Though they’re not essential to finishing the game or unlocking all the cool upgrades you can get in Ghost of Tsushima, some of the more interesting places to find in the game are its Haiku locations. There are 19 in total, and stopping by each one earns you a cosmetic headband to add to your collection of outfits for Jin Sakai. Haikus give you a chance to enjoy the scenery of Ghost of Tsushima in a quiet moment while you quickly compile a haiku poem about a specific concept.
Of all the Haiku locations in the game, the easiest to miss is the one developer Sucker Punch expects you to find first. That’s the Haiku spot near Hiyoshi Springs. If you find it, this first Haiku is meant to function as a tutorial for the rest of them, introducing you to the Haiku concept and showing you what such locations are like. But if you don’t explore around Hiyoshi, it might be the last Haiku you find. Here’s where to locate the Haiku spot and what you need to do to activate it.
