Thanks, Kotaku, for bringing us these adorable photos from inside one of Japan’s hot new owl cafes. “Forget cat cafes. Or black cat cafes. Or penguin bars. Japan’s latest novelty cafe is the ‘fukurou cafe’ (フクロウカフェ), or the ‘owl cafe,’” reports Kotaku. Yes, there are live owls in these cafes which you can hold whilst sipping coffee. Here’s some other stuff we loved today:
