I'm visiting Tokyo in late September and really want to visit an owl cafe. I've heard that it is best to go with someone who speaks Japanese as they usually give instructions etc only in Japanese. Are there any humane and well-kept Owl Cafes that can speak to me in English too?

For those who wonder ...

    @NateEldredge If you think that's impressive, try the polar bear café
