Cats from Tokyo {Japan}

In the fall, especially with Halloween around the corner, it's nice to stroll through a cemetery to soak up the creepy atmosphere.

 If you're in Tokyo, you may want to visit the Aoyama Cemetery. Not only does it contain the graves of many notable Japanese, it's also the home of many stray cats that never fail to greet cat-minded tourists.

Fun fact: the Aoyama Cemetery's most famous grave is that of Hachiko, the dutiful dog who inspired the movie Hachi: a Dog's Tale with Richard Gere.

More info about the Aoyama Cemetery on TripAdvisor.

P.S. Have you seen the cats from the Ginza shopping district in Tokyo (warning: cuteness overload) and the creepy cat of the Numazu cemetery?

Read my horror novel Drowned Sorrow to get into the mood for Halloween!

"Drowned Sorrow is definitely creepy. Possibly even crawly. I wouldn't sleep in the same room with it." -- S.P. Reviews

"If Jaws kept you away from the ocean, Drowned Sorrow will keep you away from any water." -- The Literary Lioness

"It's everything horror fiction should be: creepy, scary, suspenseful, and yet also touching." -- Suko's Notebook

  5. I loved seeing your photos. I presume these are feral cats, so it's always interesting to see them making their way in their world.

  11. Les chats de l'Asie sont généralement beaux, fins, aristocratiques. Et le Japon ... en est le parfait contre exemple. C'est assez étonnant.

  13. The kitty with the beard and goatee is so unusual and fascinating. His ears even have a bit of a curl. Another place Mom says she'd like to visit. Our dad has been to Japan at least fifteen times, but Mom has never been. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
