What to expect

Learn about the manekineko, "beckoning cat", or "lucky cat", thought to be a lucky charm in Japanese tradition, at the Manekineko Art Museum in Osaka! You've seen this curious ceramic cat with its paw raised in Japan and almost every shop in Hong Kong—and at the museum tucked away in the hamlet of Kanayamaji, you'll learn about its origins, bust some myths surrounding the symbolic figurine, and see some 700 lucky cats collected from all over Japan. The manekineko figurine originated in the mid-19th century in either Tokyo (formerly Edo) or Kyoto. See the massive collection and fill out inorifuda (paper for writing prayers), or perhaps hang your wishes on bamboo in the museum or on the walls. You can even paint your figurine. Enjoy the museum's peaceful, temple-like feeling, as you enjoy browsing through the large and wooden cats, as well as small and ceramic figurines
