Sekiro Kotaro: What You Need to Know

Kotaro is a monk players can encounter at Senpou Temple, Mt. Kongo. When players talk to him, he'll tell them about the splitting headache that's pretty much just ruining his day. He needs a pure white flower to assuage the headache.


Players can complete his quest line in three different ways, each bearing its own rewards.


The first option is to find a White Pinwheel and offer it to him. After he accepts the flower, use the Divine Abduction prosthetic to send him to the Illusion Hall, where he'll thank you and give you a Taro Persimmon.

Option two necessitates a Red and White Pinwheel. Players can insist he take it, then send him to work for Anayama the Peddler. This will upgrade Anayama's shop with new items.


The third and final option also requires the Red and White Pinwheel. After giving it to Kotaro, players can ask him to go to the Abandoned Dungeon to finish Doujun's quest. This awards three Lump of Wax.
