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

Reviewed:2018/06/02 招き猫コレクション
尾道が初めての友人と立ち寄りました。美術館といっても、個人のお宅くらいの規模です。集められた招き猫コレクションが所狭しと並んでいます。猫の街尾道らしさ満載、猫好きには堪らないと思います。
Reviewed:2017/12/02 個人宅の中にまねき猫が多数・・・・
猫の細道の道中に有る招き猫美術館、元々は個人宅なので入口も表札に美術館の案内が有るだけ。個人でこれだけのまねき猫の収集をしたのは凄いなーとは思いますが美術館?って感じです。

まあ面白い場所が有るという事で訪問するのどうでしょうか?

          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.
