Yakuza: Like A Dragon Gardening Guide: All Recipes and Ingredients

Yakuza: Like A Dragon gardening opens up a number of useful recipes and gift items to make your time in Yokohama smoother. Here's how to get started.

There’s a truckload of things to do in Yakuza: Like A Dragon, but when smashing thugs and breaking up diaper kink clubs gets too stressful, you can do a bit of gardening on the side. And you should. Gardening in Yakuza: Like A Dragon gives you a number of important items, some vital for battle and others useful in boosting your relationships.

Yakuza: Like A Dragon Gardening — Getting Started

Gardening unlocks in chapter four, The Dragon of Yokohama. After events unfold during the soapland job, you’ll establish a new base at the Survive Bar. It's a required event, but you'll need to visit again to unlock gardening.

Speak with Iroha the next time you’re there. You’ll get access to the planter boxes outside plus a few seeds to start with.

After this sequence, you’ll run into more plant boxes throughout Yokohama, including locations nearby such as Hamakita Park. Plant boxes are indicated with a green sapling-shaped icon on the map.

You can start purchasing additional seeds and seed types too. Here’s a few areas where you can buy seeds in Yakuza: Like A Dragon.

  • Hero’s Harvest (Hamakita Park)
  • Welcome Pharmacy (Isezaki Road)
  • Kinka Pharmacy (Bar District)

Actually growing the plants is pretty hands off because you don’t need to water them.

Instead, just wait for the allotted grow time to pass, then come back and interact with the plant box to harvest the goods. Using fertilizer cuts down on the grow time if you’re in a hurry, and you can buy fertilizer from the same places that sell seeds.

The yield always includes more than one of whatever you planted, and you’ll eventually get a hold of Mysterious components — bulbs, seeds, compost — that produce rarer items used to create higher level restoratives.

Equally as important, ingredients harvested from plant boxes make up different recipes for restoratives. It’s a win-win situation, since it’s low effort and saves yen.
