Neko no Hosomichi goes on for about 200m from the eastern side of Ushitora Shrine to the three-floor pagoda of Tennei-ji Temple. The area was given its name due to the many Fukuishi Cats (stones with cats painted on them) left there. The cats were painted by Shunji Sonoyama, an artist who lives in Onomichi. In the area, there is also the Maneki-neko Museum where you can enjoy the scene of “cats and Onomichi”.
