Clicking your way around the map will take you through various buildings and outdoor spaces in Onomichi, all while introducing you to local kitties along the way.
Each of them gets a pop-up bubble with, presumably, more information about the cats, but I don’t read Japanese.
You also get a few quiet background sounds of shoppers milling around, the occasional YouTube video of cats roaming the city and the odd miaow to keep you company.
If you want to jump around specific points of interest (cats, mostly, unsurprisingly), you can do that using the mini map in the lower left corner of the screen.
