There’s this stereotype about cats having a stick-in-the-mud attitude. Well, our feline companions are not exactly the most adventurous creatures. But they sure know how to have some fun from time to time. And if you think kitties are not fond of traveling, think again. You probably haven’t met these two adorable adventurous cats, Daikichi and Fuku-Chan from Japan. Felines are creatures of routine and would prefer to stay within their territories (your home) than anywhere else. Needless to say, they hate to travel, it’s in their nature. But these cute kitties will prove that not all felines are the same. In fact, they love to travel all around Japan with their owner Daisuke Nagasawa.
Nagasawa documents his adventure around Japan together with his two travel buddies on Instagram. No matter how finicky they are, cats are also affectionate pets that would prefer to stay at their human’s side. This is why Nagasawa decided to take his two kitties with him on his trips. For 8 years, the two adventurous cats have visited famous Japanese landmarks such as Mt. Fuji, and various historical temples. They have been to all 47 prefectures, from the streets of bustling cities to the tranquil roads of rural provinces. Of course, they never missed the chance to see blooming cherry blossom trees this spring. And from the looks on their faces, we can say that they’re enjoying every minute of their trip.

Daikichi and Fuku-Chan are actually rescue cats. Nagasawa found Daikichi on the brink of death due to extreme cold while it was contained in a wildlife park. He decided to adopt the poor cat and gave it a cozy home. Then he later found Fuku-Chan in a cardboard box that was left on the side of the road. Both Daikichi and Fuku-Chan did not only found a loving owner. Moreover, they also found a perfect travel companion in Nagasawa.
