Japan's premier Manekineko Museum.

This building with neoclassic-influenced design dates back from the Taisho period and is home to over 1,000 “Manekineko” beckoning cats, making it Japan’s largest museum of these interesting statues.

Manekineko Museum

A “Manekineko” is a porcelain cat figurine holding one paw aloft to invite people; some people believe that the right paw in the air invites money, while the left paw invites customers. You will often see “Manekineko” dolls in Japanese shopfronts, holding out a wish for more prosperous business.
Come and see for yourself this cute place and spend some time at the café for a break, or even try your hand at painting one for yourself at the Painting Experience Corner.
