Akihabara: Bird cafe
₯unlisted
€Data
This owl cafe in the
center of Akihabara
has a unique atmos-
phere - more like a
theme-park attrac-
tion than an animal
cafe. From the out-
side it looks like a
repurposed downtown
office, but inside
it's a fantasy world
of sleepy owls,
crystal chandeliers,
uniformed staff and
soft classical mu-
sic.

The cafe has been
open since August
2014 and is popular
with Japanese and
tourists equally for
its friendly vibe,
high interactivity
quotient and calm-
ing, relaxing mood.

It's easy to make an
online reservation,
and once the date
and time are con-
firmed, you'll be
asked to arrive ten
minutes before the
appointment. The
uniformed staff hand
out an informative
folder (in Japanese
and English) that
goes well beyond the
usual bird-handling
etiquette tips. It
also has pages of
interesting info on
owls' feeding hab-
its, diet, eye col-
or, pet laws, etc.
Even the bird-han-
dling talk is theat-
rical - while the
manager makes the
announcement, an-
other staff member
holds up a bird
leash and shows how
to return an owl to
its perch - just
like a flight atten-
dant demonstrating a
seat belt.
