Tashiro-jima (田代島?) is a small island in Ishinomaki CityMiyagi Prefecture, Japan. It lies in the Pacific Ocean off the Oshika Peninsula, to the west of Aji-shima. It is an inhabited island, although the population is quite small (around 100 people, down from around 1000 people in the 1950s[1]). It has become known as “Cat Island” due to the large stray cat population that thrives as a result of the local belief that feeding cats will bring wealth and good fortune. The cat population is now larger than the human population on the island.
