Tashirojima is a small island in Japan with a weird population. No, the 100 human inhabitants are not what I’m talking about. It’s just that there are more cats here than humans. The island is known as Cat Island because of its thriving stray cat population. Locals believe that cats bring wealth and good luck, that’s why they feed them and take care of them. Heck, they even have a Neko-jinja, a cat shrine. Also, there are no dogs on the island and visitors are not allowed to bring one – for obvious reasons.

Why do I have a weird feeling that the internet people are going to book their next out-of-country trip to Japan?
