Tourists from all over Japan have been swarming to Aoshima, a small island with a tiny fishing community, all because this once looked over island has been overrun by cats!

The cats were originally bought over to deal with the mice that were plaguing the fishing boats, but have since developed a small community of their own. In all there is over 120 cats, who are occasionally fed by the 22 locals but mainly by the cat loving tourists that come to see them.

You can see why this place has now been nicknamed “Cat Island”.
