Bundled Jizo Statue
Bundled Jizo Statue is a Quick Item in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. It is used to restore a node of Sekiro's Resurrective Power and also unlocks the resurrect ability if it happens to be locked.
Bundled Jizo Statue Usage
- Restores a node of Resurrective Power and also unlocks the resurrect ability if it happens to be locked.
- Does NOT restore resurrection use if all resurrection nodes are filled (i.e. if you die and your remaining one or two resurrection nodes were already full, then your resurrection will be limited as usual and you cannot remove this restriction with a Jizo Statue).
How to Find Bundled Jizo Statue
- Ashina Outskirts- From the Outskirts Wall - Gate Path Buddha statue, jump up to the top of the building that houses the first shuriken prosthetic upgrade. You should be able to see General Naomori Kawarada from there, an oversized rooster on a cliff to your right, and an item on the cliff to your left. The item will be some pellets. From the spot where you collect them, look down and right a little. There will be some lamps at the bottom of a far fall and you'll take fall damage, but manage to land on the little cliff and you can head through the cave to get the Jizo Statue.
- Revisiting the Ashina Reservoir- At the top of the tower where you will meet the remnant for Kuro. grapple onto the roof and go around the tower rooftop to find the item.
- Hirata Estate- From Anayama the Peddler, grapple onto the top of a locked gate and go through a short bamboo patch that leads to 1x Bundled Jizo Statue.
- Sunken Valley Passage - After performing a finishing deathblow on the Great Serpent, you will land on the other side of the hanging bridge that the serpent broke earlier where 1x can be looted from the path ahead.
- Fountainhead Palace - 1 can be found behind the Shichimen Warrior.
- Senpou Temple, Mt. Kongo - Main Hall Idol, directly to the left from the altar and the Head Monk, up behind some statues.
- Every Prayer Bead and Prosthetic Tool pick-up is replaced with a Bundled Jizo Statue on NG+, provided they were picked up on the previous playthrough.
One dropped from the white monkey atop the roof of the Great Serpent Shrine once the second part of the Castle Seige has begun. (After Divine Dragon fight) Not certain yet if that is a one time drop or if they can be farmed (tested: cannot be farmed, single drop only).
Bundled Jizo Statue Notes, Tips, & Trivia
- Using a Bundled Jizo Statue (alternatively, any type of a Mibu baloon) next to the Old Hag triggers a dialogue prompt where she compliments you on your proper prayer and then rewards you with an Ungo's Sugar (tested at Bodhisattva Valley). This works up to three times, rewarding you different sugars. After the third time, the Old Hag will complain about Senpou monks driving her away and wish someone like you would visit the Divine Child.
- Jizo, known as the Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha in Mahayana Buddhism outside of Japan, vowed to help humankind until the next Buddha appeared on earth. "He acts as a guardian of travelers, those in trouble and women and children. He is regarded as continually working for the alleviation of those reborn in hells, and to be particularly concerned about the destiny of dead children...In Japan, statues of him are often found at the side of country roads and mountain paths, and they are placed in graveyards as prayer-offerings for the good rebirth of dead children and miscarried or aborted fetuses (Harvey, 2000: 333-41)."
