Cats' Heaven

A little break from the earthquake stories.

I saw these cats at a Buddhist temple. It looks like they are used to seeing people, and they were so good at ignoring them!

Most temples and Shinto shrines in Japan are basically open for 24 hours a day. So, they must be good places for cats.

Sometimes, young and brave university students go into the shrines and drink beers. That is one thing I haven't done in my life; having beer at a shrine at night.

I was very happy to see these cats living so freely. It's the way they should be.

A lot to learn from them!
