For cat loves, there is an small island in Japan where cats are roaming everywhere. This feline paradise, called Aoshima, is located off the coast of Matsuyama city, and inhabited by 15 people and hundreds of cats.

The island can be accessed by ferry and you will be welcome by a huge number of cats at port. They are not afraid of strangers and come close to you and rub their faces against your feet. There are no restaurants or vending machines here, and you should follow one rule: no feeding.

Best place on earth !! Also bring as much food as you can - so you can leave some/donate for the times the tourists aren't there to feed them. (Even though the locals feed them anyway). Really lovely cats !!!
