Johnny Yu (he/him) is a guides writer at Polygon. He has written about games such as The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, Diablo 4, and Fire Emblem Engage.

After finishing the “As the Courtyard in Spring Once Appeared” questline in Genshin Impact, you unlock the bonsai tree. On Pudding Isle, you meet a bake-danuki whose friend is missing. Help the two get back together using our “Bake-Danuki Wanderlust” walkthrough.

To start the quest, you must complete the quests “As the Courtyard in Spring Once Appeared,” and to finish it, you’ll need to complete “Like Rhyme and Song, the Summer Reverie.” You’ll also need a character that can trigger pressure plates.
