Before the holiday, I saw an advertisement for Neko Break Yokohama. It described the event as a photography exhibit showcasing cats who have become famous Twitter and Instagram. I added this to my “must see list” post holiday. I thought pictures of kawaii Neko would warm me up on a chilly winter afternoon.
I took the train to Mark Is, a large mall in the Minato Mirai area of Yokohama. The exhibit was on the 5F of the mall. I made my way up the numerous escalators, I think like 9 or 10. (The train station is on B4.) The entry fee for the exhibit was ¥500. Let’s just say I was in cute cat picture heaven! There were so many!
The exhibit was contained by temporary walls and setup in a “L” shape.
I love the 3D exhibit at the end of the row. This person’s cats apparently busted through the screen. They have pictures and a model demo.
These guys had me giggling. Check out the Trump hair cat.
Or the snot bubble cat. Still giggling.
Or the cat with a Tokyo Skytree hat.
There were a lot of cats with hats. Kawaii! The cat to the left of the Tokyo Skytree Cat is a sushi cat!
I think my favorite was the stray cat exhibit. I noticed immediately the cats were all outdoors. Google Translate confirmed my suspicion they were feral cats. It made me smile thinking how this person took time to take pictures of cats that weren’t their own.
More cats with hats and A few Christmas pictures.
I also like the cat decorated as Kagami Mochi.
Kagami Mochi is a Japanese New Year decoration. It consist of two mochi cakes stacked on top of one another with a daidai (bitter orange) and leaf balanced on top. The mochi is used for soup.
There was plenty of merchandise available. I had my fingers crossed for Neko Atsume charms. Unfortunately, no luck.
I had a good giggle during my Neko Break. It made for a silly and fun outing. As advertised, the feline photo exhibited warmed my heart!
