One day when we were in Japan and April was out of town we stopped by a very unusual cafe. It was an owl cafe! Japan has a number of animal cafes: cat, owl, dog, goat, falcon, reptile and bird.
April had pointed out the owl cafe which she had not visited and we decided that we would give it a go. You pay about 1500 yen (about $15.00), have a drink, tea or coke and then get to spend an hour with the owls, holding them and "talking" to them. I'll let my pictures do most of the talking, except to say that the first owl bit me, didn't hurt, but it scared me. Liked the last owl, the barn owl best.
