It is believed Maneki Neko first appeared during the later part of the Edo period (1603–1867). A common Japanese sculpture, which is believed to bring good luck to the owner. The sculpture depicts a cat beckoning with an upright paw, and is usually displayed many times at the entrance, in shops, restaurants, pachinko parlors, and other businesses. A raised left paw supposedly attracts money, while a raised right paw protects it.
