Hello, kitties! This peculiar spot deep in Setagaya is known as the cat temple – and rightfully so, as it’s littered with thousands of arm-waving lucky cats in all sizes across the temple compound. Gotokuji is said to be the birthplace of the famed maneki neko (beckoning cat), those charming little kitties that supposedly bring good luck and happiness.
We’re not just saying this because we live here, but Tokyo is probably one of the most picturesque places to snap an Instagram moment. From rooftop views and cool public art installations to stunning shrines, there’s literally something on every corner to keep you camera-happy. Not to mention, most of Tokyo's landmarks are great to visit both during the day and in the evening for gorgeous views, anytime of day.
