Maneki Neko is also known as Beckoning Cat or Welcoming Cat. It is a common Japanese ceramic figure which is thought to bring good luck. If the cat's right paw is raised it is supposed to attract money; if the left paw if raised it is supposed to attract customers. You will therefore often see these figures in shops, restaurants and other businesses. If you visit Japan you will be able to buy Maneki Neko piggy banks and key-rings.
