Ghostwire: Tokyo – All Tanuki Locations

Ghostwire: Tokyo is a game chock-full of things to do, and collectibles to find. Few are as elusive as the hidden Tanuki that star in the

"Tanuki Hunt" side quest. Brought to your attention by Boss Tanuki, it is up to Akito and KK to find and return all 25 lost Tanuki. This is easier said than done.

Tanuki are notorious hiders, and this is dialed up even further when thrown into a city under siege by all manner of ghouls and ghosts. Taking the form of inanimate objects – albeit ones with telling tails – you are going to have to wander all of Tokyo if you want to nab the sweet reward waiting at the end.

Additional Rewards For Collecting Tanuki

Collecting Tanuki will reward Akito with a new emote to use when messing around with the Photo Mode. These don't provide much gameplay incentive to hunt them down, however, every five Tanuki found will grant a permanent passive bonus called a Charm. Charms don't need to be equipped, unlike Prayer Beads.
