001 Hiding in the Cool Groove
Tomonoura is a scenic port town with scenery reminiscent of the Edo period.

Historical remains such as Machiya (tradesmen’s houses), temples, and shrines blend in with everyday life, and time flows by in a relaxed way.

Here in Tomonoura, there are many cats.

Many of them are homeless cats, but they are loved by the people in Tomonoura; they are living without disturbing the people and fitting in with the beautiful scenery of this town.

In early summer even if the temperature rises, the stone pavement path, which symbolizes Tomonoura, is still cold, so it is a great summer resort for cats.

When the temperature rises, they move to a cooler environment. You can find beautiful scenery there as well. Cats are geniuses in finding comfortable places for them.

There is a photographer who has fun encountering cats and continues to take their pictures in Tomonoura, -his name is Teruaki Morihara.

He is now familiar with cats and is trusted by them. He will introduce to you their everyday life with his beloved feelings towards them in his pictures.
