Adorable Sand Cats Become Japanese Beach’s Landmark After Taking Over
When Japanese artist Shigeto Hashimoto was invited to the beach by his wife, he likely wasn’t expecting to be greeted by an army of felines that would become a favorite of beachgoers, but that appears to be just what happened. Just a few days ago, Hashimoto shared photos from Kamakura’s Yuigahama beach that have become the talk of the town.
“At 5:30 this morning, my wife suddenly woke me up and said “we’re going to the beach”, so we headed to Yuigahama. For the time being I thought I’d sit and read, so I pulled out a beach chair and SHONAN TIME magazine to read. Then she shouted “look at this!”, and when I turned around a ton of cats had been born. It seems like she’s making them into Yuigahama’s new landmark!”
While Hashimoto was getting ready to lounge at the beach, his wife had transformed the surrounding beach area into a cat lover’s heaven. To do this she used the “infinite cat making machine” Neko Cup, a popular cat-shaped mold that can instantly turn dirt, sand, and even food into a feline work of art.
