Visiting every single one of Japan’s 47 prefectures is something that most of us hope to achieve in a lifetime, but these two adventurous cats have already been there, done that.
Daikichi and Fuku-chan inspire Insta-jealousy with their artistic shots taken in gorgeous locations. They travel luxuriously, taking it easy in back packs and carriers, while their human owners do all the leg work.
But they weren’t always so lucky. Their owners, Daisuke and Tomomi Nagasawa, rescued both the cats from dire circumstances.
When Daikichi (the brown and white cat) was found in 2005, he was in a bad way. A scrawny stray, barely surviving, he had collapsed on a snowy road in a Hokkaido national park.
The striking ginger kitty, Fuku-chan (real name Daifuku), was discovered five years later in a cardboard box near a Tokyo park. She needed eye surgery, and the couple pledged to take her in and care for her.
