Sabineko Gallery: Kichijoji
Kichijoji / Art gallery
Open noon-7pm. Closed Tuesdays.

This small gallery-shop features a nice selection of original cat-themed crafts and artwork on a rotating basis. "Nekorinas" - colorful ceramic ocarinas in the shape of cats - were some of the more unusual items we saw during a recent visit, along with original woodblock stamps depicting cat-related scenes from old Japan. There were also one-of-a-kind cat dolls, miniature cat paintings, and beautifully printed greeting cards.

Check the gallery website for information about what's currently in the shop, or drop in as part of a Kichijoji animal-cafe tour.
