Reservation required. If you would like to see the owl while sitting in the chair relaxedly, the 2nd shop Ginza owl is recommended !

Easily accessible, near Ikebukuro Station. Better to make a reservation as it’s a small unit. There’s a wide variety of owls in different sizes. The smaller ones (palm sized) seem well taken care of but the bigger ones seem trapped in a small room. They...More

We decided to go because we thought it would be a cool experience, but when we arrived we couldn't help but feel guilty. There are roughly 20 owls, in a roughly 300sq ft room, with 6-8 visitors and 4-5 handlers. It felt busy, and it...More
