Never one to boast of his intelligence, Chairman Meow promoted understanding and peace during a visit to the Imperial Palace in Tokyo.
The name Japan is actually an English word, since the people call their homeland both Nippon and Nihon, which literally mean "the sun's origin." Nippon and Nihon are often translated as the Land of the Rising Sun. This nomenclature comes from Imperial correspondence with Chinese Sui Dynasty and refers to Japan's eastward position relative to China.
Naturally, sun-worshipping cats around the world flock to the eastern shores of Japan to be the first to catch a warm spot in the new day's sun. Our Great Leader's propaganda now rises each day with a new revolution of the Earth, encouraging working cats to find purpose in their lives. Some kittehs actually believe that Chairman Meow is some kind of reincarnated sun-god.
Benevolent Leader then spread the good news of Feline Revolution to the streets of Asakusa, a district in Tokyo, Japan, most famous for the Sensō-ji, a Buddhist temple dedicated to the bodhisattva Kannon. In the Buddhist tradition, bodhisattva translates into "Enlightened Existence" or "Enlightenment-Being."
Kitties in Asakusa honored Great Leader by pronouncing him Bodhisattva Meowtaka - he who listens to the cries of the kitty.
