Gotokuji Temple In Tokyo Filled With Thousands Of Lucky Cats
A temple in Japan with thousands of lucky cat figurines has tourists paw-ing in for the purr-fect social media snaps. Tokyo’s Gotokuji temple has thousands of maneki neko, or beckoning cats, on its grounds with the figures believed to bring good luck and said to have originated at the temple. The white cats have one paw raised - a lifted left paw inviting success in business, while a raised right for protection at home - and are stacked and scattered all around the temple. French tourist Anne Labaye filmed her visit to the temple, which is located near Gotokuji Station, a 15-minute train ride from Tokyo's Shinjuku Station.
