My Neighbor Totoro Beckonin Catbus New Year Ornament
Studio Ghibli anime traditional decoration item
The next time someone asks about Japan's relationship to cats, just point them to the My Neighbor Totoro Beckoning Catbus New Year Ornament. Not one, but two of Japan's most famous cats have been combined to create perhaps the most original New Year decorations you can find. Approximately 155 x 182 x 145 mm (6.1 x 7.2 x 5.7") big and made of sturdy polyester resin, this is an ornament you will own for many years to come!
For the few who need an explanation, the My Neighbor Totoro Beckoning Catbus New Year Ornament is a rethink of the maneki-neko concept, the beckoning cat you see in many Japanese shops inviting customers to come in. The difference here is that the cat part is played by Catbus, the twelve-legged feline whose hollow body serves as a bus in Hayao Miyazaki's 1988 anime classic My Neighbor Totoro! Holding a gold leaf (a sign of prosperity) and with the character for fortune on its forehead, this is the perfect way to celebrate New Year's, combining traditional and modern Japanese culture!
