- quote - Iwazaki Eiji -
“Waneko” Studies: A Journey into Japan’s Cat Lore
Cat lover and doctor of veterinary science Iwazaki Eiji is also an investigator of cats and their related folklore. He is the author of Waneko no ashiato (Tracking Japan’s Cats), an introduction to Tokyo’s many cat-related shrines and temples. Here he talks about the deep connections between the people and cats of Japan, as reflected in cat lore all over the country.

Turning to his own country, Iwazaki goes on: “The ancestors of Japan’s common housecat, or ieneko, were once thought to have come via the silk road some time during the Nara period [710-794] or early Heian period [794–1185]. They were brought on ships to protect Buddhist scrolls from rats. In 2011, though, the Yayoi period [300 BCE–300 CE] Karakami ruins on Iki island, Nagasaki Prefecture offered up bones that were identified as belonging to a domestic cat, Japan’s oldest. It appears cats were kept as pets there 2,000 years ago. I believe the features that have developed since then, like the turtle shell patterns or bobtails, could indicate some genetic differences from western cats, and I’d like to study that and see if the waneko can be established as a distinct breed.”
