  •  Location is a bit inconvenient but can be visited by car, bicycle, bus. Selling my bills are (could you actually donate form).  Especially the temple at terrible as a souvenir, a little cute cat pattern is recommended in. Lucky cat comes much depends on. They're still not too fluffy and touch. Let's just doing for the unfortunate cat Temple, and from donations.

  • Simply cat Temple, welcomed by a lot of cat. It's very original, Nora? It was the lie to plump and very bland has. Their hair is beautiful. Also managed properly. During the lecture for the bus to set aside was hot? Sneak CAT had got so worried about driver. (Lol) or under the car when you leave, or start very slowly, was careful. Has a really bland. This sermon and Zazen experience we also. Experience Zazen, basi was! I thought of, but completely without the spoken about Zen breathing method and its advantages. Zen also useful in day to day life in the showers. Something neat. Let's talk about. Old temples like a bit disappointing, the new temple is? , Including the sermon and the Zen experience, cat and touch, it was a good experience.

  • Small temple grounds, but overall a nice atmosphere. I hoped to see more cats though the summer heat probably kept them away.
  • Take a normal temple. Drop cats to attract tourists. Sell overpriced products and install donation boxes saying that it's to take care of the cats (looks like they eating like tigers :p). It's alright but I wish a cooler and nicer temple did that, at least. You also need to be lucky to see the cats strolling around the temple, they were hiding under the benches when I went.
  • I went to 11 months. Cold light rain was falling, but Japan cats are resistant to cold, or even also a tough half-spiral or 20 dogs too would come outside. Curled up on the cold ground children's sleep. Strong! Go from this solid cold and food go check watering time. Line 1, innocently eating cats I Kozu, is a sight to see. Way back when, has kittens aboard the car home. But I went down once in a while. We bid you farewell as seen on TV is a Director and they was not.

  • It's not cat is going. That and if that were so, the temple's efforts are not working. Here's cat is more common cat quite human familiar and the friendly. Cats pester not be angry Pat hug because I was suddenly touched from behind while standing or not. Sitting on the Chair has prepared or stone ' come? "The question is the correct answer. A monster can't restrain themselves, chasing the cat is giving the disbelief is over?!

  • It is a temple of the Soto sect known as cat Temple. This is not a situation finds a foster cat Temple, so overflowing with cats at all times. I think healthy living in a prosperous environment. Comes to tanjoji Temple, which is the birthplace of the founder.
