Maneki-nekos are a common Japanese lucky charm, which can bring benefits to the owner.

In the days of Yoshimitsu, the first floor was used as a reception hall; the second floor, built in the style of samurai houses, was where Yoshimitsu held private meetings with honored guests. The third floor was used for intimate meetings with friends, and tea ceremonies.
