Now I found great museum for cat lover "Matsuyama art museum" in Sosa-shi, Chiba prefecture.
There are many statues in the garden.
It's like the world of "Princess Mononoke"
Gazebo. I want to have a nap here.
Stone shaped like a fish. Is it cat's food?
Art work of cat makes me excited.
At the garden in front of the museum, I finally found a cat!!!
Kitty is also there!
Cats are free to walk in the museum, too.
After I went around in the museum, museum owner served me a cup of tea. As I said to her I really love cats and found there in a cat magazine, she called her cats to the garden.
Mii san. She is the boss of this museum.
He had longhair when he was a kitty but it changed to shorthair after molting in summer.
All cats were abandoned when kitty. He is father in raw of all cats.
The museum is surrounded by rice paddy. Old brother goes there and gets crawfish as kitties' toy.
The boss always looks sharply at me but I could pet her without being attacked.
The museum holds "Cat exhibition" every year. Over 2000 cat lovers come to the exhibition.
The owner said I should come again with lunch box and spend whole day next time.
There is a great spot worth going to for cat lovers even it's out-of-the-way place.
