Photo of lucky cats in Japan in Tokyo, Japan

The beckoning cat is a symbol of good luck in Japan. These ones are fixed, but you can also get animated ones, where the paw is battery or solar powered. The gesture looks like a wave to westerners, but is a Japanese beckoning gesture, inviting in luck, people, wealth or customers depending on your interpretation.
