“Yougou Cleansing” is the final step of the “Sacred Sakura Cleansing Ritual” world quest line in Genshin Impact. Our Genshin Impact guide will explain how to complete “Yougou Cleansing.”

To unlock this quest, you will need to complete the three prerequisites: “A Strange Story in Konda,” “Sacrificial Offering,” and “Cleansing Defilement.”

Yougou Cleansing world quest walkthrough

  1. Meet up with Kazari in the Konda village well.
  2. Head to Mt. Yougou and talk with Kazari (again).
  3. Jump in the hole (and grab the Electroculus on the way down)!
  4. Fight the tumor while protecting yourself with Electrogranum. The boss will spawn the mini-bosses you’ve been fighting, as well as require you to quickly solve shrine puzzles similar to the ones you’ve been doing in past steps. Make sure to bring a strong team that has shields or healing abilities to help you sustain throughout the fight.

Once you finish fighting the boss, a cutscene will play with Kazari and you’ll be done with the Sacred Sakura Cleansing Ritual.

This step was not necessary if you wanted to unlock the Waypoint Teleporter and Domain near the Perpetual Mechanical Array, but you will get an achievement and some other sweet rewards for doing it.
