Revived Taka Pass
|Connects To||Kusa Village
|Notable Inhabitant(s)||Mr. & Mrs. Cutter
Taka Pass is one of the hub area in Okami and it is opened up after you make a new bridge link to it in Agata Forest. It's Guardian Sapling is found on a ledge high above the rest of the area and it must be revived before you can explore the area more. After you learn a new digging Dojo Technique you can visit a Divine Spring.
It is a very hilly area filled with rocky outcrops and elevated plateaus.
Being a hub area it is connected to lots of other places, these being Kusa Village, Agata Forest, Sasa Sanctuary and City Checkpoint.
It also has a few human settlements such as Mr. & Mrs. Cutter's House, a teahouse and even a family of Moles. It also has a few people roaming around it that appear to not have a house there such as a woman outside the area's Mermaid Spring and a man examining a suspicious piece of wall.
 Side Quests
Along with reviving various Cherry Blossoms for Praise, Taka Pass also has a few sidequests. These include:
- A Secret Brush Technique sidequest. Amaterasu must get the Golden Teacup back off the group of moles by hitting their leader when he pops out of the ground. If you return the Teacup to the teashop owner he will give you the Golden Mushroom which when given to a restaurant owner, Yama, in Sei'an City enables you to learn Fireburst.
- After getting back the teacup you can still play the tackling mini gaame with the moles, however the leader will only give out Treasure when hit.
- There is a digging mini game with Bingo the Treasure hunter. Helping him find the treasure will earn you a Sun Fragment.
- The Dead Fish on Haruka's Wanted List appear here. The only appear in Demon Scrolls at night and after Amaterasu kills all five, she can return to Haruka in the inn in Kusa Village for a Gold Dust.
