Genshin Impact Shakkei Pavilion location and how to unlock

Genshin Impact Shakkei Pavilion is a new one-time Domain in Inazuma, but finding it isn’t so easy.

You’ll have to finish a world quest first before things take an explosive turn. It takes a bit of time, though the rewards are worth the trouble. Among other things, you’ll get access to another new weapon you can create at the forge.

Genshin Impact Shakkei Pavilion | Tatara Tales quest

Unlocking Shakkei Pavilion takes a bit of work, and the first step is completing the Tatara Tales quest. Head to the Kujou Encampment area just west of the Violent Court Domain, and you’ll find two people arguing about evacuations.

Finish listening in to start the Tatara Tales quest, which tasks you with destroying three massive crystal formations using a new field item.

Genshin Impact Shakkei Pavilion | Kamujima Cannon

Three Kamujima Cannon installations are set up around Tatarasuna’s eastern coast in the areas circled below.

Grab a nearby Electrogranum to activate the cannons. They’re a bit tricky to use and only shoot arced shots. You have unlimited shots once the cannon activates, though, so feel free to experiment with positioning and miss as many times as needed.

Finish the quest, then go back to the southern cannon installation. This time, you’re aiming for the rocky area circled below.

You’ll know when you hit the right spot since it sparkles, and a small cave-like opening appears.

Summon your Waverider and sail to the newly opened cliffside. Shakkei Pavilion is inside.

It’s a one-time Domain, but it’s also well worth the trouble of getting here. Among other things, it rewards you with another Mask of Memories item that teaches you a recipe to use at the forge.

Once that’s finished, you could always take a break from questing and stock up on Ascension materials for Kamisato Ayaka and Yoimiya, including Naku Weed and Sakura Bloom.
