Tanuki are cute little raccoon canids hidden throughout Shibuya in Ghostwire: Tokyo. There are 25 locations to discover, and like other collectibles in the game, they aren’t always easy to find. However, seeking them out will give you the Your Tail’s Showing trophy or achievement, as well as an outfit.
This Ghostwire: Tokyo guide will show you where to find all of the Tanuki in the game. Each of them is in the territory of a specific Torii Gate Shrine, and you can see how many are in an area by hovering of a Shrine’s icon on the map. Some Shrines (but not all) have Offering Boxes, at which you can spend 500 Meika to show the location of a Tanuki. You can also read the minds of cats for hints to nearby locations.
Tanuki disguise themselves as all manner of things, from vending machines to gravestones to billboards. You can tell an object is one of the mischievous little creatures by looking for a tail waving from an object.
Where to Find All Missing Tanuki in Ghostwire Tokyo
You’ll begin your quest for finding these critters after cleansing the Shiroyama Shrine in Chapter 2. Afterward, Boss Tanuki will appear near the Shrine and give you the Tanuki Hunt side quest. Once you’ve found all of the locations in Ghostwire: Tokyo, you’ll get another side quest, The Boss Tanuki, at Kirigaoka Shrine, rewarding you with the Tanuki outfit.
If you’re trying to get the trophies or achievements for all of the outfits in Ghostwire: Tokyo or completing all of the side quests, you’ll have to find all of these locations, as well. This guide shows you where to find them based on the order in which you cleanse the game’s shrines.
