Billed as a "raptorial photo and snack bar," Hawkeye offers a couple dozen raptors, both hawks and owls, for visitor photo sessions (including pictures with the nearby Tokyo Skytree in the background). You can even borrow a tripod if you need one.
You can also pet a few of the birds (they seem to enjoy it) - but be sure to ask the staff which ones are safe to touch. (We were informed that one usually friendly bird was feeling a bit moody because he was molting.) The owner first became interested in these birds after encountering them through his hobby of paragliding, and now he raises them from hatchlings.
