This is a photo of a cat I met on one of Japan’s cat islands.
I love cats, so when I was living in Japan I made a point of trying to visit as many of the 13 or so cat islands as I could (usually with a pocket or bag full of cat food).
One of my favourite islands, with a rich history, was actually on a lake! Okishima sits on lake Biwa and homes the seven descendent families of samurai who escaped a civil war in Kyoto, and a lot of stray cats.
This gorgeous, friendly feline lay on our route around the island, near the resident’s homes.
I took this photo on 8th June 2017.
This item is 8×10 inches. It is printed on Fujicolour Crystal Archive paper, in a matt finish.
