You'll find a buried chest at the end of that<br/><br/> path.<br/><br/>#90 Talk to Kai at the entrance to Yoshpet after completing the Wawku Shrine<br/><br/> and she'll challenge you to a race. Beat her to earn the bead.<br/><br/>#91 Start by getting to the top of the tree on the east side of Pon'tan, then<br/><br/> jump down onto the large mushroom in the center. From there, use Vine to<br/><br/> get to the south-east house and run to the top.

Hop on it to reach the high ledge and the<br/><br/> chest.<br/><br/>#99 In Wawku Shrine 5F, after freezing the first spider on this floor, use it<br/><br/> to reach a ledge just above the spider. There you'll find some clay pots<br/><br/> and the chest.<br/><br/>#100 You get this at Ark of Yamato after completing the="=" LEGAL / MISC.="<br/"><br/>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br/><br/> Guide Credits<br/><br/>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br/><br/>Thanks to these folks...<br/><br/>1.
