Once you get inside you will get a menu with pictures (and English). You'll have to order a drink which will be about 600 yen per person for a juice or coffee. I know you are not going there to dine and wine, but the food they serve is quite good- a set of curry and a soft drink is just about 1,300 yen. You can also have a beer and grab some french fries or sake since you are not going to be driving :)
You eat before you touch the owls, it's a safety thing, just keep that in mind.

While you are enjoying whatever you decided to order you'll have time to observe the owls, which they have in a glassed in areas. Sometimes there are people who own an owl as a pet and bring it to the shop to be around other birds, just like you would bring your dog to the park. So you might get to see one sitting at the next table.
As I said earlier children are welcome- babies and all ages, 3-4 year olds and up are allowed to hold an owl if they are brave enough and respect the animal. They have a few really small birds that don't look that intimidating- rather really cute. While you are enjoying your food/drinks it's a good time to explain to your children how to behave around the owls and to see if they are scared or excited.
You will be given a leather glove to protect your arm and the staff will bring the owl to you. Be advised the birds are usually calm and nice, but they can loose balance and start flapping their big wings, or try to peck you if you get in their face. Again be very careful and respectful, that will help you and the owl to have a good experience. You can take pictures and videos, just make sure your flash is off. Staff will be always near by in case you need help.
Fukuro-Sabou is not just a tourist attraction but a very nice home for those birds, people who work there respect them and will put them to rest if they are looking tired. The owners understand how tiering it can be for the owls to "work' all day, so they swap them very frequently to insure they are happy and in mood to meet you. Those people raise owls for living and understand their needs very well.
They have a lot of birds as they also sell them as pets, which allows for the birds to take a break and be replaced by other ones.
In other owl cafes you can often see sad looking owls, because they get touched and annoyed by people without a break and this is very sad.
Another thing I like to mention is that young children under 8 might not be allowed in other owl cafes, but the one in Kokubinji welcomes all ages. So if you are planing to visit another cafe make sure your kids are welcome first.
