Sakura Cat by Risachantag Sakura Cat by Risachantag
This year, the sakura (cherry trees) bloomed late in Japan, so unfortunately, I missed most of the bloom. On the last day of our trip, we headed down to Ueno park, to see if there were any trees blooming ahead of the prediction... and we were in luck!

This tree, near one of the entrances, was in full bloom. Since this is Japan we're talking about, naturally there was a large number of people taking photos of it, but curiously, a small number were gathered around the trunk of the tree. Closer inspection revealed a large, and surprisingly, undeterred cat lounging on a low branch.

More photos and sketches from the trip can be found on my facebook page: [link]

Yes, it had a kind of frill collar on. Japan has some weird pet fashions! Still, I was glad to see it has an owner.

i lived in Japan for a year and there was a huge number of feral cats living in the park a short way from my appartment. Some of them were quite friendly others ran away from people but I was facinated by the number of feral cats I encountered where I lived.

Nice capture. The cat looks totally unbothered. :D this guy looks like he belongs to someone. :D
