Owl cafe Akiba Fukurou, Chiyoda

4.9
#1 of 687 in Fun & Games in Japan
There's an unusual friend waiting to hang out with you over at Owl cafe Akiba Fukurou. Yes, owls of various shapes and sizes perch patiently here, ready to be held and petted. Much like Tokyo's popular cat cafes, in which the every day stresses of city life melt away in the company of a friendly creature, here you'll get an hour-long session with a room full of owls. As ambient mood music plays away from the neon lit, busy streets, you can move from owl to owl, aquainting yourself with the various breeds, and interacting with them in this novel establishment. Be aware that the owls may sometimes make a mess on you (which the staff will do their best to clean up), so consider wearing something you don't mind getting a little dirty. Planning Tokyo trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.

  • What a wonderful experience! The Access instructions written on the website are very helpful since the place is in a small alley way. We arrived early, so we sat outside on the seats provided and wait...  more »
  • Before get in, we're afraid the smell of birds and bird poop. However it isn't. The host and hostess are so friendly and a warm welcome from them make us feel like family. There're many breeds of owls...  more »
  • Our visit to the coffee of owls in summer really great..! We went there with my mother and my husband, and we were impressed by this small haven of peace in full Akiabara. The staff is very welcoming, and the very clear explanations. Owls are sensitive animals but although there is a number (a little more than a fortnight), they look very healthy, which has strengthened us in our choice :) The experience is accompanied by classical music, and seen that we must be calm and whisper for the good to be birds, it's very relaxing! Owls come in all sizes, and we can carry on itself, most often on the arm, but there "mine" walked up to my shoulder to not move it, which was very friendly;). I recommend to all those who want to live an unforgettable experience, and make a parenthesis in the Tokyo frenzy!

  • We went here without a reservation but a party of the same number had just cancelled (or not shown up?) so we got in. It was very cute inside and there were many different types of owls. The employee who took us in was a guy and he was very kind and spoke fluent English. He told us the names of the owls and took a family photo of us. He seemed to know the owls well and care for them a lot. If they got stressed he brought them back to their perches. It was a fun experience. I would recommend it.
  • A rather unique and fun experience. The employees explained everything clearly and well and seemed very knowledgeable about each of the owls. They are fluent in both Japanese and English, so it's a popular place for tourists. They were experienced at handling the owls and knew what to do to calm them down. They were also quick to clean up owl droppings on the floor, so the room was always very tidy. The owls also appeared well trained and could even fly back to their posts. The atmosphere was very relaxing and peaceful, and it's a great place to unwind from the stress and just chill with some owls. I would definitely go back again!
  • A wonderful experience! My fiance's family and I visited for his mom's birthday and we all really enjoyed the experience. We had a 12:00 PM reservation, the first reservation they have. There were two employees there and they were both very helpful and kind. It is a very quiet environment because the owls have sensitive hearing and because some owls were still sleeping. The staff really seemed to care about these animals by the way they speak and tend to each owl. They also give you a free photograph as a souvenir of your visit. The owls are also very soft! It's a relaxing change from the typical cat cafe in Japan. The only thing is that an hour goes by way too fast here! Try to see/hold more owls before you have to leave. Definitely a great experience and I would like to return again the next time I'm there!
  • We loved this place! So happy we stopped by! The owls were absolutely gorgeous and each one had so much character. We had them sit on our arms which was a beautiful one on one experience with the owls. I got to know snowman who was super cute! The staff were lovely and you could tell they care a lot about the owls. Totally recommend.
  • I went to this owl cafe with three of my friends, one of which was skeptical about the cafe. The employees were super informative and you could tell they really cared for the owls and enjoyed what they do. The space was really quaint and there were tables and couches inside. The owls are perched all over the cafe, ranging from small little ones to big ones who freak you out a little bit. It was really enjoyable and calming to hold them and take pictures with. All of us were adults and would definitely only recommend for older kids as the owls can be a little intimidating at first. In the end, even the skeptic had a great time. Would definitely recommend going for anyone in Tokyo!

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
