Genshin Impact Sakura Bloom is a new item you’ll want to gather plenty of once you arrive in Inazuma.
Its chief use is leveling up Ayaka, but you won’t find them just anywhere in Inazuma. There’s also a bit of work involved in obtaining the new level-up material, and you’ll need an Electro character in your party to get them.
Genshin Impact Sakura Bloom location
At the start of the Genshin Impact 2.0 update, Sakura Blooms are only found on Narukami Island. That’s the main island in Inazuma, where Inazuma City and Kamisato Manor are located. miHoYo’s interactive map shows approximately 50 of them are available on Narukami Island.
That’s enough to Ascend Ayaka three times and reach level 60, assuming you have the other necessary items as well.
Genshin Impact Sakura Bloom reset and farm
Like other plant materials, Genshin Impact Sakura Bloom will respawn after two real-world days.
We’re working on finding additional Sakura Bloom locations and will update if it turns out more exist.
For now, your best bet for Sakura Bloom farming is heading west of Kamisato Manor into the hills, where the majority of Sakura Blooms are and then mopping up the outliers around the island’s perimeter.
How to get Sakura Bloom in Genshin Impact
Unlike most other plant materials, getting Genshin Impact’s Sakura Blooms takes a bit of work. They’re similar to the Flaming Flower in that you’ll need to use an Elemental skill to reveal them.
Sakura Blooms appear as floating pink spots in the air. Use an Electro attack to make this visible, and then you can collect them and move on to the next.
What is Sakura Bloom for in Genshin Impact
So far, it seems Sakura Bloom’s only use is leveling Ayaka up. There could be further uses or more characters Sakura Bloomfits with in future updates, but for now, that’s the only thing you need to do with them. If you don’t plan on trying to obtain Ayaka, you’re safe to ignore Sakura Blooms for a while longer.
