How to Compose Haikus

Haikus are composed at haiku spots found all throughout the game world. Once you have discovered a haiku spot, Jin will sit down and observe his surroundings. Look around you using the right analog stick for lines to use in the haiku. Note that you will need to choose 3 lines to finish it.

After composing your haiku, you will receive a headband as a reward.
