Maneki-neko Painting Experience

Painting experience at Japan's largest Maneki-Neko museum where about 5,000 items from all over Japan are on display all together

Paint a ceramic lucky cat at the Japan's largest beckoning cat museum where 5,000 beckoning cats from all over Japan including Seto are on display all together. Seto city of Aichi Prefecture is known as a producing area with history of beckoning cats since Meiji era. Maneki-Neko was born in the Edo period about 150 years ago as a charm to bring luck and fortune. It is believed in general that a cat with its right hand raised brings money, and a cat with its left hand raised will invite people and customers. If you want to invite money, people and customers all together, there are beckoning cats who raise both hands. The building of the Maneki-Neko Museum is reminiscent of the western-style building of Seto in the Taisho era (1912-1926), becoming a new landmark of the city center of Seto with its impressive appearance. You can take your painted Maneki-Neko home on the same day. You can choose a cat with its right paw, left paw, or both paws raised. Japanese tea is served in the original cat-shaped tea pot made of ceramic from Seto with the original Maneki-Neko cookie. You will also get an original indigo-dyed Maneki-Neko hand towel made in Japan. From small children to adults, all can enjoy the experience together.
