  • Because it is a shrine that is often introduced on TV, believe in "rumors"?? Went. It was about a 10-minute walk from JR Karatsu Station, and there were many people on the sightseeing bus tour at the ferry dock. I enjoyed a mini cruise of about 10 minutes and landed in Takashima. There is an enthusiastic welcome of the person in the souvenir shop and the cat. To win the lottery, buy a gold cloth bag to put the lot in... And that. You can go to the shrine without buying it separately, so first of all, there is a mark of the cat foot in the way to visit, so I hesitated ...

  • From JR Karatsu Station, take the Boat to Hoto Pier (15-20 minutes on foot) and take the regular boat "New Takashima" (210 yen one way) to the island. The ferry timetable is posted at the tourist office at JR Karatsu Station. We arrived at the island in about 10 minutes while looking at Karatsu Castle. We got off the ferry and followed the street signof "The shrine here" and arrived at Hoto Shrine in about 5 minutes on foot. So when I take a walk around the area, there are a few cats that don't wear collars. It's like a little cat island.
