18 Photos Of A Cat Island That Will Remind You How To Dream
If you're ever feeling down, just remember that some day, you may finally visit this remote Japanese island overrun with cats.
Hey there, what's wrong? Don't you know there's an island in Japan where cats outnumber humans six to one?
It's Aoshima Island, in southern Japan's Ehime prefecture.
Did you have a bad day? Then remember that Aoshima Island is a place that exists that you may someday travel to.
You may have had a rough morning, but nothing can take this new dream away from you.
These cats are waiting to meet you.
This guy's like, "Cheer up, I'm a feral cat here to brighten your day."
There are no forgotten dreams on Aoshima Island.
There are only cats.
This is village nurse and city official Atsuko Ogata, and she's here to feed the cats.
Some day, you could grow up to be just like her.
This could be you.
You could sit on this wall with these cats.
So why be down today?
Soon, you'll gather your savings, fly to Japan, get one of the twice daily ferries to Aoshima Island, and say to this little one, "Hello, old friend."
And all these feral cats will take a break from their in-fighting to smile and say, "Welcome, Steve."
"We've been waiting for you."
"So what did you bring us for lunch?"
Thank you, Aoshima Island.
