Let’s go to Cat Island, Tashirojima!

Written by Yuni Nurul Azzizah
Tashiorjima, one of a kind, unique island that has more cat population than human. Located in Ishinomaki City, Miyagi. This is my first experience to visit this island, I wanted to visit it long time ago, but there weren’t any chance to go.

To go to this feline island, we need to ride on an hour ferry Ajishima port.
When we arrived, the cats welcome us with cute expression. The cats here are very friendly, even though they are wild cat type (not the pet one).

They like to play and spoiled, so we need to stop almost in every turn to rub their back and played with them.
It was very nice experience for us, skip for just a moment to the beautiful remote island give us more energy and indescribable calm, even our prophet Muhammad SAW, loves to play with a cat.
So, please come to this island, and feel the serenity.
