Trip to Ainoshima: the cat is land♪

Outside the district

From the Hakata JR station, it takes about one hour to get to the island. You have to take the Kagoshima line and stop at the Fukukodaimae stop. From there you have to take the 100 yen bus to the terminus where you can finally take the boat to get to the island.

On the day I went the wind was very strong and the boat moved a lot. Some people were sick, so be prepared to the possibility to have to say goodbye to your lunch ! ...

As soon as you leave the boat, you can see this cat waiting for newcomers. His name is Miyu-chan. He is very friendly and loved by all. He will love you even more if you bring him food, of course ! ヽ(‘ ∇‘ )ノ ワーイ
船下りてすぐに猫ちゃんに出会いました。みゆちゃんが私たちを待ってくれました!すごくなついてくれる子でした!もちろん、餌あれば、もっともっと好かれますね!ヽ(‘ ∇‘ )ノ ワーイ
The island is filled with small traditional houses that remind you that you are in Japan even though the landscape is very different from the rest of the Kyushu area !
If you take a walk around you will soon find a lot of cats everywhere. They are usually very friendly, except for the small ones who are still not used to humans.
This group of cats looked to me like it was the boss gang of the island.
The landscape is really pretty ! Even though the weather was not too sunny, I was still able to take beautiful shots of the sea and beach !v( ̄ー ̄)v
天気があいまいだったのに海辺のきれいな写真も撮れました!v( ̄ー ̄)v
As I had quite a long time to spend on the island I decided to visit the rest of the place, and leave the cats for a bit.
This advertised for a beautiful monument, so I decided to take a stroll in this direction....

I did not regret it. You have to climb a bit but once you are at the top of the small hill you have this incredible view on the sea, and really it is wonderful.
Most of the cats will agree to take a selfie with you ! Some won't be too happy about it though !! T-T
All in all, a very refreshing and calm trip, and I recommend it to anyone who needs a mood changing day !!
