Hi, welcome to this post, We hope you find this Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin – All Rewards and Farming Tips guide useful.
This guide includes floor rewards with rarities, all new spirit boughs from the 1.09 update, plus farming techniques.

[Hanasaka in Japanese] Information on the Aphid Extermination minigame (Sakuna the Efflorescent).


Midway through the game, you unlock the ability to exterminate Aphids. Upon completing 5 waves, you unlock a new version with 100 waves. Each wave lasts roughly 1 minute, you must defend a tree from the little bugs.

This guide focuses on farming this minigame for rewards, so it won’t contain many general tips for beating it. Rising Carp, when leveled up, does wonders here.

Note: Unzip “dataWin/common.arc,” travel to “Common/Param/Game/Hanasaka,” and use a hex editor to examine the files there.


Farming Tips and Takeaways

  • Rewards are obtained upon reaching the numbered floors; you get the same reward upon dying on floor 35 as beating floor 35
  • When you reach a (multiple of five) floor once, you can start there any time. So no need to fret upon dying your first time through
  • You do not need this guide for your first time through
  • If you find it difficult, leveling up your rice will not help. Level up your skills instead — Rising Carp at level 11+ is a must-have.
  • Time does not pass during this minigame; your hunger never decreases — use the best food you can
  • Strength, magic, damage are all entirely irrelevant. Without exception, no damage-boosting effect will affect your damage to Aphids — it’s always 2 light hits per yellow, etc. So only equip weapons which help given this. Critical hits still occur, so luck is the most important attribute


Recommended Route for all Spirit Boughs

Start on Floor 91, continue through Floor 100. It should take around 10-11 minutes. Repeat this 50-70 times if you want everything. It’s extremely tedious.

Recommended Gear


  • 1H: Demonic Pearl Ladle+ — boost your food
  • 1H: (Alternative): Gold Iron+
  • 2H: Holy Tree Spade+ — required. Heals SP when you get amber.
  • Garment: Wave Hunter’s Garment+ — decreases SP costs of Rising Carp
  • Garment: (Alternative): Rice Hunter’s Garment+ — gives luck if you don’t need SP
  • Hat: Devotional Hat+
  • Mask: Kamuhitsuki Mask+, Lucky Mask+, or Kitsune Mask+
  • Spirit Boughs: Tycoon
  • Other good spirit boughs: Double Digestion, Luck Boost+, Skill Boost, Skill Boost Fragment, Gusto Boost, Mask Power Boost, 1H Power Boost, 2H Power Boost, Headgear Power Boost


Recommended Meal


  • Pheasant Meat Soup x4 — Pheasant Meat x4, Soup Stock x4, Miso x4
  • Skill Water — Skill Powder x2

This maximizes your SP. Your goal is infinite SP.

With 177+40 Gusto = 217 Gusto, this meal and outfit combo got me +307 SP, totaling 357 SP. Each shard of amber, which you’re continuously collected, healed me 10% of my max SP so +36sp per shard of amber. I never dropped below 75% of my max SP doing this, so this entire outfit is a bit overkill.

Farming Strategy (Tedious)

Set “Rising Carp” ideally level 15 to “X”. Stand in the middle of the bottom of the map. Press X over and over and over again. That’s it. You should kill enough enemies to have infinite SP, so you can spam this infinitely.

Roughly once every 700ms you can press X. I recommend setting up a macro, or using any Steam Input controller to do an interruptible toggle turbo so that you’re auto-pressing X every 700ms.

You’ll occasionally have to move back to the center, or to hit a far-out blue ranged Aphid. You might occasionally have to jump to take out aphids on the top branch. It would be best if you pressed “A” to progress to the next wave.

Watch some TV shows while you do this. You’ll make it through a lot of TV.

Non-renewable Rewards by Floor

All of these rewards are one-time. Meaning if the quantity of the given item in your inventory is more significant than zero, you will not obtain the reward. (You can’t get two copies of a Spirit Bough, but using Kamuhitsuki Mask to awaken Kamuhitsuki Mask+ means you will get another copy on floor 75)

Since the loot pool is technically most saturated after floor 90, you might think it’s not a good place to farm. Recall that the rarity of each spirit bough dramatically decreases by floor 100.
