Tengu of Ashina is an NPC in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. He’s a large fellow, and you can find him after you defeat the first boss. He’ll be waiting inside the Ashina Castle Gate Fortress, the big building near the Sculptor’s Idol. After you talk to him, he’ll ask you to help him hunt down some rats. This guide will tell you everything you need to know about Sekiro rat hunting quest, including rat locations.
If you choose to accept the quest, the Tengu will give you a description of the rats. It’s a key item, so you can always reference it later if need be. According to it, the rats are short in stature and they wear bamboo hats. They’re assassins from the Senpou Temple, and they’ve been seen skulking around Ashina Castle Gate. You might have noticed one (that isn’t part of the quest) in the opening sequence: the tiny, wrinkled creature under the bridge.
The first one you’ll find will be on the cliff next to the Ashina Castle Gate Fortress idol. He’s behind the big rock, next to the tree, so you might not spot him if you don’t go there specifically. He’s a nasty little piece of work. He’ll try to poison you, so be ready to dodge at a moment’s notice.
