[Main Part]

Neko-no-hosomichi (Cat Trail) is one of the most favorite spots in Onomichi, along with Tenneiji Temple kaiun-to. There are 108 “Fukuishi-neko” (Lucky stone cat), round stones with painting of cats, along Neko-no-hosomichi (Cat Trail). When I visited Onomichi for the first time two years ago, I visited Neko-no-hosomichi (Cat Trail). This time, I revisited it and spent considerable time on it. I took many photos there, so I will post some of them in my blog.

The blow photo was Manekineko Art Museum in Onomichi. It was not allowed to take photos inside the museum, so I just took photos outside.Onomichi Neko-no-hosomichi (Cat Trail) Manekineko Art Museum1
