Many White Emotionless Cats

Many welcoming cats in Gotoku-Ji

All of them had empty eyes

Shot at Gotoku-Ji, a Buddhist temple in Gotoku-Ji, Tokyo.

In a corner of the precinct, many figurines of cat were placed in concentrated masses. All of them were a white cat and raised its right hand. They were welcoming cats and believed that they brought good luck.

Although they were a lucky amulet, the atmosphere was creepy somehow. They were sending a wide-eyed look at me. I felt the madness. Perhaps, the bad vibes could be afraid of these empty eyes.
