I made friends with owls in Ikebukuro!
Maybe it was kind of a one-sided friendship. But at least they posed with us for the picturesIt was so interesting because I’d never really thought about going to an owl cafe even though they’re pretty popular in Tokyo. But my friend invited me to go so I got to see it myself for the first time!
The setup inside turned out to be a lot nicer than I’d expected. They’d really gone all out with the forest theme; it was us and the owls under a lot of trees. And a TV too, if you wanted to watch old Moomin episodes with your new feathered friends.
There were owls everywhere, and some of them blended into the forest so well I thought they were statues.
I loved this owl which just looked plain shocked to see me.
It cost ¥890 to get it, but there wasn’t a time limit and they gave you a drink. So I could still enjoy my chocolate banana smoothie surrounded by owls.
It’s one of those places that’d be nice to experience at least once in your life. And then go again if you have money or a great passion for owls
