About Owls

Owls are nocturnal birds of prey, belonging to the order Strigiformes. They are called "the professors of the forest" and "philosophers of the forest."
Their size ranges from 50 to 62 centimeters in length and they weigh anywhere from 500 to 1,300 grams.

Five species of owls exist in Japan: the Yezo Ural Owl, Tohoku Owl, Ural Owl, Moniyamae, and Kyushu Owl.
The hooting of owls can sometimes be heard as far as several kilometers away.

Summary of Japan's Owl Cafes
