Well, if you were in another country, this place would not have the authorization to exist. I thought it was a cozy cafe with some owls around but it turned to be a true nightmare. Firstly, it’s not a cafe but a micro themed park...More

I am guessing and I hope the owls, birds and animals there are well taken care of but I feel sad looking at them living in this very small place. I also think it's pretty unhygienic for the animals and birds to be in such...More

Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old

a variety of different museums and galleries. At
Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the
grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed
alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at
the end of the year, when many people go on shopping
