We had a wonderful experience at the cafe!

There were more owls than we expected and most of them were so friendly~!

The staff were also friendly and well-experienced. They helped us a lot throughout the whole session.

I loved it! The staff was really nice and they knew what they were doing. The owls were properly taken care of. And the drink that came with the package (i got hot choco) was delicious.

Great for Owl Lovers!

Reviewed by: Joyce, 2018/01/28

The owls were so cute and the staff was super cheerful and helpful! They explained everything really well in English and Japanese and they made sure you knew how to handle the owls safely. They seem to take good care of their owls and make sure you don't disturb the ones that are resting. The cafe seems really popular so reserving online made sure we had spots for the time we wanted.
Tip: There is a similar owl cafe with the same name nearby so make sure you know which one you're going to.

1st owl cafe experience

Reviewed by: Ximerboy, 2018/01/14

Shop staff were very friendly and it helps greatly with english introduction of owls and their names and to do or not to do. Owls were very cute and mostly friendly to touch. Enjoy the experience and the warm drink was nice too(it was winter).

Raw chicken parts used to feed the owls. Boys were put off by the chicken eye! They told me not worth feeding but enjoyed the photography session. Very organised process and controlled group size so all had chance to take pics.

Reviewed by: Pamela, 2018/01/06

Up close with the owls big and small. Good thing is it is limited to a reasonable group of people only so everyone has a chance to take pic with each owl. Very structured process.


  • This one is too big to be held so can only stroke and lean near to take pic

First time with owls!

Reviewed by: Khale, 2017/11/26

We had a fantastic time with the owls! We arrive slightly late but they accommodated to us. We also chose the feeding plan so we managed to feed the owls and the staff were assisting to take pictures of us as well. They were very kind to the owls, which greatly pleased us and the owls did not attack us when they placed the owls on our hands, shoulders and even head. Overall, I would greatly recommend this place to those who loves owls.

I visited this place last Tuesday with my mother, it was an absolutely delightful experience. The staff was very helpful, patient and enthusiastic! The owls are adorable and very tame to carry and pat.

The instructions was provided very clearly and easy to understand.

I am hoping to book another session during my next trip to Japan!

I highly recommend everyone to participate in this activity. It is worth it and a unique experience you will not forget!

One of the highlights of our trip!

Reviewed by: Brian Ellis, 2017/11/17

The hour spent at Owl Family Osaka was one of our fondest memories of the city, and we were all grateful to have the photos to relive it for ourselves and for our friends.

The staff was patient, informative and FUNNY. One of the two hosts spoke perfect english and there was no hassle managing the logistics.

The owls themselves are adorable and docile, and perched on hands/shoulders/heads for photos and petting without a problem. I wouldn't necessarily recommend the experience for younger children, but for adults it was about as cute an experience as you can get, and definitely time better spent than at a cat cafe.

Probably common knowledge to any traveler of Japan, but as typical of most 'cafe' experiences in Japan, the drinks and such are basically just the cover charge to get in. The drinks were cute, but your drink cost goes into the facilities rather than the actual beverage.

I recommend scheduling a day when you can pay a small premium to feed them, as it'll likely be in the evening with a smaller crowd. Go to the area about 90 minutes ahead of time and relax with a cup of coffee at the nearby Moto Coffee, on a patio overlooking Osaka's river, then take a ten minute stroll through the riverside Nakanoshima Park on the way to the cafe. It'll be one of the most perfect evenings of your trip.

Fun experience--the owls are beautiful

Reviewed by: Stephanie, 2017/11/04

Where else will you be able to have an owl sit on your head? The owls were trained and well-behaved, so no one got pecked. Of course, it helps if you follow the petting rules and only touch the owls where you're allowed to.

For potterheads, they actually have robes, glasses, and wand available if you want to take pictures. I didn't take advantage of the opportunity, but I appreciated that it was available. The experience is 90% owl and 10% cafe, so if you're not going for the owls (just accompanying someone else), you'll probably be a bit disappointed.

Owl Family Cafe was fun and children loves those owls.

Reviewed by: Y.W. Fung, 2017/08/03

I found the Owl Family Cafe has 2 prices for adult, Yen$1500 (non-alcohol drink) & Yen$1700 (alcohol drink) , but Veltra only has one price Yen$1700. It did not allow us to choose. For the Owl Family Cafe, we had a great time there, it worth to visit and meet the owls. The staffs in the Owl Family Cafe are very nice.

This price is the cheapest price compared to other booking sites.

It is very difficult to find this place with google maps (unfortunately we were late) so I recommend giving yourself alot of time to get there. Once inside though it was amazing. The staff speak English very well and are so friendly! The owls are so cute and soft! They have lots of personality. You can hold them and take many pictures. The best owl is Potato!!!

The real cost of this activity is 1500yen, but the website provided ease if reservation. The website also said you must print out the voucher which caused me a massive headache and when we arrived we didn't need the printed voucher at all! So annoying. But the owls were so cute and the staff very friendly and kind.

Upclose experience with Owls

Reviewed by: Jerine, 2017/06/18

The assistants were very helpful in guiding on what to take note, how to hold the Owls and how to let them. If you are looking for something different, this would be cool. You get to see the owls upclose, take photographs and pet/hold them (on the arm/shoulder/head). It's child friendly too seeing that families are here for the experience.
