Maneki Neko goes sumo.

Ooomg all of these maneki nekos are so adorable! This one looks really huggable and chubby, cute! ;D You’ve earned a fave! I’ve loved maneki nekos since I was little, and I have a few at home but I always wanted a “real” one from Asia :). If you want to help a fellow maneki neko-lover out, I actually have a maneki neko-design up for scoring at Threadless right now, and it would love to get fives <3

The world can’t get enough of kawaii maneki nekos! :3

This is one of my favorite recent maneki neko :D Do you know what it says on the coin? It looks different from traditional.

I know. This one says sho-huku = happiness. I found six different blessings (ken-ko, cho-ju, dai-kiti , kai-un, sho-huku or kin-un) and that one is what I like most. ^_^ Sho-huku is not as popular as the Ryo coin, but the more I crawl through info-pages the more coin blessings I find ^^;.

Cool, I'll have to do some more research then. I'm making a 'maneki kitsune' and I'd rather have a more interesting phrase than the ryo coin on it. I'd only seen one other one so far but it didn't have a good reference pic and I don't know Japanese very well.

You can´t really combine Maneki + Kistune. If you mean you wanna make a kitsune figurine, it should be a Inari Kitsune. you really should do more research, it´s not that complicated even if you don´t speak fluent japanese.

I assumed Maneki was the type of cat those lucky cat statues are. I know there aren't really kitsune of that type, I was just doing it for fun. He's pretending to be a maneki neko.
