This forest in Japan looks just like a cat

This forest in central Japan looks just like a cat, complete with pointy ears. Drone footage filmed on July 8 shows the scene, with the forest of trees in Ono City, Fukui Prefecture looking remarkably like the beloved titular character from the 1988 hit animated fantasy movie "My Neighbour Totoro," from the Studio Ghibli stable. In the movie, the rotund Totoro is a forest spirit and mixture of cat, raccoon and owl with pointy ears. The forest, known as Yamabushi-Iwa, is made up of chestnut trees, cherry blossom trees and two tall cedars, according to its owner.
