Japan counts around a dozen cat islands, but Aoshima is one of the most popular. Cats outnumber humans six to one on Aoshima. They sleep in abandoned houses or strut about in the quiet fishing village. Ferries go twice daily to this cat island, that has recently seen a steep rise in tourism.

  2. Wow, that's amazing and they are beautiful ...though I hope they are getting spayed and neutered.

  5. Cat islands are great ideas but they really should spay and neuter as many as possible.

  6. The first two photos Are exceptional. These sweeties all look very much related to one another. I'll stay off my soapbox. The look well fed and healthy.

  7. Gorgeous photos and such lovely cats. If I am not mistaken I shared a video about Cat Island on my blog quite a while back. I love this post! :)

  8. The first picture is amazing! I've seen several videos and pictures of Japan's cat islands and I'm amazed every time. I've difficulties imaging how this works in pratice. I'm glad to hear that tourism has increased - this probobly implies that the cats will be cared for. Could be a great win-win situation - the cats can have their island and they make money to be cared for.

  9. So many cats and they are all posing for your camera especially the 2nd and 3rd photos. With so many cats in the island, I am sure there will be no rats around.

  11. That is a lot of cats. Can I live there? I want to live there.

    ReplyDelete
  12. So many cats! And so many of them are gingers. I guess that comes from the breeding.

  17. That is hard to believe the photos aren't photo shopped, how crazy would that be. Can you imagine if you had a cat phobia, it would be a nightmare lol Wonder if it is really smelly there?

  19. Wow, that's so cool. I would love to visit cat island one day.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Aww! They look pretty well-fed to me.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Well, even though they look well fed indeed, I have a problem with the fact that they will not get spayed or neutered and thus they will multiply and run into big problems sooner or later.
    Hugs,

  30. Complètement incroyable. En plus ils se ressemblent beaucoup ces chats.
    Les japonais sont incroyables avec les animaux ; capables des pires abominations, ou du contraire.

  32. Hard to believe this is a real place! And I though one of my childhood neighbors was a cat lady. The good thing is that all the cats look well groomed and fed.

    ReplyDelete

  36. That is a hell of a lot of cats, makes for amazing photography but one has to wonder if them breeding out of control is a good thing or not

  37. Holy cats!! I love kitties, but this would be a bit much, I'm afraid. Great post, though and fun pictures!

    ReplyDelete
  38. wow - that is a lot of cats. but look at them... they all look pretty healthy and well fed. I would imagine they can get their fill of seafood on an island.

  42. A LOT of cats. That's a scary number of cats!

    ReplyDelete
  43. That just makes me sad. They all look very healthy and cared for, but the risk of a disease devastating the colony seems significant.

  44. Wow! That is a lot of cats!
