Owl Café

Similar to the cat cafes, there exist owl cafes that are gaining popularity in Japan. In Fukuoka, you can find one such café in Kawabata Shopping Arcade near Kushida Shrine. Here, you can see several owls outside their cages and take photos or even touch these owls. During the daytime, they are not very active and usually allow you to touch and lift them on your arms. A novel idea and something unique to Japan, the owl cafes are beginning to attract locals and tourists alike. The relaxing atmosphere combined with the presence of the owls makes for a very popular attraction.
