They say March comes in like a lion…well, how about a cat-shaped cable car? This whimsical little vehicle comes to us courtesy of the Ikoma Cable Railway, which has served the Kansai area, near Osaka, Japan, since 1918. I don’t think this particular car is that old, but it’s a big hit with tourists of all ages. The limitations of my banner space don’t quite give you the full effect—click here to see the image in all its feline glory, as well as some pictures of other cars on the line. One, as you might expect, is a dog. When they pass each other, interesting things happen:
