Maneki-Neko
Question: What's Maneki-Neko and what does it represent??
Answer: In front of a shop you will probably see a cat with one for both paws up, it's called a maneki-neko and it means "inviting cat". Their even ones with paws that actually move and the cat is inviting people to come in the shop and spend their money to help the shop's business grow. But you don't need to be a shop owner to have one of these cats. There are cats that invite other things in, such as good luck.
You can see many cat or even pick up your own cat at the Nakamise shopping arcade near Senso-ji temple in Asakusa. The Tokyo walking city tours all start in Asakusa. After the Asakusa, you explore the west side of Tokyo or the east side of Tokyo.
