Book Description
The embodiment of zen-independent, serene, enlightened cats inhabit temples, shrines, gardens, and parts throughout japan. Photographer yoshiyuki yaginuma has captured these free spirits in many poses from meditating in a garden and baring fangs in a hunting stance to frolicking with the family. Perching on status and curling in repose. In Japan cats have always occupied a special place: the eternal symbol of good luck is a white cat with its paw raised and ancient screens from centuries past are often graced with a cat. And in the rarified world of Buddhist and Shinto temples cats have also been welcome for practical reasons; since the monks eat rice and so mice, there`s rice for the monks with cats regulating the population.
