This Japanese cat lantern will bring you the good fortune of maneki neko

The Japanese lantern originated in... China! It is inspired by it, with some differences. The structure of the Chinese lamp is mounted in meridians (vertical) while the Japanese is in parallel (horizontal). The advantage: it can be folded up like an accordion to store it without taking up space.

Made from fine paper, the Japanese lamp is ideal for combining the useful with the pleasant. Washi paper is made from rice paper or mulberry fibers. The wires that hold the structure were once made of bamboo, today they are more of iron.

The cat depicted on this paper light is a maneki neko in Japanese. It is known to bring good luck and prosperity. Often sported at the entrance of restaurants and shops, it is not uncommon to see it with one or two legs raised.

Here are some tips for using this Japanese lantern :
