Ghost of Tsushima Shinto Shrines are collectibles and hidden landmarks that must be discovered while exploring the Island of Tsushima. The Shinto Shrines are very important because they contain Omamori Charms and Wax Wood. Each time you find a Shinto Shrine in Ghost of Tsushima, you’ll have to honor it by praying.

Usually, the locations of these shrines can be found by following yellow birds; however, you will be able to find them faster if you use maps. There are 16 Shinto Shrines in the video game, and you’ll need to find all of them in order to unlock the Favor of the Kami Trophy. They are similar to the Inari Shrines that allow you to unlock new Charm Slots, but you should not confuse them.

To find these Ghost of Tsushima collectibles, you have three options. The first one is through exploration, and it requires your attention to the environment, especially to yellow birds that will eventually lead you to the locations of the hidden shrines. Alternatively, you can use the maps below and visit the locations of the shrines without wasting time. Finally, you can reveal them by liberating all Occupied Mongol Territories. 

One thing you need to remember here is that after you clear the Mongol presence on Tsushima, all locations appear on your map as question marks, and it is quite hard to know which location is a Shinto Shrine. Therefore, use the locations guide below to find these landmarks.

When looking for these shrines, your starting point is a Torii Gate. From there, follow the lamps, and after a long climbing section, you’ll get to the actual shrine. If you wish to see how many shrines you have found (track your progress), open the game’s menu and press L1/R1 to access the Collections tab.

Next, go to the Exploration sub-tab and look for the Shinto Shrines window. In the upper left corner, you can see the total amount of shrines in the game and the number of collectibles you have found.
