The beckoning cat, a lucky charm for inviting good luck and wealth, was born in Japan about 150 years ago during the Edo era.Generally, a beckoning cat raising its right paw is said to invite "money" and a beckoning cat raising its left paw to invite "people and customers". It's no exaggeration to say that the beckoning cat is a traditional Japanese lucky god: it has been beloved by the common people since the Edo era.The Maneki-Neko Museum collects and exhibits bout 5,000 beckoning cats from all over japan. Since the museum is a place that invites blessing, it's filled with customers' comments like "Won the lottery", "Found a good partner", "Became healthy" etc...Beckoning cat lovers call the museum a "Place of Good Fortune" of beckoning cats and it has accumulated a world class collection of beckoning cats from all over japan.
