Scores of cat enthusiasts painted their faces and dressed up in elaborate and colourful feline costumes to celebrate Japan’s annual ghost cat festival, “Bakeneko”. Cat lovers danced and played music as they paraded through the Tokyo neighbourhood, Kagurazaka, on Sunday for the festival that traditionally precedes Halloween on October 31. The neighbourhood is the main location in the satirical novel, “I Am A Cat”, by popular author Natsume Soseki.
