Let me introduce you another unique cafe in Japan. I already know that you can find all kind of themed cafes with famous characters, Animes, animals or maids in Japan. However, it was the first time that I heard about an owl cafe! Seriously, I am not kidding, there are cafes in Japan, where you can meet and greet real owls! During the school lessons we chat about maid and neko cafes. My school friend then told me that there is an owl cafes in Hakata. I definitely wanted to go there before leaving Fukuoka, so I asked my Japanese friend if she would love to join me to this cafe. (She is from Fukuoka, but even she has never heard about the owl cafe *lol*)
The owl cafe is called フクロウのみせ and it is located just next to the Kushida Shrine in Hakata. The nearest station is the Nakasukawabata station, from there it is only 5 minutes by foot. They have fixed starting hours (every full hour from 11:00 ~ 19:00). Just a certain number of people can visit the cafe so go there early enough or ask for reservation. A drink at the cafe costs 1’000 Yen (~8 USD), alcoholic drinks were 1’200 Yen (~10 USD). It looks pricy but the entrance fee is kind of included, so I personally think it isn’t that expensive. A staff explained the rules how to behave in front of the owls. Afterwards we could touch and have a look at the cute birdies. The small ones you could put on your head or on your shoulder or arm. For the big ones you had to put on gloves and it was only allowed to put them on the arm (cause of their claws). The cafe was absolutely worth it and may I should have a look at the owl cafe in Osaka, since my main travel destination is Kansai.
outside of the cafe the drink menu: inside the cafe (upstairs) inside the cafe (downstairs) You can’t touch the owls in the green zone!
