Love: The Cat Stationmaster

So, this video wasn’t something we had originally thought we were going to do. Our plan for Aizu Wakamatsu was two videos: our Special Soba video and the Samurai Training video. We were about to go on with the rest of our day and relax, but then we heard there was a station that had a cat as the station master and we knew we had to stop everything and make a video of it. Forget eating or packing anything WE MUST SEE CONDUCTOR WHISKERS.

The station is Ashinomakionsen Station, and it’s in Fukushima, and there’s a cat that’s the stationmaster. The cat’s name is Love, and we were able to sit down, give him some snuggles, and ask him some questions about what it’s like being a stationmaster and a cat at the same time. I can’t believe that I got to hold him as well. I was told that Love usually pushes away from people (I said punch, but I think they meant to say push, like when cats stiff arm you), and I snuggled and scritched him for so long. It was great I loved it and it’s special in my heart forever and ever.

There’s really nothing else to share here. Love walks around with a hat and has someone following close by. I don’t think Love makes any executive decisions or plans the schedule for the week or balances the books or anything like that. But Love is a freaking cat stationmaster and it’s awesome so we shot a short video about it. That’s all!

  1. How cute is this? I haven’t been on this site for a while, and I have obviously been missing out. I think cats should be in charge of more things, it looks like Love is doing a great job. I love these little short slice of life videos you guys do, thanks a lot!

  2. Those ears!!!!! All curly with the little tufts… The HAT!!! I’m in love with Love-chan! I’m a crazy cat lady anyway so anything you upload with kitties (Meems Rules!) is a winner in my book. ^_^ Thank you guise for sharing this vid — there are so many cool trains & stations in Japan: my goal is to one day visit them all (currently saving for the bank-busting Seven Stars train cruise in Kyushu) especially since so many of them are fairly affordable & have activities in their areas for tourists like me.

  3. It’s amazing they not only let you pet the cat but even walk it! I though you will only look at him through the window or something like that :P

  6. Oh man I love cats! That is how i found you guys too begin with. With your cat cafe video. I loved this video.
    I had heard about this cat station master on tv somewhere. From what I can remember the show was saying it was born from desperation to make money for the town. That’s what they said anyways.

    Ps. A couple of your videos recently are just abruptly stopping at the end. I’m not sure if this is intentional or not and wanted to mention in case it is software related. If it isnt and a new style then cool!
