A cat is a friendly mate of his life, and the writer, Jiro Daibutsu, said, "There are more than 500 cats who have lived in my house." At the Daibutsu Jiro Memorial Hall, a cat-filled photo exhibition will be held on February 22nd, "Cat's Day", in connection with the cat lover Joji Daibutsu.

This is the fourth photo exhibition this year, and last year nearly 500 entries were gathered and exhibited. The photos are accompanied by 18-character comments by the photographer, and can range from something full of "cat love" to something laughable. Popular voting is held by the popular visitors each time, and the selected works will be presented with wonderful prizes. At the photo exhibition venue, there will be photographs introducing Jiro Daibukuro's beloved cat family, and among the permanent exhibitions on the second floor, we will introduce episodes of Jiro Daibukuro's beloved cat and related materials.
