There are several reasons why Japan has such a strong affinity for cats:

Lucky Felines: In Japanese culture, cats are seen as symbols of good luck and fortune. This belief can be traced back centuries, and is reflected in popular figurines like the Maneki-neko, or beckoning cat.

Practical Companions: Japan's society places a high value on work ethic, and many people lead busy lives. Cats are ideal pets for such lifestyles, as they are relatively independent and require less attention than dogs.

Cultural Integration: Cats aredepicted throughout Japanese art, literature, and folklore. The kawaii, or “cute” aesthetic, is a major part of Japanese popular culture, and cats are often seen as the embodiment of cuteness.

Cleanliness and Efficiency: Japanese society emphasizes cleanliness and efficiency, and cats are naturally fastidious creatures who keep themselves clean. This aligns well with Japanese values.
