 October 2019.
I went on a day trip to Tashiro Island
in Ishinomaki City, Miyagi Prefecture
on a nice day in autumn.

Tashirojima is famous as “Nekojima”,
and it is a small island, but
more than 100 cats live there.

According to the clerk of the old private house cafe, w
hich the population of the island is about 60 people,
so it's an island with cats overwhelmingly more than people.

As the population of the island is decreasing
year by year due to depopulation, we are worried about the future,
but it seems that NPO corporations are also doing is
land revitalization activities to protect
the rich nature and traditional culture.
