Ghost of Tsushima Shinto Shrines are collectibles and hidden locations that must be discovered while exploring the Island of Tsushima in the latest video game developed by Sucker Punch.
The Ghost of Tsushima 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.
Throughout the following Ghost of Tsushima Shinto Shrines locations guide, I will share with you the positions of all Shinto Shrines in the video game.
The guide includes detailed maps that will point you in the right direction, as well as hints and tips on where to find these collectibles in Ghost of Tsushima.
Keep in mind that 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 very similar to the Inari Shrines that allow you to unlock new Charm Slots, but you should not confuse them.
Before we begin here are several fast facts and FAQs.
A Shinto Shrine is a hidden location and a landmark you’ll need to find while exploring the world.
It counts as a collectible and it includes a platforming section since usually these Shrines are located in places hard to reach.
Ghost of Tsushima features 16 hidden Shinto Shrines.
Place Jin in front of it and press R2 on your controller to honor the shrine.
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. The second method is faster.
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.
Besides Omamori Charms, the Shinto Shrines are also required for the Favor of the Kami Trophy.
An important thing you need to remember before leaving is that each shrine you honor rewards a unit of Wax Wood and a Charm, but there is also an additional Wax Tree nearby.
Since this Ghost of Tsushima resource is very rare, do not descend the shrine’s location before finding it.
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.
