The Genshin Impact Key-Shaped Ward is an item that you need to get in order to complete one of the Sacred Sakura cleansing rituals, so you need to know its location if you want to finish this huge quest. The problem here is that the Key-Shaped Ward is extremely well-hidden. In fact, you need to get a specific gadget in order to reveal its location. Then, you have to figure out where to actually look for it. So, in our Key-Shaped Ward Location Genshin Impact guide, we’ll show you exactly where to find it.
Where to Find Genshin Impact Key-Shaped Ward Location
To find the Key-Shaped Ward location in Genshin Impact, you need to go to the northeast of Kamisato Estate. If you look at the map, you’ll see a horn, on top of which is one of the stones where you can summon your boat. A little bit to the west from there is a green, rectangular plateau. That’s the place we need to go to. Consult our image below to see exactly where this place is.
Once you arrive at the plateau, you’ll see two kitsune statues, one smaller and one larger. There’s a conspicuous empty space between them. So, the next step is to take out your Memento Lens gadget (if you still don’t have this item, take a look at our Sacrificial Offering – Abandoned Shrine, Mysterious Shadow, Memento Lens guide). Use the gadget and focus on the smaller kitsune, and that will make a third, even larger kitsune statue appear. The location of the Genshin Impact Key-Shaped Ward is now revealed to you – it’s at the feet of the third kitsune. While you’re at it, you might as well pick up the Eletroculus floating in the air.
The next step on your journey is to summon the Waverider at the nearby stone and travel to the tiny island to the west. Find the kitsune statue and use the Memento Lens again to reveal an entrance to a cave and follow the path to the Sacred Sakura ritual area. Use the Key-Shaped Ward to start the cleansing process.
