[Update: moved to Ueno] Some two dozen finches, parakeets and other small birds are on display at this second, smaller branch of Omotesando's Kotori Cafe, located right across the street from the Ghibli Museum. The birds occupy a couple of glassed-in areas looking out onto the cafe, and provide a lively backdrop for a post-Ghibli coffee break. A coffee and cake set runs Y1620, and the wide-ranging shop area sells everything from bird-themed calendars and coffee mugs to parrot plush toys.
