Background

The Lucky Cat has been part of Japanese and Chinese folklore for hundreds of years. It is believed that a Lucky Cat standing in a shop front, for example, will bring good fortune to the workers, and indeed the customers. Interestingly, the symbolism behind any lucky cat can vary, depending on its colour, which paw is raised, and what it is holding. For Japan Centre's entire range of Lucky Cat gifts, browse our Lucky Cats and Dolls section.
