An auspicious item unique to Japan, Maneki-neko (literally “beckoning cat”) beckons good luck for you with an adorable gesture.
It is said that the origin of Maneki-neko is rooted in the culture of Edo (present-day Tokyo) townspeople that flourished during the Edo Period (1603 – 1868).
The figurine brings you different types of luck depending on which hand it is holding up. It is said that the one holding up its right hand brings in money and the one holding up its left hand attracts people.
Beckon good luck by placing the figurine at a position higher than people’s line of sight, facing toward the entrance.
