Fortune Cat (Maneki-neko)
The Maneki-neko, or Fortune Cat in English, is a traditional Japanese figurine which is believed to bring good luck to its owner. The literal translation of Maneki-neko is “Beckoning Cat”, because the cat is depicted with its paw in an upward (or beckoning) position. In Japan, it is not uncommon to find this lucky charm at the entrance of shops and restaurants.
