The titular island in Ghost of Tsushima is begging to be explored. Every corner of Izuhara’s prefectures has collectibles hidden among the various forests, beaches, cliffs, and fields.

One of the best ways to fully explore everything there is to find in Tsushima is by liberating each of the island’s three sections. Doing so will not only clear the fog of war throughout that area, but you will get two Ghost of Tsushima Trophies. Liberating all of Izuhara will also put you a third of your way to the Master Liberator Trophy, which you receive for liberating all of Tsushima.

Our Ghost of Tsushima maps below will show you every location — castle, farmstead, village, and more — you need to liberate from Mongol control to clear out Izuhara.
