There is a Shrine next to you. Next to it there are door that lead up. There, you can find treasures that are guarded by two dwellers. Defeat them and go down. You can notice a One-Eyed enemy but don't attack him because the crystal, that is next to him, regenerates the enemy's health points. Destroying a crystal while you are on the surface is difficult as well because its energy also regenerates. Instead of that, you should turn left where you can see two paths. Walk down the first one and you will find a Kodama that is hiding behind a tree. When you walk down another path, you will see a building. Enter inside and go down the ladder.

When you are at the bottom, you must keep moving forward. If you open the door on the sides, you will be able to collect treasures. Defeat Nurikabe on a wall on the left, after the first turn, and unlock a secret path. Watch out for new enemies, mages. They are easy to defeat and the only thing that can cause you problems are their magic attacks. However, you can easily block them or dodge.
