Today’s Japan Photo: Maneki Neko 招き猫

Today's Japan Photo: Maneki Neko 招き猫

For Today’s Japan Photo, we take a look at these adorable Maneki Neko 招き猫, which are common Japanese good luck charms that is believed to bring good luck to its owner.

The figurine depicts a cat (traditionally a calico Japanese Bobtail) beckoning with an upright paw, and is usually displayed—often at the entrance—in shops, restaurants, pachinko parlors, and other businesses.
