Maneki Neko Left & Right Hand Meaning

Maneki neko beckoning cats can be found with either left or right paw raised and sometimes with both hands raised in a "banzai" pose.

Maneki Neko Left & Right Hand Meaning.


What is the difference in significance between a maneki neko cat with its left hand raised as opposed to the right hand?

Originally maneki neko had their left hands raised as Japanese traditionally drank from sake cups with their left hands and poured it with their right hands. To be called a left-hander or "lefty" was to be acknowledged as a drinker and socialite.

Maneki Neko Left & Right Hand Meaning.


Thus left hand raised has the meaning of beckoning friends and welcoming good fortune, happiness and harmony.

Maneki neko with their right hands raised came later and signifies a wish for good luck financially as money was handled with the right hand.

GoodsFromJapan has a large selection of both ceramic and solar maneki neko beckoning cats.

Gundam figurines from Amazon Japan & Yahoo Auctions

Gundam figurines are a popular item on GoodsFromJapan.com.


"Gundam" originates from a Japanese TV "space opera" series, Mobile Suit Gundam, created by the Sunrise group of animators, that first appeared on the Japanese airwaves: the Nagoya Broadcasting Network, back in April 1979 (when Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive" was top of the pops).

In the three decades since then, the Gundam franchise has blossomed to cover a range of media such as video games, movies, manga comics, and figurines.

A Gundam is, as the TV series title says, a "mobile suit"—the ultimate power suit in that it equips the wearer (really the "pilot") with the ability to access places, protect and shoot to kill as only a machine can.

One of the Gundam saga's major attractions is that these otherwise highly fantastical machines are firmly grounded in real world physics and mechanics. They run out of power, they wear out, they need reloading with ammunition. This is paralleled by a realistic human drama that goes on between the Gundam "wearers," whose personalities and ways of doing things change over time and with experience.

There are countless models of Gundam Mobile Suit, and all of them are available as plastic models, either do-it-yourself or ready-assembled. Gundam figurines from Japan are very high quality, intricately molded, and beautifully painted. Gundam models portray the ultimate blend of brute force and sophisticated styling.



GoodsFromJapan gets regular requests from overseas customers for Gundam figurines available new or second-hand on Yahoo Auctions Japan or Amazon Japan: both of which are generally cater to the Japanese domestic market only.

GoodsFromJapan requires pre-payment by PayPay, then we purchase (or in the case of the typical auction, bid) on behalf of you the customer. We then safely and securely repack the goods for sending overseas, and dispatch them using the 100% reliable, super-fast JapanPost EMS service, trackable online and fully insured.
