This is supposed to be the origin of the beckoning cat. As a cat lover, I had expected to see a lot of cats roaming at this shrine. I was very disappointed that I could only find one big fat white cat here, who is not really human friendly. On the other hand, the shrine itself is quite nice. Quite a few beckoning cats are placed around and inside the shrine. It's very peaceful, and it's just a short walk from the Sensoji. For tourists who stay in the Asakusa area, this shrine is not a bad choice for you to come to visit.
