Opened on February 10, 2014, the Kotori Café is inhabited by a diverse flock of parrots, parakeets, sparrows and cockatoos. After finishing their coffee, tea and special bird-themed pastries, patrons can spend five minutes in the interactive bird zone located at the back of the café for a nominal charge of 500¥. A staff member will provide assistance by explaining the shop’s rules and demonstrate the proper handling of the shop’s more than 20 resident birds.

The café is relatively small and your time is limited to one hour, unfortunately. The menu items range in price from 800-1,500¥ and are very tasty. There is a gift shop associated with the café that sells numerous bird-themed paraphernalia.
