This is Aoshima, a remote island off southern Japan, home to a sleepy fishing village, a handful of elderly residents...
...and 120 cats.
Welcome, to Cat Island.
The island has become something of a tourist destination for mainland cat lovers - not surprising from the home of Hello Kitty.
The cats have taken over Aoshima since originally being brought in to deal with a mouse problem, and only around 10 are thought to have been neutered, while a population of 900 in 1945 has almost completed dwindled due to the pull of cities.
Visitor Makiko Yamasaki, 27, said: "There is a ton of cats here, then there was this sort of cat witch who came out to feed the cats which was quite fun. So I'd want to come again."
