This charm allows you to have two temporary buffs at one time. The Tanuki hardiness charm can double the duration of a temporary buff. This is why it is important to find all Tanuki Locations in Ghostwire Tokyo.

The Tanuki Outfit

On finding all the Tanukis, the boss Tanuki will call for a meeting. This meeting takes place at the Kirigaoka Shrine. The boss Tanuki will thank you and as a reward, you will get the complete Tanuki Outfit.

The Tanukis can be a little hard to find but your spirit sense will help you along the way and you can see their tiny raccoon tails swinging making them fairly easy to spot. Interacting with cats will also help you as they will give you clues on their locations if the Tanukis are in the 20-meter radius of the cat.
