Neko-Sushi Postcards

By Neko Sushi 

Neko-Sushi is an experimental scientific research project into the mysterious phenomenon of cat on sushi. At first it might seem like a ridiculous thing to research, but once you’ve seen the preliminary results you’ll agree, it is essential that this research be undertaken. “Neko-Sushi is an extremely unusual life-form consisting of a cat on top of a portion of sushi rice,” says the website. The first stage of research has resulted into two sets of printed postcards, Neko Sushi Postcard Set A and B (¥1,050 eachPrices are approximate only and subject to change.

). Each set features 10 cards (14x14cm) featuring very rare images of real cats on top of real rice. How is it possible that there are cats on top of rice, and why are there cats on top of rice? The answer is Photoshop. But that still doesn’t explain it very well. As the founders say, the “existence (of Neko-Sushi) is still shrouded in mystery and actual sightings remain rare.” Just look at images and you’ll begin to understand the kawaii-cult of Neko Sushi. Or don’t look if you’d rather not be haunted by happy confusion for the rest of the day.
