Tashirojima Island is a small island located in Miyagi Prefecture, Japan. Since ancient times, cats have been taken care of, and it is called “Cat Island” because there are more cats than residents on the island. You can meet a lot of cats while walking. Perhaps because they were raised with the love of many people, they are very friendly and kind. “The coexistence of humans and cats” is the culture of Tashirojima. The charm of this island is that cats and humans live freely. Humans can’t decide what makes a cat happy, but I hope cats can live peacefully.
