My blog consists of varying things that are of interest to me or are related to areas of personal study, including but not limited to...victorian era, gothic lolita, funeral rituals/memento mori, owls, peacocks, moths, mythology, alchemy, magick/occult pratctices, doom metal, black metal, rarities, old books, anatomy, botany, vintage ads, art, sacred geometry, weird/bizarre things, and much more than I could ever possibly list. I try to find lots of new original stuff to share when I can.

Forget cat cafes. Or black cat cafes. Or penguin bars. Japan’s latest novelty cafe is the “fukurou cafe” (フクロウカフェ), or the “owl cafe.”
Owl cafes like Fukurou no Mise (“Owl Shop”) and Tori no Iru Cafe (“The Cafe with Birds”) started getting noticed online in Japan late last year.
This summer saw more owl cafes open, and currently there are owl cafes like Fukurou Sabou (“Owl Teahouse”) in Tokyo, Owl Family in Osaka, and Crew, another owl cafe in Osaka, among others.
