The Legend of Maneki-Neko
This is one of the most fascinating stories in Japanese culture.
Usually made from ceramic or plastic, they depict a Japanese Bobtail cat with its paw raised in a beckoning gesture.
Also known as the welcoming cat, lucky cat, money cat, happy cat, and beckoning cat, the Maneki-Neko figurine is believed to bring good fortune to businesses.
The cat’s raised arm can be either its left or right, depending on what its owner wants. If its left arm is raised, the Maneki-Neko is inviting more customers, while the right paw raised invites wealth and money.
Due to its popularity in Chinatowns, the Maneki-Neko is frequently mistaken for being Chinese. However, the figurine is believed to have first appeared during the later part of the Edo period in Japan (1603–1868).
Although there are many stories surrounding the true origin of the Lucky Cat, one of the most popular tales of all is the legend of the Gotokuji Temple. This story is about the local priest who looked after Gotokuji Temple in Tokyo who, despite his poverty, would share his food with his cat.
One day, a man who was said to have been a samurai took shelter under one of the temple’s nearby trees. The man saw the cat who was beckoning him to come into the temple. As he approached the cat, a bolt of lightning struck the tree he was under, causing it to crash down onto the ground where he would’ve been taking shelter had the cat not signalled him to move.
Grateful to the cat the samurai, who turned out to be a very wealthy man, rewarded the temple with funding. Years later when the cat died, a special burial was made in honour of what we know today as the lucky cat.
