Shibuya Festival Cat
I have seen most domestic animals I can think of at festivals in Japan, mostly perched on the shoulders of their owners or on a leash behind them – ferrets, dogs, pigs, monkey, parrots, etc. but by far the most photogenic of the many festival loving animals of Japan are the cats – there seems to be something about them that makes you want to dress them up in a cute dress and take out to town! Here’s one such festival cat I found in Shibuya, this summer. His owner must have used to being photographed so I clicked away! Now, if only I could find a donkey in a jinbei or a lizard in a loincloth? Enjoy festival cat! You might remember an earlier and even prettier festival cat from Asakusa.
