Humans are outnumbered by cats 6 to 1 on Tashirojima. The small island island survived a devastating tsunami in 2011. Superstitious people believe the numerous cats – which are considered lucky in Japan – protected Tashirojima from the tsunami. Cats were originally brought to the island during the Edo Period to protect silk-worms – which were raised for the the textile industry – from mice. Now a modern campsite featuring adorable cat-shaped cabins is available for use during Summer months. What did you think?
