[What is a Maneki Neko?]
Maneki Neko originated in the Edo period and have since been widely loved as a lucky charm that brings money and people. When the right hand is raised it will bring you money and when the left hand it raised it will bring people. Also, it is said that the higher the hand, the further away it will attract people. The color of the cat also has meaning - white is said to bring you luck, red keeping disease away and black keeping evil away. Please keep your favorite Maneki Neko by your side and it will fulfill each humble wish.
