Japan is a country full of cute things. One of the tourist attractions near Wakayama (和歌山) is to visit the train stationmaster (貓駅長) calico cats at the “Kishi station”. Their names are “Tama” and “NiTama”.
Traveling in Japan
As I am a big fan of traveling in Japan, I am going to start introducing some interesting things and places to my blog readers.
Station-Master Cats 🐱 貓駅長
“Tama” was the first stationmaster cat who has served her duty from 2007 to 2015. It was such a big hit for the station. Thousands of tourists went to visit her every year. Numerous cute products and multiple photo books were published. After “Tama” passed away, her stationmaster responsibility was passed onto “NiTama” (which means Tama the 2nd Stationmaster).
Kashigawa Train Line 貴志川線
On this train line, there are a few themed trains including the Tama cat theme, toys theme, plum theme and strawberries theme.
Plan your visit
Please check out the this website to see “NiTama” service days and time before you visit. You don’t want to visit her during her day offs (usually Wed and Thur). 😂
How to get there?
Take JR train from Shin-Osaka to Wakayama Station – 1 hour
Or from Osaka Station to Wakayama Station – 1 hour 15-30 mins
