality. Some are small and sweet, others bigger and evil-looking with vibrant eyes that are constantly watching their surroundings. There are owls that seem sleepy and owls that seem more alert, owls that barely move and others with heads constantly bobbing. At the end, you can get a laminated photo of you posing with an your favorite owl on your arm. Let the staff know if it's your birthday and you'll receive a special gift. Enjoy your relaxing time with cute owls!
