Cat island

Tashirojima island

Tashirojima island in Japan has become known as « Cat Island » due to the large stray cat population that thrives as a result of the local belief that feeding cats will bring wealth and good fortune.

There is a small cat shrine, known as Neko-jinja, in the middle of the island.
