Among all the modes of transportation, buses aren’t the most comfortable. They’re usually crowded and kind of smelly, which makes for a rather unpleasant commute. They’re also not terribly aesthetically pleasing. However, there’s a special bus in Japan which trumps all other buses, and it’s this giant CATBUS! That’s right, a furry bus that resembles a cat.
This catbus is housed at the Studio Ghibli museum in Mitaka, Tokyo, and it’s inspired by the catbus in Hayao Miyazaki’s My Neighbor Totoro. In case you’ve forgotten, the bus in the film looked like this.
The catbus we’re talking about is basically a life-size plush toy and not intended for actual transportation, but still, it’s great fun for adults and children to play inside. Also, it’s cute as can be.
It would be pretty fun to live inside a plush cat with friends and family… just saying.
Look at that big old grin!
Unfortunately this catbus is only in Japan, but perhaps the trend will reach American shores. The demand would probably be huge, because it’s fun for the whole family.
Also, the eyes of the catbus glow at night!
Okay, it’s official: We have serious #lifegoals. If we can’t visit Japan, at least we can live vicariously through a cartoonish catbus.
We need a catbus in our lives, STAT because we all need something cute at regular intervals throughout the day, right?
