The update 2.0 of Genshin Impact marks the introduction of Inazuma, the third nation of the world of Teyvat and the one that worships the Electro Archon, the Raiden Shogun, being inspired by the Japanese culture in aspects as its culture, clothing, housing, and even its environments.
As the first and only region fully located within the ocean, the archipelago of Inazuma will be composed of six main islands, of which only three will be available at launch. Besides, details about every one of its islands have already been released, so let’s take a look at them in this Travelers guide.
Narukami Island POIs in Genshin Impact
Narukami Island is the most important of Inazuma, being both the political and cultural capital of the region. The island is the site of three crucial points of interest around your travel and the main story of the game:
The capital of Inazuma, surrounded by blossom trees and with a big architectural inspiration from Japan. It also is home to the Tenshukaku, the residence of the Electro Archon located at the highest point in the city.
The city is also home to the new Komore Teahouse, a hidden shop with a peaceful, tranquil atmosphere that is only enjoyable through reservations and customers leave their payment in a special box. Its boss is a Shiba Inu with the name Taroumaru, of which there is a story that employees have signed a contract with him to work there forever.
Finally, you can also find here the Kamisato Estate, the residence of the Kamisato Clan and the place where you will first meet Ayaka during the Inazuman Archon Quests.
Grand Narukami Shrine
The largest shrine within Inazuma’s borders, standing tall on the summit of Mt. Yougou, with a beautiful waterfall cascading into green pastures near close. Here you can also find the Sacred Sakura, a tree with similar capabilities to the Frostbearing Tree in Dragonspine.
The area for central processing of all non-Inazuma nationals entering and leaving the nation, being your first point of contact in your journey through the new region.
Kannazuka area in Genshin Impact
This area is composed of a group of mountains and landscapes known as the Tatarasuna, where blossoms continue to bloom impervious to the effect of the war, showing an idyllic, peaceful area of Inazuma covered in swathes of pale pink blossom.
Its biggest mountain surrounds the Mikage Furnace, the largest smelting facility in all the islands of Inazuma, surrounded by jagged, rocky terrain.
Yashiori Island in Genshin Impact
This island will be the last to be introduced as part of update 2.0, featuring the skeleton of a giant snake that rests around the island, being a location where the presence of evil is very palpable.
Mostly all of the islands are covered in bone fragments, with shards of bone protruding from parts of the land and a shoreline covered in shipwrecks. Besides, all these bones and debris were formed after a great battle between the Raiden Shogun and the gigantic reptile, in which the Archon ended up triumphant.
Watatsumi Island in Genshin Impact
This mysterious place is fully engulfed in plants and trees everywhere, looking different colours than other islands, with a peaceful and tranquil environment dense in light blue flora.
This island serves as the location of the Sangonomiya Shrine, the base for the resistance army led by Sangonomiya Kokomi, which opposes Raiden Shogun's Vision Hunt Decree, surrounded by a canopy of mountains and waterfalls.
Tsurumi Island in Genshin Impact
The island is surrounded by a dense fog, and it has been years since anyone has dared to venture to it. Besides, this place is shrouded in mystery and can be visited by anyone, however, you should prepare for looking around withered branches and feather-like vegetation all over the place.
Many secrets await on this island, as you will be close to twisted and dark things around the road.
Seirai Island in Genshin Impact
Last but not least, this one looks like an extremely dangerous area, consumed by an eternal storm. Not much is known about it at the moment.
The update 2.0 of Genshin Impact will be available on 21st July 2021.
