Now that we're experiencing an unprecedented cat boom, there's a small museum you should visit, even if you don't just have a cat fetish. Its name is "Yokohama Cat Museum." A detached house located on a quiet hill surrounded by Yokohama Yamate Western-style buildings such as the Erisman House and Berwick Hall. The first floor is open to the public as an art museum only on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays.

This is a cat work by Tsuguharu Fujita, who is also known as a cat lover! Your mother was quite an art collector.


In addition, many cat-themed works by artists connected to the museum, such as accessories and bags, are on display and available for purchase.


It's cute, isn't it? A small silver chopstick rest that expresses the beauty of the cat's unique form.


In addition to this, postcards and clear files were also on sale. Would you like it as a souvenir?

There's also a shelf like this in the back. Although they are not cats, there are vintage Western dolls lined up. They crossed the ocean and came all the way to Japan.


While enjoying a walk in early summer, be sure to visit this cozy art museum. Many cute and funny cats will welcome you.
