It was a wonderful experience to see the Owls up close and personal. They all seemed to be well care for and loved by the staffs. We popped by unexpectedly and was very lucky that they could accommodate us.

Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.

I would have to say unfortunately not. It’s accessed by a very narrow stairway or a tiny elevator. 😔
