Ghost Of Tsushima Haiku Location Guide

Track down all of the Haiku Locations in Ghost of Tsushima if you want to find all of Jin Sakai's Vanity Gear and unlock the Mind, Body, and Spirit Trophy.


All over Ghost of Tsushima are special locations where you can take in the beauty of the island while earning new items and abilities. Inari and Shinto Shrines give you new perk charms to equip, hot springs increase your overall health, and haiku locations let you compose short poems while unlocking Vanity Gear to customize your samurai warrior look.

There are 19 Haiku locations in total in Ghost of Tsushima, but they're not always easy or obvious to find. Some are even only available as part of various tales you'll play through around the island. Here's where to find every Haiku location, which is part of unlocking the Mind, Body, and Spirit Trophy.

Now Playing: 9 Things I Wish I Knew Before Starting Ghost Of Tsushima

We've got a whole lot more coverage to help you fight off the Mongols. Check out our Ghost of Tsushima guide roundup for our full walkthrough, collectibles guides, hot springs locations, side missions rundown, combat tips, and more.


Hiyoshi 1

The first Haiku in the game is actually easy to miss if you don't thoroughly explore around Hiyoshi Springs. You'll find a man sitting on a rock in the hills north of the town. He'll call out to you and give you a quick Haiku tutorial, but there won't be a regular Haiku icon until you speak with him. Your reward for completing it is the Headband of Serenity.
