Falconer's Cafe: Tokyo Kichijoji

Located just down the block from the Ghibli Museum, this cafe features a large, tile-lined aviary space where you can observe the owner's flock of falcons, hawks and owls. The shop attracts a community of Tokyo bird-lovers, with some customers bringing their own birds along to socialize. The cafe's small food menu features curry rice and stir-fried ginger pork, or of course you can just have coffee.
