Maneki-neko Museum in Onomichi (招き猫美術館in(イン)尾道)

3.0

Art Museum

An art museum built on the so called Cat Alley in Onomichi City, Hiroshima Prefecture, is a popular spot for cat-loving tourists. There are approximately 3,000 maneki-neko (beckoning cats) collected by artist Shunji Sonoyama on display in the museum which has been renovated from an old house built in the Taisho period. The collection is centered on imported items and period objects, and things rarely seen. There is also a Fukuishi-neko (literally, “lucky stone cat”) corner with stones painted by Shunji Sonoyama. The notable cat, Koume-chan, from the Japanese plum sweets is here too.

Review of Manekineko Museums in Onomichi

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2020/01/28 猫はいません。
小さな部屋に、ところ狭しと招き猫がならんでいます。
大きい猫から小さい猫まで、なんだかご利益がありそうな不思議な空間です。
興味のない人は1.2分で見終わってしまうと思います。
お土産の招き猫ポストカードなど、買えます。
Reviewed:2019/07/18 多数の招き猫が展示された美術館
それほど広くない建物に招き猫が所狭しと展示されています。また、ポストカードなどの土産物もありますので、立ち寄ってみてはいかがでしょか。
Reviewed:2019/04/22 猫がいるわけではありません
まず、名前から期待する方がいそうなので予めお知らせしておくと、生きている猫が沢山いるわけではありません(お店によって若干いたりするみたいだけど)。そうですねぇ、強いて言うと台湾の九分のような感じ。細い坂をくねくねと歩いて、カフェとか雑貨屋さんを巡りながら周ると言った方がイメージつきやすいかも。女子には好きそうなスポットですが、男子だけで行っても素通りするだけになってしまうかも知れませんね。行ったの...

          There is more than meets the eye awaiting any Hiroshima-bound traveler. Kicking off in Hiroshima city, the Peace Memorial Park, Hiroshima Castle, and Shukkeien Garden offer a couple of days of exploring; however, the real beauty lies along the southern coast of the prefecture. There, a series of islands spreads across the Seto Inland Sea: from the mysterious sea-submerged Great Torii Gate at Miyajima Island to the first half of the islands that connect Honshu to Shikoku via six spectacular suspension bridges.
