When you visit Japan,
Have you ever found these waving cat?
This is called Maneki Neko, literally "Beckoning Cat", a traditional talisman (symbol of good fortune) since ancient times in Japan!
They are often seen in the windows of businesses there, welcoming customers inside.
You may wonder if there's any different meaning about which side of paw up... and Yes, When the talisman is lifting up its left paw, it is supposedly beckoning customers to enter the store. When right paw, attracting money and good fortune! (you see piggy banks in the shape of the Maneki Neko hold up their right paw)
black cats have traditionally been considered lucky in Japan, able to ward off evil or cure illness in children, but tri-colored male cats are rarely found among the world's cat population. so, perhaps, the tri-colored Maneki Neko is considered most lucky....
Why don't you get these cute, fortunate Cat talisman as souvenir when you visit Japan? Must be nice decoration at the entrance of your house. The talisman always welcome your guests!
