Ashina Depts is one of the main locations in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. Finding its entrance can be problematic. On this page, we present a complete path from Ashina Castle to Ashina Depths.
The earliest moment when you can visit Ashina Depths is after reaching Ashina Castle. However, it is highly recommended to spend some time on unlocking better abilities and increasing stats. Ashina Depths are roamed by strong enemies and bosses - a weaker character may have problems with defeating them.
Start on the left side of the castle, at Ashina Reservoir Sculptor's Idol. Turn left, approach the ledge and use the grappling hook on the tree.
Approach the wall and climb it. An enemy that can alarm others is below you - either ignore or kill him. Go left and stand near the chasm. Use the grappling hook on the hook point (see the picture) or move on the narrow edges.
Go straight and enter the dungeon. Lone Shadow Longswordsman, one of the mini-bosses, is standing at the bottom. If this is your first visit here, check out the Bosses chapter. Our description will tell you how to surprise attack and kill this mini-boss fast. If he is already dead, proceed forward.
Swim through the partially flooded cave and then grab the hook point located above. You enter the Abandoned Dungeon.
Head straight. You can ignore the lizards standing in your way. Don't jump down to the arena on the left - this is where you will face Shichimen Warrior, one of the mini-bosses.
Reach the end of this ledge and jump to the next one. Go to Bottomless Hole Sculptor's Idol.
Go through the passage next to the Sculptor's Idol. You will pass two NPCs by - you don't have to speak to them. Reach the Bottomless Hole - a chasm that goes forever.
Jump into the chasm. You will be falling down for a few seconds. Be ready to press the grappling hook button when you notice the hook icon. You will reach the ledge presented in the picture.
Use the grappling hook a few times and then jump down to the cave below you. Here, you will notice a single zombie - you can ignore this enemy. Turn right and find the small hole in the ground (see the picture). Jump down.
Now, complete a few steps to unlock the first Sculptor's Idol in Ashina Depts. You get the confirmation about reaching this location right after you enter the first large cave with a few enemies (Poison Pool).
