Merchants are NPCs who sell items in Sekiro:Shadows Die Twice. There’s a handful of them around the world, and most of them sell pretty important items. Some have quests that can expand their inventories and result in rewards, while others can move around. This guide is going to list all Sekiro merchant locations, as well as the most important things they sell.

Pot Noble Harunaga and his cousin, Pot Noble Koremori, are the only two vendors in the game who accept treasure carp scales as currency. The first one can be found in Hirata Estate, in the river near the Estate Path idol. The second one is in Fountainhead Palace, near the Flower Viewing Platform idol.

Blackhat Badger can be found in Ashina Castle. He’s in a ruined house with a hole in its roof, below the Old Grave idol. The biggest item he sells is the Iron Fortress, which will allow you to unlock the Iron Umbrella prosthetic tool.
Information merchant – Fujioka the Info Broker
Fujioka the Info Broker can be initially found near the Ashina Castle idol. When you spawn, go through the gate and jump over the wall on the right. Turn left and follow the path up the two sets of stairs. When you hit a dead end, go behind the wall on the raised platform on your left. You’ll find him there, cowering. He’ll reward you for clearing out the nearby enemies and go on his merry way. The next time you meet him, he’ll be at the Dilapidated Temple.
His main stock are hints about various item locations and other secrets, but he also sells consumables, as well as a single gourd seed.
