Try to leave Ritou

The quest starts off with you needing to leave Ritou, but because you’re an Outlander, it won’t be easy. Head east from the teleport waypoint, and approach Kobayashi. He’ll order you to stop and present your Travel Permits, which you don’t have. You’ll suggest to Paimon that the Kanjou Commission may be able to help you.

Go to the Kanjou Commissioner’s Office to ask about a way to leave Ritou

The Kanjou Commission can be found just around the corner, to the north. Head there, and as you approach the entrance, you’ll be stopped by a rude guard. Thankfully, Hiiragi Shinsuke, the Commissioner of the Kanjou Commission, overhears the commotion and invites you in.

Hiiragi Shinsuke is the Commissioner of the Kanjou Commission.

Talk to Shinsuke of the Kanjou Commission

Go up the stairs and talk to Hiiragi for a scene. After the pleasantries are out the way, he’ll ask if you can help him with some errands, but you can tell straight away that he’s trying to keep you in Ritou for as long as possible with the tasks he’s asking you to do. Whilst you’re talking to him, you’ll notice a lady hiding behind a wooden pillar behind Hiiragi, you make brief eye contact before continuing your conversation. You’ll tell Hiiragi that you’ll consider his proposal, then you’ll leave.

Leave the Kanjou Commissioner’s Office

Leave the way you came in, and as you reach the bottom of the stairs, you’ll get a letter from a guard, saying it’s from Miss Hiiragi. The letter reads…“Dear Traveler,
Would that I could convey this message to you in person.
I apologize for the hasty means by which this letter has come to you, and I hope that it hasn’t left you feeling perplexed or perturbed in any way.

This is my first time extending an invitation to an unknown outlander, after all. It is no mere coincidence that our paths have crossed. Therefore, I hope that you would be so courteous as to meet me tonight, under the glow of resplendent moonlight. Please do not fret about retainers and bodyguards, I will ensure that their attention shall be elsewhere. I look forward to the pleasure of your company.

Meet Hiiragi Chisato

Once the scene ends, head north over the walls, and go to the end of the pergola for a scene. She’ll introduce herself as Hiiragi Chisato, and tell you that she’s impressed with your feats abroad, then she’ll tell you the reason for this secret meeting. She wants you to deliver a secret letter to her lover Kujou Kamaji in Narukami Island. Likewise, she’ll explain the reasons why she can’t deliver it in person, and if you agree, she’ll help you leave Ritou. Finally, she’ll tell you the plan, and meet you at the border.

Go to Ritou’s borders to carry out Chisato’s plan

Leave the Kanjou Commission headquarters, and follow the stairs to the bottom. As you approach Kobayashi, you’ll get a scene. Hiiragi Chisato is using her power to manipulate the guards with a few threats in letting her hire you as bodyguards for the goods being transported to Narukami Island. Although the guards are hesitant, they won’t challenge her orders, and they will reluctantly agree to her wishes.

Escort the goods and leave Ritou

When the scene ends, you’ll immediately be thrown into a challenge. This challenge is the same as every other Transport Balloon challenge you’ll see in the daily commissions. As you get near the first barricade, you’ll face a group of Treasure Hoarders, this group will consist of one Treasure Hoarder Seaman, one Treasure Hoarder Cryo Potioneer, and one Treasure Hoarder Hydro Potioneer. Using characters with good area of effect damage and/or control like Kazuha or Ganyu makes this easier but you shouldn’t have any problems. Make sure to take out the Treasure Hoarder Cryo Potioneer first, because it can freeze you in conjunction with the Treasure Hoarder Hydro Potioneer. Once they’re dealt with, destroy the barricade if you haven’t already, and proceed onwards.

Area of Effect attacks are great here, especially from Kazuha.

Straight after, you’ll face another group, this time you’ll face one Treasure Hoarder Gravedigger, two Treasure Hoarder Marksmans, one Treasure Hoarder Pyro Potioneer, and one Nobushi: Hitsukeban. Nothing too difficult here, although the Nobushi can take a fair bit of damage. Utilize Cryo and Electro attacks here due to the area being covered in water, this will set the status Frozen and/or Electro-Charged as well as Superconduct. If they’re frozen, you can deal big damage with a Pyro user triggering the Melt status. Once they’re dealt with, destroy the barricade and head on.

This area is filled with a wet surface, exploit this with Cryo and Electro users.

The next barricade is a little tougher, you’ll face off against a few Hilichurl, a few Treasure Hoarders, but the toughest one there is the Fiery Might: Kairagi. These are similar but stronger versions of the Nobushi’s and they hit hard. Having a shield user like Zhongli or Noelle helps here for defence.

Area of Effect will help you deal with the lesser enemies quickly, but make sure you have a way to defend yourself against the Kairagi.

For offence, use a combination of elements to weaken them like Electro and Cryo for Superconduct which decreases their physical resistance, or Electro-Charged (Hydro and Electro), which’ll deal continuous damage overtime. Once again, destroy the barricade if it survives your onslaught, and the challenge will be complete after the Balloon goes forward a little. You’ll get a scene, and Hiiragi Chisato will tell you that Kamaji will give you Travel Permits when you arrive. When the scene ends, so will the quest.
