Though you and Yoimiya managed to secure Sakujirou’s passage out by sea, he wavers, unable to reconcile himself to his wish. It is at this moment that Yoimiya recalls an old couple among Naganohara Fireworks’ clients who might be able to help him out.


  1. Visit the old couple to ask for their help
  2. Help the old couple clean up their courtyard
  3. Give the Pickled Radish to Satoru in the village
  4. Report back to the old couple
  5. Tell Sakujirou the news

Visit the old couple to ask for their help

This quest requires you to go to Konda Village, take the teleport there, or travel north from Inazuma City if you don’t. When you get there, you’ll need to find the elderly couple, the Imatani’s. They can be found in the front garden of their house, north of the waypoint, talk to them for a scene. They are pleased to see Yoimiya, and question who you are, and Yoimiya explains to them that you’re travelers, and her friends. She lets them know that she brought the fireworks they ordered, and the Imatani’s go on, telling you how great Yoimiya’s family has been to them over the years. After telling you how bad it’s got with their old age, they’ll tell you how they started weeding yesterday, but it was too much hard work, then Yoimiya will tell them that we’ll do it for them. If that wasn’t enough, the cheeky old lady asks you to deliver some pickled radish for her too, which you agree too.

Help the old couple clean up their courtyard

For this objective, you’ll have two tasks to do, get rid of the weeds, and deliver the pickled radish. The weeds are all directly in front of them, just attack the bushes with a sword until they disappear, there is seven bushes in total.

(1 of 2) There are seven bushes to attack to clear the weeds, all these can be found outside the Imatani's house.

Give the Pickled Radish to Satoru in the village

Once that is completed, you’ll need to deliver the pickled radishes to Satoru. He can be found a little to the south, across the bridge, on the outskirt of the village. Head over and talk to him for a short scene, and a pleasant conversation, then you’ll need to report back to the Imatani’s.

Report back to the old couple

Teleport back to the village if you’re feeling especially lazy, then head north to the Imatani’s house and approach them for a scene. You’ll hear a heartwarming story of how they first met, and how it all started at the Naganohara’s Fireworks shop. After reminiscing for a bit, they ask Yoimiya if she wanted to ask them something as they know she is busy with the upcoming firework display. She’ll tell them about Sakujirou, and you’ll find out that their son, Keisuke, and Sakujirou were best friends growing up, until they had a terrible argument.

Apparently the argument was about Sakujirou wanting to leave Inazuma due to it being too peaceful, and he wanted to see the rest of the world, whilst Keisuke was at the other end of the spectrum, and loved the peace and tranquility of Inazuma. For some reason, Sakujirou got in a heated argument with Keisuke about it, and Sakujirou stormed off, and never came back. Keisuke is now a high ranking official in the Tenryou Commission, and rarely comes home anymore. When you finish talking to the elderly couple, Yoimiya you, and Paimon talk amongst yourself, and can see how Keisuke ended up in the Tenryou Commission, whilst Sakujirou ended up on the wanted list. It looks like nothing can be done for him on this end, so it’s best you tell him the news.

Tell Sakujirou the news

Teleport back to Inazuma City, and head back to the Naganohara Fireworks shop, but when you get there, Yoimiya’s pops will tell her that something bad has happened. The Tenryou Commission came over, and it appears that they knew about Sakujirou hiding out there, luckily he heard, and escaped, but now they’re chasing him. Yoimiya asks if her pops heard any names, but we all know the answer to that, thankfully, Morihiko was nearby, and heard that one of the names was none other than Keisuke. Yoimiya will tell you time is of the essence, and you need to track them down as soon as possible. When the scene ends, so will the quest.
