Owl Cafe Akiba Fukurou Tokyo Preservation Project
Thank you for visiting to this page! I hope you can watch this video.
History of Owl Cafe Akiba Fukurou
We are the duo behind Akiba Fukurou, which we opened in Tokyo, Japan in 2014 to advocate for living a more fulfilling life through interactions with owls.
Akiba Fukurou was our dream as a married couple.
We both loved owls, and owned a number of owls already. Rather than the feeling of raising animals, it was natural to us to treat them like family.
Not only do we love animals on an emotional level,but we also value the perspective of animal welfare.
This philosophy has been well-received and thus far we have welcomed 100,000 guests from over 100 countries.
It is thanks to the support of our guests and fans from all over the world that we were able to celebrate our sixth anniversary together.
Please allow us this opportunity to express our deepest gratitude to everyone.
A Harsh Situation (The COVID-19 pandemic)
However, we no longer have guests from overseas, and visits from domestic guests have tapered to next to nothing due to COVID-19. Our revenue has dramatically decreased.
It costs about 1 million yen a month (Approximately $ 9,000) to feed 40 owls and maintain the store, and with no clear end in sight for pandemic, the business continuity of Akiba Fukurou has become extremely difficult.
We Want to Protect the Owls
Our feelings for our owls won’t change!
Even in this situation, we will do everything we can to protect the owls we have raised like our own children since they were babies.
We strongly wish to be a cafe where you can have a wonderful experience once the world returns to normal.
