I went to an owl cafe on Sunday. 
It's in downtown Osaka and costs only
1000円 for an hour (with a drink). 
It's called 'Lucky Owl', here is a link if you are interested. 
I thought it was great. It was clean, and
the animals looked healthy and well cared for. 


  1. Gee, they are also a pet shop! It is likely somebody buy a baby owl and once he grew up, he is abandoned. Do you know a biology of the owl? It may be nocturnal. If it is true, it will be tough to keep it as a pet.

  2. That is a good point Masa, the owls were also for sale. But I only saw mature birds (1 year old is full grown) for sale, no babies. In Australia you would need a special license to keep an owl. I don't know about in Japan. I expect maybe not. They are most definitely nocturnal, but so are cats, I guess they would get used to it after a while. Thing is, unlike cats & dogs owls have not been domesticated over thousands of years. They have no need for humans and as large hunting birds I expect they are not very happy about being kept inside all the time.
