Ryubo Department Store’s come up with an unusual exhibition to start the new year; the downtown Naha department store is featuring a Cat Exhibition with more than 50 breeds of cats from all over the world.

There will a petting corner where visitors will be able to pet and carry the furry animals, and a cafe space where guests will be able to relax and enjoy a hot or cold beverage along with the furry ones.
