Plains of Kuromizu
Deep in a region of sun-baked flood-plains lies the Kingdom of 黒水 (Kuromizu) sheltered from the sun and nourished by blackwater. Your task is to find this kingdom and discover its riches. Be warned, the plains may be dry as a desert or flooded. You will never know until you venture in. Will you discover the secrets of this kingdom?
Land of Fire Soil

夜の界 (Yoru no Kai)
To Yushi, night is as good as day. Conquer your fears as you hunt nocturnal 妖怪 (Youkai)...oh yes, they exist. We'll find them and learn their true forms. All without artificial light. Your night vision will fully activate and your fears will melt as you enter the real Realm of Night.

Can you follow them? To do so, you'll learn to think beyond the bounds of your curse-dulled mind.

木霊の森 (Kodama no Mori)
As we move further from the things of man, we also journey deeper within ourselves. Visit an ancient forest in search of Kodama. Kodama can only reveal to those who look within and release what holds them back.

Who’s After Who?
Track and try to catch an Okami Yushi on the run, then the tables turn and you become the prey. Yushi skills come alive as you have to use them in context to ‘stay alive’. But don’t worry. A ‘kill’ just gets you a little wet.
Not For the Faint of Heart
Hidden far from the things of man, in the middle of a deep wild swamp, is a hidden treasure box. Challenge your skills like never before as you work together to unravel clues that lead across an array of landscapes to the treasure.

Heart of the Forest
This is the the deepest adventure into the Wilds yet. Draw from all previous experiences to navigate the Wilds to the mysterious Heart of the Forest where you must set the 四方石 (Shihou Ishi), the rumored Cardinal Stones of the Heart. It is said that one who sets all stones in order will receive a blessing to their own deepest heart. Will you receive it?
地獄の平野 (Jigoku no Heiya)
Even Yushi must sometimes simply endure. This adventure will test your resolve as you spend 2 days and 1 night in the most inhospitable environment in Florida. If you can still your mind, the magical beauty of this harsh place will reveal itself and you'll leave with a peace that only comes after pitching your tent on the Plains of Hell!
One of the most difficult challenges. This adventure tests your natural navigation skills. You've been captured and led on a march deep into unknown terrain. Seizing a fortuitous moment, you escape.

Your Shidosha will be with you the whole time, but hints will cost you.
Up the Creek
You are ready to expand your range. Far north of our training grounds, lies the Valley of Nearly Perpetual Rain, pulsing with streams and cascades.
