Located outside of Tokyo’s bustling center, Gotokuji Temple is the perfect place for a close but great escape. This temple is famous for maneki-neko, the iconic cats that have their right paw raised as a sign of good luck. With its growing popularity, visitors from all around the world visit to witness these cat statues or purchase Japanese fortunes or ema plaques. Enjoy the hundreds of cats displayed throughout the temple, and be sure to snap a commemorative photo.

There are many places to explore on the temple grounds, such as the gorgeous gardens. The traditional Japanese buildings provide a calm atmosphere, making the stroll along the temple very relaxing. Visitors are able to see the gravestones of the li clan at the cemetery. It is a unique experience, as cemeteries in Japan are normally locked.
