Ghostwire: Tokyo Trophy Guide and Road Map for PlayStation 5
Welcome to our Ghostwire: Tokyo Trophy Guide. Ghostwire: Tokyo is First Person Action-Adventure game set in modern day Tokyo and featuring incredibly well-designed enemies. The population of Tokyo has vanished and Akito has become possessed by a mysterious man named KK and to make matters worse, Akito’s sister—Mari—has been kidnapped by the very people responsible for the current state of Tokyo. Akito must rely on KK’s spirit weaving powers to fight back the invading Visitors and figure out how to save Tokyo and his sister. Ghostwire: Tokyo is available on PS5.
Phase One – Finish the Story & All Side Missions
Phase one of our Ghostwire: Tokyo Trophy Guide is an easy one. Just focus on completing the story and all side missions. You will be introduced to all forms of collectibles during this phase but you can ignore them until a later phase as it will slow down your progress considerably.
Similarly, you can avoid saving the spirits of Tokyo during this phase as completing the story will give you access to an item that makes transferring spirits much easier and faster. It is possible to transfer 100% of spirits before finishing the story but without the item mentioned it would had 10+ hours onto your platinum journey.
Unmissable Story Trophies
Defeat a Visitor by pulling out its core.
While fighting Visitors in Ghostwire: Tokyo you can press right before you deal the final blow to pull out their core. You will have to do this as part of the tutorial and when you do Heartbreaker will unlock.
Complete Chapter 1.
Opening a Path
Cleanse a torii gate.
While playing Ghostwire: Tokyo you will come across large blue torii gates that you have to cleanse by pressing . Cleansing a torii gate will also cleanse the fog in the surrounding area. You can spot torii gates in the distance by the crows that circle them above. You will have to cleanse a torii gate as part of a tutorial in Chapter 2 which will unlock Opening a Path.
Complete Chapter 2.
Fuse back with KK after being hit by a severance attack.
Certain enemies in Ghostwire: Tokyo can rip KK’s spirit out of Akito limiting his attacking options to bow. However, you can “fuse” back with KK by getting close to where he’s suspended in the air and holding . This will happen during Chapter 3 of the story and once you fuse back together, Better Together will unlock.
Complete Chapter 3.
Complete Chapter 4.
Complete Chapter 5.
Complete Chapter 6.
Complete the main story.
First of the Collectibles
Acquire a relic.
Inside the shrine at the first torii gate you cleanse—as part of the story—is the relic “Kagura Suzu” on a table. You aren’t forced to pick up this relic in order to continue which makes it semi-missable, however, most players will likely see it and pick it up. Either way the odds of not picking up a single relic during this phase are slim.
Echoes of the Past
Acquire a voice log.
The earliest Voice Log you can pick up is in a phone booth near Akisawa Shrine at the start of Chapter 2. This will happen as the game teaches you about using katashiro to collect spirits and saving them at phone booths. However, it’s not necessary to pick up the voice log to continue the story which makes it semi-missable.
It’s All Thanks to Yokai
Acquire a magatama.
Throughout Tokyo you can find “Yokai Hunts” which require you to track down and absorb “magatama” from the yokai. These yokai appear in several forms:
- Kappa – a water-dwelling Yokai that can be tricked by placing a cucumber nearby and hiding until it takes the bait
- Nurikabe – a door-spoofing Yokai that can be revealed by pressing when you’re close by
- Oni – A red-skinned Yokai that has to be defended from several waves of Visitors
- Zashiki-warashi – a small girl-like Yokai that hides in closets within houses that likes to eat Shio Senbei
- Karakasa-kozo – an umbrella-like Yokai which hops around and can be snuck up on
- Rokurokubi – a long-necked woman with a lantern in its mouth that tries to lure you closer
- Kodama – a small ball of leaves with legs that needs to be defended from waves of Visitors
- Ittan-momen a flying white sheet that floats around and eventually bumps its head—stunning itself
- Kamataichi – a flying ferret-like Yokai that needs to be chased down to absorb
One of the earliest yokai you can claim a magatama from is a Kappa during a side mission given to you by the Boy Who Can’t Move at Kuo Shrine.
Pray to a Jizo statue.
There are several Jizo statues hidden throughout Tokyo that Akito can pray at to increase the SP of his attacks. Green statues increase Wind, blue increases Water, and red increases Fire. One of the earliest you can find is a green Jizo statue at an intersection South-West of Toyoi Shrine where two roads meet to create a triangular section of pavement.
Side Mission-Related Trophies
Complete a side mission.
There are 42 Side Missions in Ghostwire: Tokyo which appear in waves during certain parts of the story. By the end of Chapter 4—just before the point-of-no-return—all Side Missions will be available and able to be completed. One of the earliest Side Missions that can be completed is Deep Cleaning near the Namita Shrine.
Your Tail’s Showing
Find all of the missing tanuki.
You can meet a Tanuki called Boss Tanuki at Shiroyama shrine during the main story. Speaking to the Boss Tanuki will reveal that 25 of his buddies have gone missing and are hiding around Tokyo. In Japanese folklore the Tanuki can disguise themselves using shapeshifting which means they won’t appear as actual Tanuki in-game but instead various objects such as vending machines, statues, and even large billboards. The key tell that an item is a Tanuki is if the object in question has a wagging Tanuki tail attached to it when you highlight it with . They’re mostly hiding in back alleys and on rooftops. You can usually tell from a distance because despite being disguised as a vending machine it will be positioned in an unnatural way such as facing a wall or off the beaten path.
You will need to find all 25 Missing Tanuki in order to complete all 42 Side Missions.
Complete all side missions.
Most Side Missions will appear on the map naturally as you progress the story with the exception of 3—After the End II, After the End III, and The Boss Tanuki. After the End II and III only seem to trigger when you get within close proximity of a phone booth located at Shibuya Scramble Crossing (II) and at Toyoi Shrine (III). The Boss Tanuki is a Side Mission that only becomes available after finding all 25 Mising Tanuki.
Phase Two – Find All Collectibles & Transfer 100% of Spirits
After completing the story and all 42 Side Missions in Phase One of our Ghostwire: Tokyo Trophy Guide you will need to focus on clearing the map off all collectibles and collecting 100% of spirits. Both of these will require a significant chunk of time as there are a large number of each. Luckily the collectibles are easy to pin on the map and find with pressing ; this is made even easier by utilising our Complete Collectible Map.
Finding 100% of Spirits—A.K.A 240,300 spirits—sounds a lot harder than it really is. This is because after completing the story you will gain access to the Transmission Prayer Beads which instantly transfers any spirits you save effectively removing the need to visit phone booths ever again. You can pair the Transmission Beads with the Spirit Perception Beads II which tracks any spirits within 200m when you press and will shoot out a small guiding orb that heads in the direction of the nearest spirit to Akito. Finally, it’s essential to have the Amenokagami III, Michikiri II, Fukurokuju III, and Amenotori X skills as they individually decrease how long it takes to absorb spirits, increase glide time, allow up to 3 Prayer Beads to be equipped at once, and let you summon a Tengu to grapple to a building’s ledge.
Either way, this phase will take the longest time so it’s recommended to through on your favourite show to binge or play some top tier music to vibe to while you go from point to point clearing the map.
All of the Spirits
Transfer 25% of the spirits in the city.
See Salvation of All.
Transfer 50% of the spirits in the city.
See Salvation of All.
Salvation of All
Transfer 100% of the spirits in the city.
Using the methods detailed at the start of this phase will make getting 25% of all spirits—which is 60,075—go by pretty quickly. Similarly, 50% will seem to come up effortlessly also but the real grind starts from there as getting to 100% can get pretty tiresome and around 90% you might start struggling to find those last few spirits holding out as they’re spaced too far apart for your beads to guide you properly. If this happens, open the map with and check each shrine to see which ones aren’t at 100% and head there. Your beads should be able to pick up the scent and guide you from there.
To reach 100% you will also have to collect 3,700 spirits from Shibuya Underground, 10,000 from Containment Cubes, and 15,000 from Hyakki Yako events. The latter is where the problem lies as they have a low spawn rate and can make searching for them a chore. The Hyakki Yako events appear as a large parade of Visitors surrounded in fog walking up and down the main roads through Tokyo. The best solution I found to make them appear was to fast travel to Hirajuku Building Rooftop Torii Gate and run south along the main road and head right at the intersection just after Mikubo Shrine. From there run to Shibuya Scramble Crossing and check each road before heading back towards Mikubo Shrine and continue heading south. Once you get to the end of the road you can either fast travel back to Hirajuki Building Rootop Torii Gate or run back. After a while a Hyakki Yako should spawn.
You Wouldn’t Steal a Spirit
Successfully protect at least 3 Containment Cubes in a single battle.
Containment Cube events randomly spawn—and seem to have a higher spawn rate than Hyakki Yako events—while you explore Tokyo. There will be 2 or 3 cubes suspending in the air and Visitors will appear to try and siphon the souls out of the cubes. If a cube reaches 0% you won’t be getting any souls from that cube. Containment Cube events with 3 cubes are quite common so if you fail to keep all 3 cubes above 0% on your first try, you can have another go.
This trophy could potentially be missable if you have almost all spirits from Containment Cubes and the last Containment Cube event only spawn two cubes. Though this is untested and it may be the case that the last Containment Cube event always spawns 3 cubes. Either way it’s best to get this trophy done and out of the way as soon as you can.
On the Same Wavelength
Raise your synergy level to max.
Raising your “synergy level to max” is just Ghostwire: Tokyo’s way of saying reach the maximum player level—which is 50. You will need to gain quite a bit of XP to reach the level cap for Akito and the biggest source of XP you can get in the game is from saving spirits and as such will mean you will reach the max level long before you reach 100% spirits saved.
Finding all the collectibles on your own can seem really daunting. Luckily we have your back with this super large map featuring every collectible on the map as well as the location of the Nekomata Shops where you can buy everything else.
Cleanse all torii gates.
There are 29 Torii gates in Ghostwire: Tokyo and they all become available before you reach the end of Chapter 4. There is a 30th Torii gate that is unmarked on the map that counts towards Liberator. Though it must be cleansed during the “Giants” mission in Chapter 4 and if you have the other 29 cleansed by this point then Liberator will unlock.
Acquire all relics.
There are 123 relics to be found in Ghostwire: Tokyo. This sounds more daunting than it really is as you can visit each of the Nekomata shops and track their relic requests which puts yellow circles on the map in the areas where the relic can be found. Some Relics are inside buildings which you usually enter during main and side missions and are re-enterable at any time. If you can’t find a collectible on the street or on a rooftop it’s more than likely that it’s inside a building and you should look for a door nearby. There are also 5 Relics hiding in Shibuya Underground.
Shibuya Is My Back Yard
Find all landmarks.
There are 31 Landmarks in Ghostwire: Tokyo and all but one can be found naturally while hunting for all of the spirits. The one that you can easily miss is at the very Southern part of the map at the edge of the fog.
The Whole Truth
Acquire all voice logs.
There are 17 Voice Logs in Ghostwire: Tokyo and appear as either handheld audio recorders—often found inside phone booths—or laptops which are found at some shrines. One of the Voice Logs is hidden in Shibuya Underground and one other can only be obtained via a laptop at the shrine before entering Tokyo Tower in Chapter 5.
With Their Powers Combined
Acquire all magatama.
Magatama are awarded for completing Yokai Hunts—the specific hunt types are outline in the It’s All Thanks to Yokai trophy—throughout Tokyo. There are 37 Yokai Hunts but a total of 40 Magatama. The last 3 Magatama have to be bought from Nekomata shops for 130,000 Meika each.
Pray to all Jizo statues.
Finding all 52 Jizo statues in Ghostwire: Tokyo is made easier by the simple mechanic of throwing money at offering boxes at shrines and asking to find a Jizo statue. Doing so will place one on your map for you to track down. If you do this often you can find most Jizo statues without much effort. However, you won’t be able to find all of them this way so you will have to do some actual searching at some point.
Acquire all types of food and drink.
You can pick up food in Ghostwire: Tokyo which you can the use to heal Akito during battle. There are 50 tiems available and very food and drink item apart from 8 can be found naturally in the open world—Coffee Milk seems to only be found inside bath houses. The remaining 8 items can be bought from Nekomata Shop Stalls. These items are:
- Okonomiyaki (pork)
- Strawberry Kakigori
- Tapioca Milk Tea
Check the maps below to find the Shop Stalls that sell each of the 8 food and drink items.
Acquire all talismans.
There are 4 Talisman types in Ghostwire: Tokyo and all of them can be bought by the end of Chapter 4. Once you have all four in your inventory Talismania will unlock.
Visiting Hours Are Over
Defeat every type of Visitor.
There are 23 Visitor types to defeat and every single one will be encountered naturally during the main story. The only semi-missable Visitors are the Forlorn and the red variant Forsaken as these Visitors will vanish when they spot you. You have to actually defeat every Visitor type which means you will have to sneak up on a Forlorn and Forsaken and Quick Purge it for it to count as being defeated.
Acquire all music tracks.
Out of the total 31 Music Tracks in Ghostwire: Tokyo, 20 of them will need to be bought at the Nekomata Relic Hunting shops. The remaining 11 will be awarded for finishing main and side missions. Some are also awarded for completing all of the Relic Hunts for specific Nekomatas.
Acquire all items for the Outfit menu (excluding bonus content).
You can dress Akito up with 50 different outfit items in Ghostwire: Tokyo. Acquiring outfit items is as easy as completing main and side missions and buying them from the Nekomata Relic Hunting Shops. Some are also awarded for completing all of the Relic Hunts for specific Nekomatas.
Acquire the maximum number of katashiro.
Katashiro are small papers that loosely resemble human beings and are used to absorb the spirits floating around Tokyo. You will Naturally acquire 12 at the start of the game but you can hold a maximum of 50. You can buy Katashiro at all Grocery Shops.
Mind and Body
Unlock all Spirit Skills.
Unlocking all Spirit Skills isn’t as simple as reaching the maximum player level as several skill points are locked behind KK’s Investigation Notes. You receive about 20 skill points per KK’s Investigation Note. You also will need to find all Magatama as they are used to unlock higher level skills in their respective trees. In order to unlock all Spirit skills you will need to find all KK’s Investigation Notes and every Yokai Hunt. The last KK’s Investigation Note can be obtained at the shrine before entering Tokyo Tower in Chapter 5.
Phase Three – Clean Up & Repeating Chapter 5 and 6
Now you’ve reached the final stretch of our Ghostwire: Tokyo Trophy Guide. Since you should have 100% of the spirits and every collectible at this point, the only thing to do is repeat Chapters 5 and 6 and clean up any miscellaneous trophies you might have.
Most of the trophies in this phase will likely be combat trophies such as purging the cores of 5 Visitors at once, using Quick Purge to defeat a total of 200 Visitors, or Quick Purging 3 Visitors from inside a bush created by the Thicket Talisman et cetera.
Finish the Story with 100% Spirits
Hero of Shibuya
Complete the main story after transferring 100% of the spirits in the city.
After reaching 100% spirits transferred you can head back to the motorcycle from Chapter 4 to repeat chapters 5 and 6. Nothing changes despite having 100% of the spirits saved, but the there’s a trophy for it so you have to do it. For a quicker time you can drop the difficulty as far as it goes and blaze through it.
Acquire all sets of prayer beads.
The very last Prayer Beads Ghostwire: Tokyo awards you are the Tireless Beads and Shadow Beads for completing the game with 100% spirits transferred. These two beads allow you to be completely ignored by Visitors and to continuously use Spirit Weaving without running out of SP. If you have every set of beads up to this point, Power Overwhelming should unlock when you press “continue” after beating the game with 100% spirits saved.
Pet an animal.
You will often find dogs wandering the empty streets of Tokyo—presumably looking for their lost owners. To cheer them up you can approach them and press to give all the good boys and girls a well-deserved head pat.
Use Photo Mode for the first time.
You can use Photo Mode by pressing and selecting “Photo Mode” from the menu. Amateur Photographer should unlock as soon as you enter Photo Mode.
Don’t Worry About It
Pull a “Daikyo” omikuji.
At certain shrines there is a small octagonal box called “omikuji” at the visitor desks that can give you random buffs. One such buff is called “Daikyo” and reduced Akito’s health to 1. The chances of pulling this buff out of the omikuji is very small and you can’t use an omikuji again until your current buff runs out which can make this trophy time-consuming if you try to do it naturally. The best way to tackle this trophy is to create a save file while standing in front of the omikuji and pull a buff out. If it’s not Daikyo then reload your save and try again.
Walking on Air
Grapple and glide to remain in the air for at least 10 seconds.
A fully upgrade glide skill only gives you 5 seconds of air time which means you will have to use Tengus to fill up the other 5 seconds required for this trophy. It seems like this trophy is a bit forgiving as during my attempt I very briefly landed on the ledge of a building and quickly fell off while holding the glide button and the trophy still popped. The best strategy would be to find a section of the map with a cluster of Tengus and try to grapple and glide between them without touching the ground for longer than a second.
Spend a total of 1,000,000 meika.
Spending 1 million Meika in Ghostwire: Tokyo should be unmissable while going for the platinum as you will have to spend over 1 million in order to acquire all collectibles from the Nekomata Shops. However, if for some reason you still don’t have Big Spender go to a Grocery Store and buy as much food as you can and eat it so you can buy more. Do this until the trophy unlocks.
Put a total of 10,000 meika into offering boxes.
There are several offering boxes all over Tokyo at the shrines you visit. When you pray at an offering box you can choose to spend either 100 Meika or 500 Meika. Choosing 500 will speed up this trophy considerably. Once you make a donation at an offering box you can fast travel to another shrine and use the offering box there to make another donation.
Spend at least 30 seconds looking at the moon.
To unlock Lonely Tsukimi find a good spot with a clear line of sight on the moon and put your controller down for 30 seconds.
Defeat 50 Visitors by pulling out their cores.
Defeating 50 visitors by pulling out their cores should be unmissable for most players but if you’ve skipped a lot of content then you might have missed opportunities to pull out Visitor cores. After finishing the story you will get put back at the end of Chapter 4 and there should be plenty of Visitors walking around the city so you can still unlock Soul Breaker but it will require you hunting Visitors down.
One Fell Swoop
Defeat at least 5 Visitors simultaneously by pulling out their cores.
During the story Akito will learn the “Wire In” ability by pressing + . This weakens and exposed the cores of Visitors close to Akito. To unlock One Fell Swoop, wait until 5 or more Visitors are close to Akito and Wire In to expose their cores. If less than 5 cores are exposed then use to shoot a Wind spirit weave at the unexposed cores to expose them and then hold once 5 or more are exposed. You could also use the Exposure Talisman to instantly expose 5 Visitors as long as they are grouped up close enough.
Couldn’t Take the Heat
Defeat at least 3 Visitors simultaneously by detonating a red ether crystal.
While exploring Tokyo you will come across floating red objects. These objects are “red ether crystals” and shooting them will cause them to explode. These are quite common in most battle arenas and unlocking Couldn’t Take the Heat is as simple as luring 3 or more enemies over to one and hitting it.
Defeat a total of 200 Visitors using Quick Purge.
You can quick purge a Visitor with when you knock them down or sneak up on them. The best way to get 200 quick purges on Visitors is to make a save file near a large group and either stealth your way through them, knock them down during combat, or equip the Shadow prayer beads. These beads are unlocked for completing the story with 100% spirits transferred and make you completely invisible to Visitors which means you can brazenly walk up to them and quick purge them without any threat when you pair them with the Incognito beads.
Go For the Eyes
Defeat a total of 20 Visitors with headshots.
This trophy is easy with the bow and should be attempted while going for the Take a Bow trophy.
Take a Bow
Defeat a total of 50 Visitors using the bow.
Akito receives the bow quite early in the story and can be used whenever you run out of SP for your spirit weaving or whenever KK is ripped out of Akito. Make sure you unlock some spirit skills for upgrading Akito’s arrow capacity and whenever you encounter a group of enemies while exploring, use the bow to kill them. You can do more damage by collecting and wearing the Archery beads.
Defeat a Visitor with a headshot from a distance of at least 40m.
This trophy can be a bit tricky as it seems as though Visitors will fade despawn when Akito is over 40m away. Though it can be easily achieved if you find a rooftop with enemies and place a waypoint on them so you can find a spot 40m away from them. Once you find a spot you can make a save file and attempt to kill one with a headshot. If you fail you can reload your save and try again.
Defeat a total of 10 Visitors with Quick Purge while they are held by a Stun Talisman.
Pressing will equip and cycle through your Talismans—alternatively you can hold to bring up a weapon wheel and select your talisman—until you land on the Stun Talisman. You can then throw it at the ground near a Visitor and they will, well become stunned. You can then get close to them and press to quick purge them. Do this 10 times to unlock Freeze, Scumbag.
Defeat a total of 3 Visitors with Quick Purge while hiding in bushes created by a Thicket Talisman.
Similar to the Freeze, Scumbag trophy you can use the Thicket Talisman to create a bush that you can hide in and quick purge enemies when they get close. This trophy doesn’t seem to track progress properly so you could end up having to do it more than 3 times before the trophy pops. You can use the Trophy Tracker feature on PS5 to track the trophy and its progress.
Left Yourself Open
Defeat a total of 10 Visitors by ripping out their cores after exposing them with an Exposure Talisman.
When you throw an Exposure Talisman on the ground any Visitors within its range will have their cores instantly exposed allowing you to rip them out by holding . Once you’ve done this to 10 Visitors Left Yourself Open will unlock.
Master of Blocking
Perform a total of 30 Perfect Blocks.
You can block in Ghostwire: Tokyo by holding and if you block right before an attack connects with Akito it will count as a “Perfect Block”. This also works for projectiles that enemies shoot at you and are easier to time your perfect blocks. You can find a group of Wanderer Visitors and kill all but one and repeatedly block the projectiles it shoots to farm this trophy easier.
Wire In a total of 10 times.
During the story Akito will learn how to “Wire In”. This works by building up a bar in the bottom right corner of the screen by purging the cores of Visitors. Once the bar is filled you can press + simultaneously to perform a Wire In. This will stun Visitors and expose their cores if they are close to you as well as increasing your damage output considerably. It’s an excellent tool for getting out of hairy situations or quickly exposing large groups of Visitors. After the 10th Wire In you perform In Sync will unlock.
Acquire all trophies.
Once you have acquired every other trophy in this Ghostwire: Tokyo Trophy Guide, the “Ghostwire Tokyoite” platinum trophy will unlock. Congratulations, Hero of Shibuya!
