Sakura Blooms are one of the many new materials introduced in Genshin Impact's Inazuma update. Because it's an ascension material for the latest 5-star character, Kamisato Ayaka, many players are trying to collect as many of them as they can.

If you're one of the lucky Ayaka owners looking for Sakura Blooms, here's a guide for how to obtain them and the best locations to farm them.

Sakura Bloom Genshin Impact: How to Get

As you venture across Inazuma, occasionally you might come across a small clump of pink petals drifting in the air. If you do, don't hesitate to hit it with an Electro attack using characters like Fischl, Beidou, or Electro Traveler. It'll give you a Sakura Bloom. This works similarly to Dandelion Seeds in Mondstadt.

You'll find Sakura Blooms scattered across Narukami Island in Inazuma. If you're looking for an easy way to farm them, here is an image from the official Genshin Impact interactive map. It displays the locations of over 50 Sakura Blooms, most of which are in the Araumi area or near the Grand Narukami Shrine.

After you've collected every Sakura Bloom currently available, the only thing to do is wait for it to respawn. Most likely, as with all other local specialties, Sakura Blooms will grow back after 48 hours, although this hasn't been tested yet.

Don't forget you can also obtain three Sakura Blooms by completing Ayaka's Test Run!
