Sekiro Shadows Die Twice Merchants Locations and Items List Guide

Sekiro Shadows Die Twice Merchants Locations and Items Guide will help you learn everything about NPC vendors and their items list in Sekiro.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice requires you to consistently be on top of your game which necessitates the use of special items. These items can be purchased through vendors. Most vendors can be found easily, while others will hole up in secluded and hidden spots requiring some work to discover.

In this Shadows Die Twice Merchants Locations Guide, we will explore the location of each of the vendors in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. Additionally, we’ve also highlighted the items found in their respective inventories.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Merchants Locations

Although most merchants will function traditionally, others will require a set amount of Sen, (the in-game currency), before you can unlock their stores and gain access to purchasing options. It is important to note that Merchants do not restock special items, but they do sell an unlimited amount of consumables. There is a total of eleven merchants in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice and some have optional quests associated with them as well.

Anayama the Peddler, Ashina Outskirts

The vendor can be found near the Outskirts Wall – Stairway Idol in Ashina Outskirts right before the Chained Ogre mini-boss fight. You will need to move near the gate that is right before the stairs.

He can later be encountered at the Hirata Estate. Contrary to the other vendors, Anayama will first require you to pay him some money for information on what items he has in store.

This will consequently unlock more items as you progress throughout the game.

Telling him a secret later on which deals with “Salt” and the desires of the Ashina Samaria, and giving him the Old Grave Sculptor Idol in Ashina Outskirts, which will unlock more items in Anayama’s catalog.

Paying 100 Sen will allow you to learn about the location of the Flame Vent in Hirata Estate through the Flame Barrel Memo.

Therefore, a transaction of 50 Sen and then a further 100 Sen will ultimately unlock the plethora of items he has in store for you. Here are all the goods he sells along with instructions on how to unlock the items in the store.
