Back in January, Japan Probe posted about Wakayama Electric Railwayâ€™s decision to appoint a cat named Tama as a stationmaster. According to a news report, Tama has become a major tourist attraction, drawing many visitors who ride the Kishigawa Lineâ€™s special strawberry motif train.
Tama is now the centerpiece of Kishi Station, sitting upon his thrown and wearing a cute little cap while people take his picture. The stationâ€™s shopowner, who cares for Tama and two feline deputy stationmasters, carries him out to the platform to wave goodbye to each train as it leaves. Awwwâ€¦how cute.
