We arrived just before closing time so we had the entire place to ourselves. It is located in the same building as the Tokyo Snake Center.
Entrance fee is 1500 YEN ($16 CAD) and includes a drink from the fridge, in which they have canned cold sweet coffee so you'll be able to acquire your caffeine fix.
My Polish friend Pamela @PAM_TERCJEK was blown away by the adorable baby owls especially during feeding time, making ultra kawaii (cute) faces while munching down on some freshly skinned quail meat.
The most impressive part was the fact that the owl cafe also includes larger falcons which were quite heavy to carry on your arm.
Some interesting facts regarding owls: did you know that owls can turn their head 270 degrees and that they have 3 eyelids; one for blinking, one for sleeping and one for keeping the eye clean and healthy.
The address to the owl cafe is Tokyo-to, Shibuya-ku, Jingumae, 6 Chome-5 150-0001.Check back again for next week's episode from Tokyo on reformatt.com!
