Finding and locating Tanuki in ‘Ghostwire: Tokyo’ helps players earn more XP, emotes, and charms that help a great deal in combat. Moreover, finding Tanuki in ‘Ghostwire: Tokyo’ is a part of the side mission that players can undertake after cleansing the Shiroyama Shrine.

After clearing the Shiroyama Shrine, players will find the boss Tanuki inside the temple, waiting for players to approach it, following which the side mission starts. Meanwhile, this guide will help you track the Tanuki hunt side mission and will help you find all the Tanuki locations in ‘Ghostwire: Tokyo.’

The mission is called “Tanuki Hunt” and unlocks your “Tail’s Showing” trophy upon completion. The side mission requires players to find all 25 Tanuki scattered all over the Shibuya district. Furthermore, the task of finding Tanuki locations in ‘Ghostwire: Tokyo’ is not a pleasant one. However, Akito can pray at the shrines’ offering boxes, which reveal the precise location of a Tanuki nearby that shrine.

On the contrary, not every shrine in ‘Ghostwire: Tokyo’ has an offering box. It is there that a player can rely on spectral vision; just as players can find Jizo statues using spectral vision, they can find Tanuki using spectral vision. At the same time, finding Tanuki using spectral vision can be tricky. While Tanuki all over the map has transformed themselves into various objects resembling the ones in the game, it can be hard to identify them.

With only a tail that differentiates them from the objects, spectral vision can help players look for that wagging Tanuki tail. As for the Tanuki location guide for Ghostwire: Tokyo, let’s get started.
