As mentioned earlier, Sakiko will quiz you when she finishes telling her story to see if you were listening. If you get all of the answers correct, you'll earn a valuable reward. You can choose to listen to the story, it's rather wholesome and does make you like Sakiko.

However, the conversations can go on for a while, so we've gathered all of the quiz answers below:

  • Bamboo Shoots
  • Outside a Tea Shop
  • Sakiko

Once you have answered correctly, you will earn 300 Virtue and Sakiko will give you a Gold Seal. You can increase the amount of Virtue by buying a booster from a Shrine.

Sakiko will then walk off and we recommend that you visit the Wood Chopping activity nearby to pass the time. Chopping around 35-40 pieces of Wood here usually takes enough time for Sakiko to return to the same spot as before.
