[Animal tourism: Cat island] Japan: Ojima, Okinawa

Animal Attraction

Oujima is a small island in Okinawa Prefecture. Although it has about 900 inhabitants, it is known as an island with a large number of cats. I don’t know the exact number of cats, but cats live everywhere, not at the level of 5 or 10. Ojima is originally a very active fishing area, and its economy is relatively active. And many tourists visit this island for cats, and the cats on this island are very accustomed to humans, so they will soon fall in love with tourists.
