Cat in Japan Myths

The Maneki Neko, literally "Beckoning Cat"; also known as Welcoming Cat or Lucky Cat or Money cat or Fortune Cat is a common Japanese sculpture, often made of porcelain or ceramic, which is believed to bring good luck to the owner. The sculpture depicts a cat (traditionally a Japanese Bobtail) beckoning with an upright paw, and is usually displayed—many times at the entrance—in shops, restaurants, pachinko parlors, and other businesses. A raised right paw supposedly attracts money, while a raised left paw attracts customers.
