In the heart of Tokyo’s Ginza district, the neon-lit cylindrical building of San-ai Dream Center has stood since since 1963, and so has ‘Coicorin,’ a pair of nearly identical cats sculpted from Mikage-ishi, a type of Norwegian granite.

The sculpture was created by the modernist sculptor Masayuki Nagare, the famous “Samurai Artist“ whose works can be found in art museums across Japan and America. While the sculptures themselves are nothing but ordinary cats, this feline couple is known for their wish-granting powers.
