Hues of the Violet Garden is an event that celebrates Inazuma's Irodori Festival. You can play two quest chains and four sub-events during the event. You'll even get Primogems, a Crown of Insight, and other rewards by playing through the quests and mini-games!

How to Unlock Hues of the Violet Garden

Irodori Festival Prerequisites

Basic Requirements • Reach Adventure Rank 30+
• Finish Ritou Escape Plan in Ch. 2: Act 1
Recommended Quests Ayato's Story Quest
Raiden's Story Quest Act 2
Kokomi's Story Quest

You actually only need to complete "Ritou Escape Plan" in the Archon Quest for Chapter 2: Act 1 to unlock Hues of the Violet Garden.

Genshin recommends you complete Ayato, Raiden, and Kokomi's story quests for full immersion but you don't really need to do them to unlock the event.

How to Quick Start in Hues of the Violet Garden

The "Quick Start" button lets you play Hues of the Violet Garden right away without having to do any of the recommended Story Quests.

There isn't much of a difference starting the event this way. The only notable thing we observed is that you don't get the character introduction banners for the story quest characters during the main event quest chain if you've played their story quests.

Irodori Festival Story and Lore

Organized by the Yae Publishing House and the Yashiro Commission

Genshin - Irodori Festival - Ayato and Yae Miko

The Irodori Festival is one of the traditional festivals celebrating poetry in Inazuma. This year, the Yae Publishing House headed by Yae Miko had decided to expand the festival's scope to include Light Novels in the celebration, with the help of Kamisato Ayato and the Yashiro Commission.

Celebrate Poetry and Light Novels

Genshin - Irodori Festival - Poets and Writers from Other Nations

Yae Miko's reasoning, revealed during the True Tales of the Violet Garden: Act 1 quest, is that poetry was celebrated because it used to be the popular form of entertainment in the past, and they must now adjust to the present, where people are more into Light Novels. Thus, the Yashiro Commission invited poets, writers, and bards from Mondstadt and Liyue to participate in the festival.

Irodori Festival Books

Genshin - Irodori Festival - Stalls for Book Sellers

The Irodori Festival is mainly celebrated in Ritou, where stalls have been set up to showcase various, newly published, written works. Authors also get to meet fans and sign copies of their published works during the festival.

A Legend of Sword Showcase

Genshin - Irodori Festival - Albedo with Klee

The author and artist for the popular ''A Legend of Sword'' series also attended the festival! The author of A Legend of Sword, Xingqiu, attended under his pen name, ''Zhenyu.''

The artist for A Legend of Sword, Albedo, attended the Irodori Festival under his pen name, ''Calx.''

Albedo also brought along his sister, Klee! The Traveler gets to spend more time with Klee during the Irodori Anecdotes: Part 1 quest, ''A Story for You.''

Newly Published Books in the Irodori Festival

Legend of the Five Kasen

Genshin - Irodori Festival - The Five Kasen Full Illustration

Part of the Irodori Festival is celebrating ''The Five Kasen,'' five legendary poets who were known for regularly presenting their poetry to the Raiden Shogun herself.

The Five Kasen Plaza

Genshin - Irodori Festival - Albedo about the five kasen

Albedo became in charge of creating the centre-piece of the Irodori Festival, five illustrations of ''The Five Kasen'' unveiled throughout the course of the festival at the Five Kasen Plaza.

Using Other Characters' Likeness

Member of the Five Kasen Character Inspiration
Suikou Venti
Ao no Okina Xingqiu
Akahito Kazuha
Sumizome Ayaka
Kuronushi Scaramouche

Albedo admitted to taking inspiration from the people he had met during the festival in his illustrations, with the exception of the final piece. For the likeness of Kuronushi, Albedo talked to a certain someone to get inspiration.

Many legends and stories have been told about The Five Kasen, with one such story being the center of the True Tales of the Violet Garden quests during the festival event.
