Located on Kappabashi-dori, or Tokyo’s Kitchen Street, Koide Shoten (a.k.a. Orner Koide) is one of the few shops in Tokyo to specialise in maneki-neko. They have a vast selection of beckoning felines in a diverse range of styles and prices – you can pick up a little cat here for ¥220 or bigger, fancier ones for many multitudes of that, plus funky designs such as a daruma-maneki-neko crossover or wind chimes topped with a cat. If you can't make it to their physical store, note they also sell their goods online through Rakuten.
