  • Soon I learned that Japan had Islands with cats (in plural) I looked for more info. This island seemed more "accessible" in my plans, because there are others that are closer to what is the territory of Japan and should not do so many combinations, but I wanted to see the greatest possible diversity of cities. My journey from Hachioji (Tokyo) was long, but combinations that allows you an as efficient transport system makes everything more enjoyable. Once in Ishinomaki, you should go to the port, hence leaving a ferry at fixed hours, calculate well because they are not many and you can stay without return passage. Stay overnight on the island is complicated, because it offers many facilities. On the ferry are as two hours to reach the first port, agrees to alight in one and back out the other. It is an island with several quiet alleys, surrounded by cats as soon as you arrive at the port. While it is true that many cats are hurt, also it is them is controlled by veterinarians, but cats fighting each other. Most are accustomed to human contact and they are going to bring food and water, you should carry two small containers where serve them because there is nothing. Views, beyond the cats, are really beautiful. You have to be prepared to walk, I went in the summer (July 2016) and Sun beat strong, but a fresh breeze had marina that offset it. Better bring sunscreen and a hat at that time. In one of the houses (at least saw one) sell souvenirs and some things to eat and drink. According to what I understand, some of that money is for kittens on the island, though I am not very sure they are cute craft memories of a very particular place and not as commercial.

  • Somewhat away from access to the ferry dock and ishinomaki station. If the taxi or the time is right is a good will (ask where I should get off or taxi ride to the ferry). And may change location near ferry terminal for construction and. Where you want to keep in mind is that region had extensive damage at 3.11. And after waiting for taxis or cars that also. And on the island are several places you can eat and drink, and now pretty much established as a tourist destination. , And nearby Ferry Pier public toilet. And turns slowly, even an hour can easily, but if you would like 2 hours so far. If you like of course cats very much as should be put. Between people who are not directly related to tourism and recently embarked on a tourism and locals and is. Tashiro Island religion and search and everything comes out.

  • This was the third kurushima (^ ω ^) if enough weather at 11 in the first half so I don't feel cold. Is a very good increase in place can eat more than two years ago, but tourism is strengthened in was a little disappointing. Sale of souvenirs to force shops sell travel for forget your toothbrush and put more necessities you want honest feedback. Increase the number of cats, and gained great said. He worked for cat eye drops had brought so many cats out mucus and vulnerary. Prepare before getting on the ferry who want to bring on the island do not sell cat food so good. Side there is loose with the manure smell pretty Eva not so lightly on the hose the water shall be like felt.
