Requirements To Unlock The Empty Boat of a Thousand Gates Domain
This underwater Domain can only be accessed once you’ve completed the Sacred Sakura Cleansing Ritual questline.
Please start “A Strange Story in Konda” World Quest first if you haven’t already done so!
After completing this World Quest, move on to the next one, titled “Sacrificial Offering.”
When you make a Sacrificial Offering, the Memento Lens is yours to keep.
To begin the Sacred Sakura Cleansing Ritual, you can now use this key to gain access to the Narukami underwater area, which contains a shrine that needs to be cleaned.
How to unlock the Empty Boat of a Thousand Gates Domain underwater area?
Go north of Narukami Island to the Araumi region and activate the four Electro mechanisms that surround the stone tower and a large tree with your Memento Lens.
Each of the four Electro mechanisms has a different number of components.
Activating three of them is as simple as hitting them with an Electro attack; however, one of them is encircled by Electro squares.
To activate the mechanism, you must turn the Araumi electro puzzle pieces in the correct order.
Next, enter the stone tower ruin and apply the Memento Lens to the Earth Kitsune statues there.
After that, all you have to do is flip the three switches to let you into the room below.
Sacred Sakura Cleansing Ritual is in front of you, and the path to the underwater area (including Empty Boat of a Thousand Gates Domain) is to your left once you enter the cave.
