After our little tour around Asakusa, we decided to drop by the Hawkeye Bird Cafe located near Tokyo Sky Tree! Unlike most owl cafes in Tokyo, Hawkeye is unique because they also house hawks and falcons in addition to the standard owls. The entrance is a little nondescript so it’s best to just search for directions on Google Maps!
The hawks are a little too aggressive for me with their huge flapping wings and sharp talons so I opted to just stand at the sidelines and watch the other guests interact with these majestic raptors instead.
Cheryl the animal-whisperer. She proudly proclaimed that all animals like her while they don’t really seem to like me…… T___T
My favourite owl is the white barn owl named Lady Gaga. She was given that name because she likes to do a weird little side-to-side shake that made it seem like she is dancing all the time.
For ¥1,500 you get a drink and an hour to interact with the birds in the cafe. I think it’s pretty worth it especially if you’re an animal lover yourself or if you’re just looking for a unique new experience!
