Why choose

Deep impact! Statue of SHIP’S CAT

Cats have been on board with humans since ancient times. They have been protecting cargo, food, and ships from rats, preventing epidemics, and at times serving as friends to heal the crew's hearts. "SHIP'S CAT" was born with the motif of a "guardian god of journey" that has traveled around the world with humans. It was created by a contemporary artist Kenji Yanobe in 2017. SHIP'S CAT sticks its face out of the window at the entrance to welcome you.
