My family are mad cat-lovers, so this was high on my list of things to see. I liked the many cat statues and images, and took lots of photos to share with the family. I also bought good luck charms with cat images on them.
I did find the grounds around the shrine slightly untidy, and this detracted from its appearance. It's a smaller shrine and, although popular with young Japanese women (maybe because of the romantic connection?), it's a fairly niche attraction for those from outside Japan.
I was staying in the area and doing something different appealed to me, so I'm pleased I went, although it was a fairly average experience.
