star Using a play-on-sounds of “Ta” (meaning “too much” or “many”) and “Kou” (“good luck” “happiness”), the symbol of this shrine is the octopus (Takou) in Japan. This temple is located in Meguro, Tokyo and is officially called “Jojuin Temple.” It has an octopus for a symbol and is named after a sailor who fought through rough seas and returned home safely. The legs of the octopus are intended to “suck” fortune and luck and cling to it for you.
