Ishikawa Tales

The first Ishikawa tale is part of Jin’s Journey, the main quest line. The next three Ishikawa’s tales can be done during the first act. Two more missions are in Toyotoama, during act 2, with the last two in Kamiagata and Toyotama during act 3. Just like other side quests, these also give a minor legend increase – except for the first one, which is part of the main quest. Completing all Ishikawa tales, you’ll get the Shattered mask of Tomoe and The Unbending Archer trophy.

Kenji is one of the most memorable characters in Ghost of Tsushima. He offers three quests.

Yuna Tales in Ghost of Tsushima

All of Yuna’s tales take place during the second act in Toyotama. You can complete them all at the start of the act – it takes around an hour. They are also clustered in one place, which can shorten the time to completion, considering you might not have fast travel points unlocked nearby. Completing all of Yuna’s tales unlocks a trophy called The Headstrong Thief. In the final tale, you’ll fight a boss called Altan and his guards.

Yuriko Tales Locations, Rewards & Requirements

Yuriko is probably the last ally you’ll meet. She has two quests, with great rewards. It’s hard to miss these missions, as the first one can be started when you complete the Ghost From the Past main quest. Yuriko will wait for you at the end of that main tale. These two tales don’t unlock a trophy upon completion, but reward you with an emotional story about Jin’s childhood. This is a great opportunity to learn more about his father and mother, and about the great woman called Yuriko.
