'Bobzilla' Conquers Japan

Bob took Tokyo by storm when he visited the Land of the Rising Sun for the premiere of A Street Cat Named Bob, the heart-warming movie about his friendship with James. 

The ginger superstar lapped up the adulation of his small army of Japanese fans, many of whom turned out at Tokyo Airport to greet him and James on arrival after their long flight. 

The pair spent a week talking to the Japanese Press and appearing on tv shows. The highlight of the trip came when they attended a premiere screening of the film where James gave a brief talk on the production. They also spent time with a group of Tokyo’s Big Issue sellers, helping to publicise the magazine’s work to help the homeless in the city.
