For some reason, the Japanese are really fond of cats. For example, recently I found out that a station master in Japan is a cat named Tama!
Are there any other tourist attractions in Japan related to cats (Preferably near Tokyo)?

Being in Japan, anything cute you ask for will most likely exist in much more animation formats than real life versions. So be prepared for a definite shortage of real cats here.
While there are 2 cat-themed amusement parks, one a bit far away from Tokyo and one a bit closer (this stuff is not only reserved for mice), there are also several occasions where cats play a part in Japanese culture and are very well worth visiting, even if you do not like cats!
