A little throw back on my trip to Osaka last Nov!
There were few activities that were essential to my Osaka bucket list. Other than devouring gratuitous amounts of food, the most important was to visit an Owl Cafe. ( I’m in love with owls)
Initially I planned to visit Owl Family Cafe located at Tenjinbashi,, which it is a bit far from where I’m staying. One night , while I’m hunting for street food with my family around Dotonbori , I found this little cafe while I’m walking along the shop lots and noticed there is an owl statues seating there and google about it! And yes it’s an owl cafe… It only 5-10 mins walk from Shinsaibashi where I stayed during my visit 🙂
I’m so excited when I stepped in to the cafe, reason is because this is the first time I can be so closed with them!! All you need to do is to pay JPY1500 (RM55) adult /JPY1000 (RM36.50) kid, for a drink of choice from the beverages menu and you get to hang around in the cafe for an hour to interact and photo session with all the owls. Before you can “chit chat” with the owl , of course there are a several rules you will need to follow and the staff will brief through it .Depending on your luck ,wherever the staff is English/Mandarin speaker,but don’t worry they do have a print out written in English!!! If you would like to touch or play with the owls first you will need to sanitize your hand!
After all the briefing and etc, now is time for you explore the cafe!! Actually it’s a small cafe with a glance and there are about 5-6 small table for you to put your bag and drink. Don’t worry, you can just leave your belonging there; and start interact with all the adorable owl!!!
Great horned owl is my all time favorite!!! They look so cool and arrogant all the time…. but too bad I didn’t managed to take a proper photo with them, cause they are distracted by the construction noise out.
This is the only photo I managed to take with them…
of course there are several owls in the cafe , here they are…
Momo chan – the tiny owl
Ling chan – another type of tiny owl
Of course there is a star in the cafe, who just move to Osaka from Hokkaido …. and this during my visit he is only 8 months old …. His name is Chris, the snowy owl!! also he is also the type of owl you see in Harry Potter!! He is so active, and understand from the staff reason he being so active is because he is still very young and still not familiar with the new place!
Chris, the star of the month!! He is so cute and his head can turn 360′ , don’t be scare if you happen to see them….
I wish I can bring him home….
The last photo before we leave Lucky Owl Cafe!!! I will be back …. to see all these “lazy” birds!
