Now that’s amazing.. Japan never fails to do that for us.. Read it fully

Japan never fails to amaze us. Yet another set of amazing facts about Japan listed here:

Aoshima, a Japanese ‘Cat Island’

Aoshima Island is one of about a dozen “cat islands” around Japan, small places where there are significantly more feline residents than people.

Cats outnumber humans six to one on the island. Recently becoming popular online, tiny Aoshima has seen a steep rise in tourist visits, overwhelming the handful of permanent residents.

Okunoshima, Rabbit Island

Japan’s Rabbit Island is home to hundreds of wild but friendly bunnies who approach tourists for food.

It’s not known how the island came to be overrun by rabbits, but from 1930 to 1945 it was used as a testing ground for poison and it is thought during that time the test subjects included rabbits.

Zao – Fox Village

This magical oasis of foxiness is called Zao Fox Village, and it’s located in Japan’s Miyagi prefecture. For 100 yen (or about 85 US cents), visitors are provided with food, but because the foxes are not domesticated, they are cautioned against hand-feeding them or bringing small children.

Nara, Deer City

The City of Nara, Japan has a population of more than 300,000 people and more than 1,000 deer. They’re everywhere (they’ve been known to take over entire streets), generally harmless and revered by the locals. Yoko Ishii documents the deer’s quiet wanderings in dreamy, almost surreal photos of wildlife in the last place you’d expect to see it.
