What a hoot!

I absolutely adore owls! While I knew I wanted to visit an owl café, I didn’t want to wait in line too long. When I found out about Akiba Fukurou and their reservations needed rule, I knew it was the perfect place to visit!

Guests are asked to be in front of the store 10 minutes before the reserved time. The staff will hand out a booklet (English & Japanese) explaining some rules on interacting with owls. You will then pay for the admission fee.

They will direct you to a table that has a couple of bottled drinks, and you’re free to take one as part of the admission. You must also sanitize your hand before you handle any owls! Once everyone is seated, they reiterate the rules and allow you to go around and look at the owls.

If you want to hold an owl, you must ask one of the staff members to help you. Some owls are small that their talons do not hurt your arm. For bigger owls, the staff will require you to wear a glove.

This little owl is the cutest one of all and is probably my favorite! She is well behaved and does not way a ton unlike some of them!

Towards the end of the session, they have a professional camera and take a photo of you with the owl. They also print and laminate it as a souvenir. When I went home that day, I was pleasantly surprise to find an email from them with the photo attached. Excellent service!

I think everyone should visit this owl café because they have a great selection of owls. They also try not to have too many visitors on one day so the owls have time to rest. They definitely take care of the little beauties!
