How to find all collectibles in Ghostwire Tokyo

Don't be spooked by how many there are!

Ghostwire Tokyo arrives for Windows PC and PS5 later this week, and its open world has plenty to keep players busy.

There are plenty of collectibles to track down across Tango Gameworks’ version of Tokyo, and they come in three distinct flavours: Jizo Statues that can boost your maximum ‘ammo’ for Akito’s Elemental Weaving  skills, Relics that can be sold for the game’s Meiko currency to Relic-Hunting Nekomata NPCs, and Tanuki hidden across the map in the form of random objects. But how many collectibles are there in Ghostwire Tokyo, and how can you locate them all?

Ghostwire Tokyo Jizo Statues

Jizo statues are small stone statues found across Ghostwire Tokyo‘s map, mostly resembling the Buddha or children. These statues represent Jizo Bosatsu, guardian deity of children and travellers. In the game, each statue is aligned to one of the three elements of your Elemental Weaving skills – air, water or fire. Praying at a Jizo Statue will raise your SP for the corresponding Elemental Weaving ability by 1.

How many Jizo Statues are there?

In total, there are 52 Jizo Statues to find in Ghostwire Tokyo. Each area of the map, as broken up by the Torii Gates shows how many statues can be found in that  particular zone, helping you narrow down your search. These counts do not separate the different element statues, however.

How do I find the Jizo Statues?

There are two main ways to locate these statues, as they are often tucked away in alcoves or down Tokyo’s side streets. The most obvious answer is exploration – wander around the city long enough and you’re bound to run into them. You can also detect the statues using Akito’s Spectral Vision ability, which will highlight any in your immediate vicinity. Note however that unlike some other collectibles, Jizo statues will not be added to your map until after you’ve interacted with them. You can also feed the dogs wandering about Dog Food from the game’s convenience stores – most will reward you with a tidy sum of Meika, but others will lead you to nearby collectibles, including the Jizo Statues.

Your other option is to visit the Offering Boxes located near many of the game’s Torii Gates, which allow you to donate Meika and make a wish. While these include wishes to restore health or SP, you can also choose the option “I wish I could find more Jizo statues”. If your wish is fulfilled – which is guaranteed if you donate the full 500 Meika amount – this will add an icon to your map highlighting a statue you hadn’t yet located.

Ghostwire Tokyo Relics

Relics are items relating to Japanese history, culture and folklore, hidden across both Ghostwire Tokyo‘s main map as well as some indoor areas like the Shibuya Underground. Relics can be exchanged with Relic-Hunting Nekomata at their stalls for large amounts of Meika, the game’s currency. The Nekomata will also give you bonus rewards for giving them certain numbers of Relics, including consumable items, clothing, photo mode emotes and camera filters.

How many Relics are there?

In total, there are a whopping 123 Relics to be found in Ghostwire Tokyo. Scattered across the map are 13 Relic-Hunting Nekomata, each with their own shortlist of these Relics they wish for you to find.

How do I find the Relics?

Like most collectibles in Ghostwire Tokyo, you can find Relics as you explore the game’s world. You’ll often find them in the shrines after cleansing the Torii Gates, as well as hidden away in drawers and corners that your missions may not walk you past. If you do get in range of a Relic however – even if you don’t notice it – its location will be marked on your map. Using your Spectral Vision ability will also highlight any Relics in range too.

Each time you visit a Relic-Hunting Nekomata for the first time, the list of Relics they’re after will be added to the Nekomata Requests tab under your missions. While speaking to the Nekomata or in the menus, you can then highlight any undiscovered Relics, which will mark your map with a yellow circle that shows the general area the Relic can be found in. You can also hover over the yellow circle to get a small explanation of what the item is; being told you’re looking for a traditional item that is adorned to a roof certainly helps to narrow down the search.

Ghostwire Tokyo Tanuki

Tanuki, also known as “Japanese raccoon dogs”, are a real-life animal native to Japan that also features heavily in Japanese folklore. Known as shape-shifting tricksters, tales of these mythical creatures typically depict them as being mischievous and in possession of extremely large testicles – thankfully, Ghostwire Tokyo‘s tanuki are a little bit more modest. After meeting the boss tanuki during an early story mission (oddly depicted with the accent of a New York native), you’ll be advised that his crew are hidden all across Tokyo, disguised as everyday objects – but with their telltale raccoon tails still showing. Finding each tanuki and speaking to them will reward you with emotes for use in the game’s photo mode.

How many tanuki are there?

In total, there are 25 tanuki hidden away in Ghostwire Tokyo‘s sprawling map. Each area of the map as broken up by the Torii Gates also shows how many tanuki can be found in that particular zone, helping you narrow down your search.

How do I find the tanuki?

As you roam the streets of Tokyo, observant players will spot the telltale tails of the tanuki all over the place, from rooftops to construction sites. Many missions will pull you past these hidden tricksters, but your only hint to their location is their tail, and sometimes movement from an object that shouldn’t be doing so. Hidden tanuki can also range in size from an object similar to themselves, to something much bigger. Tanuki will also be highlighted when using Spectral Vision in their vicinity as well. Unlike some other collectibles, tanuki will not be added to your map until after you’ve interacted with them.

Your other option is to visit the Offering Boxes located near many of the game’s Torii Gates, which allow you to donate Meika and make a wish. While these include wishes to restore health or SP, you can also choose the option “I wish I could find more tanuki”. If your wish is fulfilled — which is guaranteed if you donate the full 500 Meika amount — this will add an icon to your map highlighting a new tanuki for you to track down.
