“Oh Japan, you’re so quirky”

I have a feeling that 7/10 times when newspapers or TV report on a new, strange “trend” in Japan it’s actually just an isolated incident that is blown out of proportion because western people want to read about how strange and quirky Japan is. Like the thing with the Owl Café. Is that really a trend? Is there really more than just one owl café? Really? I honestly don’t know. I can’t read Japanese and I don’t know any Japanese person that I can ask for an honest answer.
