Owl Family Kyoto
There is a shop in Kyoto where you can meet real owls who welcome you with such a sweet behavior. This kind of animal shop is also unique in Japan. In “Owl Family” (“Fukuro-no Mise” in Japanese), you can interact with owls and also do shopping. When you enter the shop, you may notice that the living owl is welcoming you in the center of the floor (Please do not touch the owl. If you join the petting session, you can touch them after the instruction)! There are various kinds of owl items such as ...morepost cards, bath items, ornaments and more. They are all pretty and some of the items are designed in the image of the owls in the shop! Please find your favorites!
