In Like a Dragon Ishin, Sakiko's questions come at the end of her long monologue, with only one chance to get a refresher - effectively your single-use lifeline. So rather than a test of intelligence or your skill with the Like a Dragon Ishin fighting styles, it's a memory challenge, and not an easy one. Here's the answers to her questions:

  1. What did Sakiko say she started to like when she was older? Bamboo shoots.
  2. My old friend, Kotaro-chan - where did we reunite? Outside a tea shop.
  3. Do you remember my name? Of course - it's Sakiko.

This isn't the first time you'll have to play this game with Sakiko, but it's the one that can catch you unawares, because it's not clear that you're going to be tested afterwards and you probably didn't actually bother to pay attention. Sakiko will give you a reward depending on how well you played (and with our help, you've got no excuse for not getting three out of three), and later in the game you'll be able to repeat this process for further rewards.

The first time you encounter Sakiko, of course, it's likely when you're wondering where to go where to go in Fushimi in Like a Dragon Ishin. We can explain that to you here, or use our Like a Dragon Ishin tips to help remind yourself of the true fundamentals!
