Description

Description:
Many beckoning puppets (derived from the beckoning cat) are for sale at the Nakamise tourist market in Tokyo, Japan.

The maneki-neko (beckoning cat) is a common Japanese figure, usually made of ceramic in modern times, which is often believed to bring good luck to the owner. The figure depicts a cat beckoning with an upright paw, and is usually displayed in shops, restaurants, and other businesses.

Some of the sculptures are electric or battery-powered and have a slow-moving paw beckoning. The maneki-neko is sometimes also called the welcoming cat, lucky cat, money cat, happy cat, or fortune cat in English.
