"Ghost of Tsushima": Find hidden altars and get a trophy

"Ghost of Tsushima" entices with a whole series of hidden trophies. One of them is "Honor the Spirits". You can only get them if you find ten hidden altars on the island and bow to them. We have a guide for you on where to find the sanctuaries.

For "Honor the Spirits" you have to pay attention and search your surroundings carefully to find the hidden altars. Nobody knows exactly how many there are in the game. But: For the hidden trophy you only have to find ten shrines and bow to them.

They are not shown on the map and will not be if you have already found them. Instead, your surroundings tell you that you have been successful: If you are standing in front of a sign with a black figure that bows slightly forward, you are correct. Now swipe down on your touchpad and you bow. A small animation (flying insects, fluttering birds, lightning strikes, etc.) in the area shows you that you have been successful.

Notice

There are hidden shrines in all three areas, but you can complete the necessary ten bows in Izuhara.

Hidden Altars in Izuhara: Enough for the Trophy

Izuhara is the starting area in the game – and conveniently you will find (at least) ten hidden altars there. For this you have to explore the island extensively and deviate from the routes that the main and side missions give you. All hidden sanctuaries are freely accessible and do not have to be completed as part of a special story.

Tip : Unfortunately, you cannot fast travel to the hidden shrines, even if you have already found them. But: You can usually teleport yourself near them to get to them faster.

# 1 Buddha statue at the Golden Temple

The Golden Temple is a central place in Izuhara that you should explore extensively. If you go up a stone staircase to the left from the main square of the pagoda, you will find a large Buddha statue that represents a hidden altar. Bow down to her and you will see a flock of green butterflies flying around.

The Buddha statue at the Golden Temple is a hidden shrine.

# 2 Tadayori's resting place

If you unlock "The Legend of Tadayori" in Act 1, you will find a resting place in the middle of a field of purple flowers. The shrine in the middle is the hidden altar. Bow down and flowers will blow around your nose.

Tip : You can also reach the shrine outside of the mission, but then it is a little more difficult to find. The mission, on the other hand, directs you to the right place.

Purple flowers blow around you at Tadayori's resting place.

# 3 Cemetery at Yoichi's Crossing

Northeast of the Golden Temple you will find a Mongol camp at Yoichi's intersection. As an undiscovered place, the camp is marked with a question mark and is so easy to find. If you have already freed it from the Mongols, you can teleport yourself there directly by fast travel. A little north of the camp you will find a cemetery. There you walk up the slope and see a heap of small praying statues. Take a bow and little fireflies buzz around.

# 4 Pillar of Honor at the Kaneda Inlet

At the northernmost end of Izuhara you will find a pillar of honor on the beach. Look carefully: it is decorated with a sign showing the person bowing. Take a bow and numerous crabs crawl across the beach.

Tip : The column is permanently marked on your map once you have found it. You can easily travel there via fast travel in case you missed bowing while exploring.

# 5 Riverside by the Kechi fishing village

Once you have reached the Kechi fishing village, a trip to the riverside is worthwhile. There you will find a small wooden dock. On one corner you can see the familiar sign. Bow down and small fish will jump out of the water.

# 6 Tombstone east of Goldpelt Shrine

If you mentally draw a triangle between the Golden Temple, the Adachi Estate and the Gold Summit Shrine, you will find a cemetery in the middle. The easiest way to get to the cemetery is to teleport to the shrine and walk east, more precisely east-north-east. Search until you find a tombstone with a Buddha statue and the sign with the bowing figure.

The gravestone with a peaceful Buddha statue invites you to bow.

Tip : The place is a little hidden and unfortunately the cemetery has no name to orient yourself by. That's why you get a map with a marker showing exactly where to look.

The cemetery is a bit hidden and has no name.

# 7 Frog statue at the Heilfels shrine

On the east coast of Hiyoshi, about halfway between Kaneda Castle and Sensei Ishikawa's Dojo, you will find the Heilfels Shrine. Follow the toriis (these are the traditional red gates) – right at the beginning of the ascent you will find a striking frog statue on the right side of the path. Bow down to her and numerous frogs jump around on the ground.

If you have already discovered the shrine, you can get to it by fast travel. You will find the statue directly in front of the third torii.

The frog statue at the Heilfels shrine is very large and striking – hard to miss.

# 8 Kashine Forest graveyard

Between the Kashine forest and the camp of the survivors you will find a small cemetery. There is a Buddha statue there, which is marked with the well-known sign for the bow. As a reward, red dragonflies flutter around.

The Buddha statue is easy to spot, but the cemetery is a bit difficult to find.

Tip: The easiest way to get to this place is when you have discovered the camp of the survivors in Kashine. Go there by fast travel, turn left and walk over the hill – and you have arrived at the small cemetery.

The easiest way to get to this place is via the Survival Camp.

# 9 Inn by Kashine Hill

At Kashine Hill you will find a large inn in the middle of a bed of red flowers. Enter the courtyard of the inn and look to the right – there is a small pond with a fox statue and the well-known shield. Step across the stones through the pond and swipe down on your touchpad to let green butterflies fly.

The fox is easy to spot thanks to the red flowers.

Tip : The area is very extensive and unfortunately not connected to any place in the vicinity that you could go to by fast travel. The way from Komoda may be easy for you.

The hidden shrine is relatively far from any known locations.

# 10 Small cemetery in Kashine

Quite close to the eastern camp of the survivors in Kashine is a small cemetery. There Mongols live in a yurt (a traditional Mongolian tent). Defeat them and then go up the slope – you can see the cemetery directly. At its edge is another small Buddha statue, before which you can bow. Thereupon red dragonflies buzz around.

The small Buddha statue is just outside the cemetery on the roadside.

Since the mini-camp is not marked as a place on the map, you have to ride or run there. However, there is a burrow nearby – if you've already discovered it, it's worth taking the fast trip.

A burrow is right next to the Mongolian mini-camp.
