Obtained items

Celestial Brush techniques

  • Rejuvenation: At the top of a hill, complete the constellation. This cannot be skipped.


  • Astral Pouch: After restoring the River of the Heavens. In plain sight. This chest cannot be skipped.


Stray Beads

  • #1: On a plot of land north of the river before the bridge, hiding behind a rock and a tree. In plain sight.



  • The River of the Heavens may be based on Takamagahara, the dwelling place of the Kami. It could also be based on Ama-no uki-hashi (the Floating Bridge of Heaven), a bridge that connects Takamagahara to the Earth.
    • The name of the river in the original Japanese version of Ōkami, "天の川" (Amanogawa, river of heaven), is also the name of the Milky Way galaxy. This name, alongside "銀河" ([pinyin required], silver river) in Chinese, are the two names for the galaxy used throughout East Asia (China, Japan, Vietnam and Korea).
  • Sunrise and Crescent are usable here, as the sky is a constant clear night sky with visible constellations and a full moon.
    • Due to the night sky, Yomigami's constellation is always visible in the sky.
