1.Kyoto no Fukuro no Mori/京都のフクロウの森

Kyoto no Fukurou no mori Literally translated as the Owls’ Forest, Fukurou no Mori really is a mini-forest in the middle of Kyoto rather than a cafe.

The mini-forest inside this modern building hosts around 15 living-owls of different kinds and characters.

You can also have the experience of an owl riding on your hand with a guidance of staff.

There is a particularly popular owl, named “White” which is a popular breed of the Eurasian eagle owl.

Its distinct erect ear tufts are so cute yet comical, and its big eyes chase you as you walk around him.

And, yes, of course, there is also a snowy owl named Hedwig, just like the one in Harry Potter.

You can enter Fukurou no Mori with the entrance fee of between 11:30 to 19:30.
