There Is A Cat Temple In Japan And Its Monks Are The Cutest

Cat lovers everywhere, rejoice! Japan is full of surprises and some of them are especially awesome if you’re a fan of fluffy felines. Catto admirers that visit Japan should do their best to head on over to Nyan Nyan Ji (literally meaning Meow Meow Temple when translated into English), which is in Kyoto.
Now, we know what you’re thinking: a place named Meow Meow Temple should be full of cats, right? Well, you’re 100 percent correct! The place has a cat monk and has catto assistants. How purrfect is that? Scroll down for Bored Panda’s interview with the owner of Koyuki the head cat monk of Meow Meow Temple!
Those people visiting the Nyan Nyan Temple in Kyoto are in for a treat because they’ll be greeted by the current cat monk named Koyuki. Inside the temple, you can order food and drinks that are, appropriately, cat-themed.
Koyuki’s owner talked to Bored Panda about Meow Meow Temple: “This temple was opened by painter Toru Kaya with the theme of this favorite cat.”
According to Koyuki’s owner, the person who opened Meow Meow Temple is a well-known painter of “shrines and temples.”
The place is also full of statues and drawings that feature cats as well. If you’re in the mind for souvenirs, you can buy some of them inside the temple shop that’s called “Littlefootmark Ren.”
In an interview, Bored Panda was told that there are 7 cats working in the temple: Koyuki (who is female), Waka (male), Chin (male), Aruji (male), Ren (female), Konatsu (female), and Chicchi (female).
“Visitors who come to worship play with cats and enjoy cafes and cat art,” said Koyuki’s owner, who sent Bored Panda some exclusive photos from the Meow Meow Temple.
