    I agree!
    I love this, one of the many Japan youtubers I follow has been here. I think the place is called Tashirojima? Sadly all the mostly elderly residents are dying and at this rate the island will have no-one to care for them. In any case a purfect place to go after travel bans have been lifted lol. It makes me want to do a fundraiser and set up there and just...live in paradise for the rest of my life lol

    I love the way they never quite jump in the lake!

    I found a video of Clapham Junction station that got me worked up (in a good sense) and calmed down, at the same time (I used to stand on those platforms for real, in a previous life).

    I adore horse films, both alone & in herds.

    Sea films. Lightish or oldish aeroplane films. Mountain films. Misty meadow films.

    I would love to go there too! Apparently there's also a train station whose station master is a cat.

    Tama was made the station master, and the publicity saved the station from having to shut down. Unfortunately she died, and has had several successors.

    There are actually TWO cat islands in Japan:

    Aoshima, Ehime - Wikipedia

    OP's video is likely of Aoshima.

    Tashirojima - Wikipedia

    Tashirojima is the more famous of the two cat islands. It is here that the cat shrine is found, and the island that has made its way into Japanese pop culture, with a movie and TV series set on the island.

    Cats are considered good luck in Japanese and Chinese culture, the opposite of the fear of cats as harbingers of evil found in Europe and in England-based colonial cultures like the USA. Cat idols are a common sight in Japanese and Chinese retail stores, displayed by merchants, often at the cash register, in order to attract sales and thus profits. In Chinese communities in the US the idol is sometimes called Million Dollar Cat. I have one of my own, purchased in San Francisco's Chinatown in the mid 90s. Daiso sells the Japanese version, but I don't like the way that one looks.

    Ōkunoshima - Wikipedia

    There is also a Rabbit Island, Okunoshima. Okunoshima's history is much darker-the Japanese military manufactured poison gas there in the 1920s and 1930s. After the surrender, the gas facilities were burned. American occupiers then destroyed the remaining stocks of gas. The post-reconstruction government planted rabbits on the island, in the hopes of eventually turning it into a large park. Those plans were never fully realized. The rabbits are the only full time inhabitants today, although a small museum is sometimes open that commemorates the island's days as a poison gas plant.

    I would love to just be buried in cats, I wouldn’t even care if I couldn’t breathe under them all, KITTY SNUGGLES TO THE MAX!!! So much purring! If I suffocated under them at least I’d die happy.
