Gootokuji 豪徳寺 Gotoku-Ji

- quote -
Gotokuji is located in the quiet Setagaya Ward of Tokyo, away from the hustle and the bustle of the city.



While there are several legends about the origins of this manekineko cat charm, one of the widely known story regards Gotokuji as the place of origin.
Legend holds that the maneki neko originated back in Edo period, when a feudal lord from Hikone (a city in present-day Shiga Prefecture) passed by a temple in Edo. There, he met a cat that beckoned him to come into the temple. The lord followed the cat and decided to stop by the temple; soon after, a thunderstorm came by. The lord, who took shelter at the temple, became thankful of the cat’s deed; eventually, he collected enough funds to rebuild and claim the temple as his family temple, which eventually became Gotokuji.
As time went on, people began to offer maneki neko figurines to the temple as a sign of gratitude when their wishes came true.
