The Owl Statue is a stone owl statue located in the north passageway of the east exit of Ikebukuro Station. Like the Hachiko statue in Shibuya, it is used as a meeting place in Ikebukuro.
The Name comes from a cross between an Ikebukuro and an owl (fukurou).
In Ikebukuro, too, owls have become a symbol of the city, and can be seen in the station and throughout the city.
The most famous of these, the Ikebukuro Owl Statue, was installed in 1987 to commemorate the inauguration of the JR line, and now three baby owls have also been installed.
