Lucky Cat and Daruma are both traditional symbols of good luck in Japan.
The Lucky Cat, also known as Maneki-neko in Japanese, is a figurine of a cat with one or both paws raised, as if beckoning someone to come closer. It is believed to bring good fortune and wealth to its owner. The raised paw is often interpreted as beckoning money and customers to a business. The Lucky Cat is often displayed in shops, restaurants, and homes, and is available in different colors and styles.
The Daruma, on the other hand, is a traditional Japanese doll that represents perseverance and good luck. It is modeled after Bodhidharma, the founder of Zen Buddhism. Daruma dolls have round, roly-poly shapes and are usually red in color with a white beard and eyebrows. They come with blank eyes, which are filled in with one black dot to represent a wish or goal. When the goal is achieved, the other eye is filled in.
