This is the island where cats are more than humans. It is the island of Okishima, the only inhabited island on Lake Bioa, the largest freshwater lake in Japan and one of the oldest lakes on the planet.
It is also the home of such a large number of cats that sometimes when they want to refer to the island, they call it the \”Cat City\”.
Kittens walk around on the island, sometimes with a fish in their mouth as Okishima ιsland is mainly inhabited by fishermen. About four hundred fishermen live today on the island and they are descendants of exiled samurai.
