“Under the sun, every day is a good day. Another good day, Fukumaru”

About 12 years ago Miyoko Ihara from Japan has started to take photographs of her grandmother, Misa. One day, her grandmother found an odd-eyed kitten in the shed. She named the cat “Fukumaru” in hope that “God of fuku (good fortune) comes and everything will be smoothed over like maru (circle)”.

Misa is now 88 years old, it has been about eight years since she and Fukumaru met and both have barely ever been apart. Their beautiful friendship is documented on Miyoko Ihara´s website, photos full of preciousness and beauty of the daily life.

  1. Love the story of these two, and the pictures. Every now and then you meet a soulmate, and he/she doesn’t necessarily need to be of the opposite sex, or even the same species.
