Photographer's Note

Going down a stair in Kyoto, this strange shop was eye catching... I really don't know how they can make buiseness on cats.

In fact I know : in japan (and I think in other asian country), the cat with an appealing hand is good for buiseness. It's a 'good fortune' representation. It is not rare to see lots of these cats in the front of a shop. But it is the first time I saw a shop that sells those cats.
Remember one thing : in asia, the hand like this is to say "Come here". Here it is used for money calling.
