Interacting with enough Mysterious Shadows will start to show a pattern of where they appear.
3 Genshin Impact - Sacrificial Offering - Sky Kitsune
Go to the Sky Kitsune Statue near Chinju Forest and interact with the shrine. To obtain the ward in this statue, you must solve the riddle carved into the stone.
4 Genshin Impact - Sacrificial Offering - Fox Statue
According to the riddle, the Mysterious Shadows are called Shikigami and they must be gathered around the three fox statues near the Sky Kitsune Statue.
5 Genshin Impact - Sacrificial Offering - Shikigami
The three Mysterious Shadows are near the base of the area, in front of the Sky Kitsune Statue, and on the rooftop of the nearby building. Interact with the Mysterious Shadows until all three are standing around the fox statues.

Once all three Mysterious Shadows are gathered, a tattered scroll will appear, titled Sacred Sakura Cleansing Summary. Don't forget to collect the 3 Exquisite Chests and 1 Sakura Bloom that will also appear!

The pages of the Sacred Sakura Cleansing Ritual are incomplete, so you will have to go to the Grand Narukami Shrine to continue your investigation.

Talk to Inagi Hotomi to find out how to get the ward from the Sky Kitsune Statue and obtain the Memento Lens.
9 Genshin Impact - Sacrificial Offering - Memento Lens
Go back to the abandoned shrine and use the Memento Lens on the small Earth Kitsune statues to continue your investigation. Using the Memento Lens will show scenes from the past that will tell you what Sacred Words are needed to obtain the ward from the Sky Kitsune Statue
10 Genshin Impact - Sacrificial Offering - Ward
Once you have gotten all three lines used as Sacred Words, go to the Sky Kitsune Statue in the abandoned shrine and say the words in the right order. This will allow you to acquire the ward.
11 Genshin Impact - Sacrificial Offering - Barrier Location
Go south until you find a cliff with a body of water nearby. There will be an entrance to a cave that will be surrounded by Cryo Slimes and a Cryo Abyss Mage. Defeat the enemies and enter the cave to arrive at the barrier.

Use the ward to purify the notch and activate the puzzle. Arrange the surrounding notches to match the pattern as shown in the middle.

This can be achieved by ordering the notch in the middle to display two and the remaining notches to display three. Pray to the initial notch to solve the puzzle.

Solving the puzzle will summon a Mysterious Samurai, the Phantom Warrior of the Abandoned Shrine. Once you defeat the Mysterious Samurai, Kazari will appear and talk to you.
