More Details

[Some Nishiki Manekineko]
Dyeing is a traditional technique that has been passed down from ancient times to the pottery town of Seto, where the white base is painted with cobalt pigment (Kuresu paint) and then glazed and fired. "Some Nishiki Maneki Neko" has the elegance of dyeing on pure white porcelain skin and the maedare that is characteristic of Seto Maneki Neko, which is said to be the "hometown of Maneki Neko", and is finished to satisfy pottery lovers. The slightly chic style with a Seto feel is a gem suitable for giving to genuine Maneki Neko fans.

[Maneki Neko of Yakushi Kiln]
Yakushi Kiln is a product brand of the pottery workshop Chugai Pottery Garden in Seto City, Aichi Prefecture, a town of pottery with a history of more than 1,000 years. It was named Yakushi Kiln because there was a shrine of Yakushi Nyorai in the place where it was found.

It is generally said that the beckoning cat's right hand invites "money", the left hand invites "many people", and both hands invite "both". Maneki Neko is also popular with many people when it invites "health and longevity" with the help of Yakushi Nyorai.

In addition, all the products of the Maneki Neko in the Yakushi Kiln are supervised by the Maneki Neko Museum, and each one is hand-produced by craftsmen with all their heart.
