Osaka Street Cats

The street cats of Japan are far more elusive than their distant Tel Aviv cousins. So far, I’ve spotted them in Tokyo, Kyoto, and Osaka; the snowfall in Nozawa Onsen probably kept the feline population off the roads.

The street cats of Japan lurk in the shadows, creeping past you along the curb or slinking above you on the edge of a roof. You have to look up… look down… look out.

ねこ! ねこ!



About Jordan

Jordan Matthew Yerman started writing during his third year of high school, where his teacher discouraged his use of the eff-word as "crude, unnecessary and uncouth". While attending UC San Diego for his degree in Political Science, Jordan picked up acting; he would later attend the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art, living in the UK for four years before relocating to New York City. To get by, he has worked as a proofreader, model, technical consultant, HR trainer, sign-placer, sales director, crate stacker, bartender, photographer, real estate broker, and as an exhibit at the Bronx Museum. As an actor, Jordan has performed in the USA, England, Scotland, Germany, Belgium, and Netherlands, from stage to indie screen to voiceover, including London's West End. Jordan has been around the world 2 3/4 times. He currently lives in Vancouver and works in New Media; capital N, capital M. You can reach him via jordan at international jet trash dot com.
