  • Leave the cable car and make your way to the control room. On the way we will get stopped by several ghosts and learn about the Slow Motion Shots ability that Miu has. Meaning we can now slow down ghosts, which is great. However, it does cost Spirit Power so watch out. You will unlock the Optimal Opportunist trophy achievement for pulling this off
  • Inside the control room you will find the same items that were previously placed in here, such as the Purifying Embers, Herbal Medicine, and Type-14 Film. Leave the room and make your way to the shrine
  • Here head to the shrine doors for a trace photo of Yuri (Yuri Kozukata Heading into the Valley). Follow Yuri and Kyozo may come and say hello, he, for some reason, has turned into being my favourite ghost. Please be gentle with him 😛
  • Anyway head to the Forbidden Valley. Here there will be a Sacred Water on the statue to the right. If you haven’t already worked it out by now, a lot of items that you found before will spawn in the exact same place each mission
  • We are now back in the stone and rock maze, keep to the right and there will be a ghost sighting (Girl Hiding in Shadows)
  • Continue right and head around the rocks in order to get a photo opportunity of Miku Hinasaki (the main protagonist from the original Fatal Frame)
  • Follow Miku and it will lead to a path that is currently being blocked, get the Note from Miku 1 from the floor
  • Head to Cherry Blossom Plateau in order to trigger a potential ghost fight, we have encountered her before. However, if you haven’t already, unlock her glance scene. Her weakness is taking a photo of the rope
  • (UPDATE: If you enter the Cherry Blossom Plateau from the Passage behind Stupa and aim your camera towards the tree, you should be able to capture a ghost sighting (Sitting Girl) Thanks to Akeashar for pointing this out
  • Then head to Western Passage, just before the Exit to Summit and there will be a ghost sighting amongst the trees to the left. (Boy Standing at a Grave)
  • Continue along the path towards Twilit Peak and we will get another photo chance of Yuri (Yuri Kozukata Heading to Twilit Peak)
  • Head to the Twilit Peak. This time we have to fight the ghost kids. After the fight head to the Before Great Pillar Jizo path
  • Here continue up the hill to the left in order to trigger a ghost fight, if you haven’t already be sure to unlock the glance scene by touching her soul.
  • Then head to the Sacrificial Mound for another ghost fight, if you are quick enough you can actually get a ghost sighting of her before the actual fight begins (Old Woman Wearing Black)
  • After the fight be sure to pick up the Black Diary 2, you can also find a Herbal Medicine in the area should you need it. Then head to the Lake of the Departed for another tracers photo of Yuri (Yuri Kozukata)
  • Go after Yuri to activate a scene. After the scene, as the game suggests, run and head back to shore. We need to escape Mt. Hikami
  • Board the cable car and lets ride out of here. During the ride, head to the back of the cable car and there will be a ghost sighting at the window (Clinging Man). It is actually Tomoki Harawaka who originally appeared in the Postmortem Photography chapter

  1. Hi! A few more ghosts that I’d missed on my playthrough got! Thanks 🙂
    One thing to note is that when you’re heading through the Cherry Blossom Plateau, is that if you approach it from the east you might find the ‘Sitting Girl’ on the north side of the tree for a shot. On my playthroughs I seemed to get her instead of a fight.
