miHoyo has finally released Genshin Impact 2.0 update on 21st July 2021. Update 2.0 Introduces a new Japanese themed region, Inazuma, which the developers have been teasing for a long time now.
Inazuma is the third of the seven regions of Genshin Impact relevant for main storyline progression. Prior to update 2.0, Genshin Impact had two explorable regions- Mondstadt (European Themed) and Liyue (Chinese Themed). The update brings new Archon quests (Main Story Questline) and several world quests. In version 2.0, three areas, Narukami Island, Kannazuka, and Yashiori Island in the Inazuma region will be available.

Search for the source of the strange voice
You learn that an old friend of Kazari’s can be found in Chinju Forest. While in the forest you hear a strange shout. You will find the source of the strange voice in Chinju Forest at the location as shown in the picture below. At the highlighted location you will find a weird statue. Defeat the Hilichurls near the statue and then talk to the weird statue. The statue will ask you to find three little tanukis (Shousei, Gyougu Koban, and Kichiboushi) and play with them.
Find the little Tanuki (3/3)
From the location of the statue turn around and go down the stairs. You will find a little black Tanuki at the location as shown in the picture below. Follow it down the stairs and finally, it will turn into a torch. Attack the torch with fire.
Go down the stairs and turn right. At the location, as shown in the picture below you will find a few enemies with a barrel kept on top of a rock. Defeat the enemies and then destroy the barrel. Investigate the top of the rock for the second Tanuki to appear.
The final Tanuki is at the location as shown in the picture below. Follow it and you will end up at a location with three torches. Light up the three torches. Once you have found the three statues, report back to the statue, Ioroi. Ioroi will inform you that the seal should be under the cliff face to the east. Head to the objective marker and jump down the cliff to reach the barrier location.
