Gotokuji cat temple

The Setagaya Line runs through suburban Tokyo. This charming tramway gives you a glimpse of everyday streets houses and people in nearby towns you would hardly think you were near Tokyo at all.

Stopping on this line at Miyanosaka station and only a few mins walk you will find Gotokuji Temple. If you love the Maneki Neko (bekoning cat or lucky cat) you will love this temple it’s full of them!

Apparently this temple is said to be the place where these familiar cats originate.
