Visit on Ainoshina gives a unique experience of exceptional world. Of course major "point of interest" is huge amount of cats but the Island has much more to offer. Mainly it's special history of Korean cooperation, production of pearls and much more.

Response from otomo-travel, Manager at Private Tour - An Island Heaven of Cats. More Cats than Humans in Ainoshima
Responded 4 Aug 2019
Hi GMP28no, Thank you so much for the comment! Yes, as you said, Ainoshima is not so much popular for international tourists. We are quite happy that you enjoyed the tour and the location. I hope we were able to add something extra memory for your travel in Japan. Again, thank you so much for choosing otomo!
