Now, this is the life…or at least it seems like it. Daisuke Nagasawa is a cat lover and a traveler. So he combined his two interests and he travels all over Japan with his two faithful companions, Daikichi and Fuku-Chan.

The trio has traveled all over Japan for the last 8 years and visited over 1,000 destinations. How’d he get started on the epic adventure? Well, Fuku-Chan was misbehaving in pet care to the point where the place wouldn’t take the cat in anymore, so Nagasawa decided he would just take both of his cats on a trip around Japan.

The cats like to travel in a stroller or in Nagasawa’s backpack.

Take a look at this group on some of their excellent adventures!

1. Fuku-Chan

⛄❄Daikichi was born and brought up in the wild and frozen northeastern part of Hokkaido Island, so he never minds cold weather and snow.🇯🇵 He is now walking around Hiruzen Highland in the northernmost part of Okayama Prefecture. ❄It is located at a height of 500-600 meters. ⛰️The name of Hiruzen "蒜山" in the Japanese language is formed from two kanji characters "蒜" meaning "garlic," and "山" meaning "mountain." 🇯🇵🗾 😻😍😻😍😻♥ 🇯🇵 🐾 🎌⛄❄だいきちは、冬の原野、北海道の北東部で生まれ育ったので、ほとんど寒い天候や雪を気にしないようです。⛄だいきちが散歩しているこの場所は、雪が積もる岡山県最北端の「蒜山(ひるぜん)高原」です😻🐾 🇯🇵 🐾 #catsofworld #catsofinstagram #rescuecat #rescuecatsofinstagram #fluffy #adventurecat #fosteringsaveslives #dailykitten #dailycat #travelingcats #travelingcat #adventurecats #catlovers #cat #cats #cats_of_instagram #bestcatsclub #bestcataward #trendscat #pawsies_club #instacat_meows #catstagramcat #catasticworld #cat_delight #highlands #snow #蒜山 #蒜山高原 #旅猫 #旅にゃんこ
