Tama perhaps is the first cat station master in the whole world – she is so cute that she has drawn attention from across the globe! Tama is the master of Kishi Station, a private railroad station, which is shaped like a cat’s face. The cafe at the station serves delicious juice and desserts made from locally grown fruit. Visitors can also purchase goods featuring Tama at the shop next to the cafe then ride one of the popular trains modeled after Tama, including Omocha (toy) and Ichigo (strawberry), that depart from JR Wakayama Station.
