The temple is well known for its massive collection of Maneki-Neko, literally beckoning cats.


The cats are a common Japanese charm thought to bring good luck to the owner. They are often displayed at the entrance to shops and restaurants but Goutoku Temple goes one further and displays over 1000 cats throughout its grounds.
