The Meditation Turtle is a treasure found in Turning Japanese of Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time. It is worth 199 coins and has a time limit of approximately 20 seconds to be returned to the safe house before it disappears.


The Meditation Turtle resembles a Buddha statue, sitting 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 foot and three white fingers on both "hands." The turtle has a bald head, and has a yellow-orange under belly, as well as a yellow-green shell. The base is silver with tiny bolts lined 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. 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.
