Maneki Neko Museum

Japan, 865-1 Kinzanji, Kita-ku, Okayama City, Okayama Prefecture 701-2151

On the slope of a remote mountain village, there is a beckoning cat museum with the theme of beckoning cats. In this old-fashioned Japanese house, you can see one of the best collections in Japan of over 800 beckoning cats of all sizes. Lucky cats also have the meaning of bringing good luck, and some even carry gold coins or small coins. The museum shop sells original beckoning cats. You can also paint an unglazed beckoning cat to create your one and only original beckoning cat in the world.
