Product Description

This is an authentic Japanese Tanuki statues which produced according to the "Shigaraki ware" pottery style of Shigaraki City, Shiga Prefecture, are one of Japan's most well-known lucky charms. Believed to be bringers of commercial prosperity, they are often placed outside the entrance to shops. The standard tanuki has a good- natured face and a chubby, round body. He wears a braided hat and stands with his head slightly tilted, holding a traditional Japanese tokkuri (sake flask) and a promissory note (an unpaid bill) in his hands.
