IKIMASHO! x DAZED: TOKYO’S CAT TEMPLE

Justin Egli Cat Temple 7


“Gotokuji is an area of the city obsessed with all things feline and many believe its temple to be the birthplace of ‘maneki-neko’ – the cats you’ve seen with one paw held high”


I have a new article out in DAZED, exploring the area of Gotokuji in West Tokyo. Gotokuji is a quiet collection of backstreets, bakeries, and flower shops with people going about their daily life. It’s not unlike hundreds of other small stations in Tokyo – apart from one thing. Cats. Lots of them.

Check out the article here.
