In Kyoto, we think of Homo sapiens through cat as having taken cat through Homo sapiens. We always felt such thought that cat was connected to Homo sapiens deeply from the ancient times at this capital. We can spend "Kyoto of cat" for one year five months and think heartily. When what had been produced in Japan was good…….
