Owl cafe

Reviewed by: points, 2016/12/04

I find it hard to locate the owl cafe. The Google map bring us to the place, we passby there a few times but still never realise we have reached. They have a poster to indicate the owl cafe is at level 2. We only manage to spot the place when the shop attendant bring one owl out to get crowd.

Will suggest to have a meal before you go. There is no food, only drink available.

It is a very small shop with around 10 owls. Big and small cute owls.

There is English instructions video for tourists to follow.

The shop attendants are very friendly and polite. They help us to position the owls, and try all sorts of way to get the owls to look at our camera direction.

Saw another guest cleaning his cloth before us. Luckily, we did not have any dropping on us.

There is a small area selling the souvenirs.

The shop attendant always spray disinfectant on our hand before we left.

Overall, it is fun to interact with the owls.

Cool experience

Reviewed by: SSK, 2016/10/18

We were the only ones around in the timeslot so we have plenty of room to move about and got to interact with all 5 owls on 'duty'. The staff explained the rules to us in quite good English and was friendly and attentive. It was a unique experience as we would never get a chance like this in our country.

Great place

Reviewed by: Gigi, 2016/07/17

We really enjoyed getting to interact with the owls. The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable about the owls. We read over the rules before handling the owls and then we got to play with them. You let the staff know which owl you wanted to hold and they would help you with it. They also took pictures of us. I highly recommend this place if you want to interact with these beautiful creatures:)

Cute owls

Reviewed by: Natassja , 2016/05/26

The Owls were adorable and we were able to interact with them for about an hour. The staff were very friendly and communicated with us in English so we could understand better.

Overall it was a nice experience however I couldn't help feeling sad for the Owls as they were all tied to a little string and forced to sit there while us humans pet and hold them. I asked the staff if they are allowed to fly and where they stay at night and she told me no they don't fly and they are just kept in the same room all the time. It didn't feel right especially as some of the Owls kept trying to fly but couldn't.

The staff seemed great and the Owls were well cared for - I enjoyed being able to interact with such a beautiful bird however left feeling sad for allowing such a place to exist...they deserve to be free.

It was a HOOT! Alot of Fun!

Reviewed by: Cyn-D, 2016/04/13

Low key experience-little kept secret hole-n-the-wall place which made it enjoyable. Not crowded. Staff was fun and did well enough speaking English. Owls are wonderful creatures-very mellow. Would have liked to have some information of the types of owls on an information sheet and their names to learn more about them. We did ask questions and staff had answers but you are in awe of the owls that you don't realize till after that you wanted to ask more questions! It was a fun experience-highly recommend it!

AMAZING NIGHT

Reviewed by: LO HSINCHUN, 2016/03/07

As we watch the nippon TV show in Taiwan , it's really incredible in our country .... We just could see the owl in the zoo , and there are 10-20 meters between us . We can't see the owl face to face , and even touch them .... however , I do like to enjoy the Owl Family in my KYOTO journey . Owls are really beautiful and cute , and the waiters are very kind and perfessional ... Really thanks U , Owl Family
