nor is a tanuki a dog. A tanuki is a Japanese Raccoon Dog, which is different creature altogether.

If you need a tanuki raccoon dog statue--and it's hard to imagine who wouldn't--this just might be the tanuki for you. The craftsmanship is really quite good, from modeling to casting to the final painting. Further, this tanuki is definitely rated for All Audiences, lacking as it does the traditional anatomical attributes that might render it unsuitable for children. (Or, rather, unsuitable to their parents. Children would likely find the traditional mythological tanuki features in question hilarious.) That said, this SHOULD NOT be purchased as a toy for children. It's a solid, hard, hefty item that could be damaged or could DO damage. Think of it as a sturdy display piece or a fully functional paperweight.

This little fellow comes from China, although the mythology he's part of is distinctly Japanese. He has black felt on his base to keep him from scratching whatever surface he's placed on. Strictly speaking, he's a bake-danuki--a tanuki yōkai. Like the magical fox--the kitsune--he's a shape-shifter.

Really cute, much higher quality than what I originally thought it would be. I am very happy. The statue arrived much faster than expected.

I was excited when i ordered my Tanuki statue, it has very nice reviews so i went for it, unfortunately it doesn't look like the picture, the paint is not within its lines, and overall it looks very cheap.

I would not recommend this.

Adorable Tanuki! Definitely not R rated, but you can still see he's "endowed" properly to be a Tanuki. Love these guys and this one is well made and heavy.

My daughter wanted this little dog statue which looks like a raccoon so we bought it for her. She loves Japanese things. It's very cute. She placed it on her dresser with her other Japanese figurines.

This statue arrived today and boy, is it heavy! The colors on the statue are bright, giving it a cartoony look. I have a few very minor issues where the paint is uneven on the statue but overall I am satisfied with it. I would recommend this to everyone. It is very cute and will make fans of japanese culture very happy.

If you find your saki bottle empty or missing this is the guy that's responsible. Very nice model I also bought the Maneki Neko's from this same maker. Very heavy NOT A TOY. I keep him low near where my lamp is and he's a very nice model.

This little guy is perfect! Looks just like the picure. Stands about 4 1/2 inches tall. Very solid and heavy. Paint is done very neatly and I see no chips or imperfections on him at all. Very cute!
