Basic information on Yushima
Population of about 250

Cat density is quite close to the harbor
Yushima, a small island in the Ariake Sea in the Amakusa region of Kumamoto Prefecture, is famous as a regional cat island. Since the people of the island jointly take care of cats, there are cat houses and cat feeding areas. It is said that there are more than 200 cats, but I feel that the number is surprisingly small. Being a domestic cat, I was not very cautious, and I had the impression that many cats were accustomed to tourists.
