Maneki Neko

A cute little cat doll with its paw raised is often found sitting in souvenir shops and folk craft shops. This cat doll is called Maneki Neko (beckoning or welcoming cat) and it is popular in Japan as a lucky charm that invites happiness. It is said that the one with its right paw raised invites money and the one with its left paw raised invites people.
