Hidden Walls or Illusory Walls have always been a staple of FromSoftware games (Dark Souls) and now have returned in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. Hidden Walls are essentially secret pathways that often connect two or more locations and contain treasures. However, in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, these Hidden Walls work a little differently as opposed to Dark Souls games.


Where in Dark Souls, you had to hit an Illusory Wall to open up a passage, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice requires you to interact with a Hidden Wall in order to open it up. Doing so will see Wolf (Sekiro) hug the wall and rotate to the other side. A white silhouette of a man marks the presence of these Shinobi Doors (as Sekiro calls them) in the game.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Hidden Walls

You can expect to find Prayer Beads (used to increase your Vitality and Posture) behind Shinobi Doors. Apart from that, there are a few Illusory Walls that you need to open in order to progress certain NPC questlines such as the one found in Mibu Village.

Moreover, as mentioned earlier, some Shinobi Doors connect one or more areas. A notable example of this is the secret pathway connecting the Dilapidated Temple with Kuro’s Room in Ashina Castle. Following are the locations of all available Hidden Walls in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.


Shinobi Wall #1

Location: Ashina Outskirts – Senpou Temple

How To FindReward/Find
After the big fight with the Chained Ogre, find a broken bridge with a sign on it. Keep going and look for a place to hold onto. You’ll find a cave with a scary Headless guy inside. Don’t fight him, just keep going and you’ll see a door at the end.

Or, you can start from the Shugendo Sculptor’s Idol. Walk until you see a bridge. Near a tree with spinning toys, look down to see a spot to jump to. Jump and hold on, then go left and climb up. Watch out for some lizards! Go inside a broken temple, get past a creepy crawler, and you’ll see a hidden door on your left.
