— In-game description[src]

The Meditation Turtle was a treasure found in Turning Japanese of Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time. It was worth 199 coins and had a time limit of approximately 20 seconds to return to the safe house.


The meditation turtle resembles a Buddha statue. It sits on its bottom, facing forward with its eyes closed. Its hands are folded inward, holding a white flower. It has three white toes on each green foot and three fingers on each "hand." It is a bald turtle, with a yellow-orange under belly, and a yellow-green shell. Its base is silver with tiny bolts all around it.


The meditation turtle is located near the northwest corner of the map. It is on top of a house that has a chimney stack that the Ninja Spire Jump can be used on, and there is a lamp post to its left, and a tree to its right. A crane guard is stationed atop the building across from it.
