Shrine Entrance

Bandou Shrine (坂東宮, Bandou Miya)? is a location in Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne.



The Bandou Shrine (Masakado-Zuka on the overworld map) is the grave of Masakado, which lies to the northeast of the Obelisk/Tower of Kagutsuchi. It can only be accessed once the Demi-fiend has collected all of the Magatamas scattered throughout the Vortex World. Once all of the Magatamas have been collected, entering the Cathedral of Shadows will prompt the Minister to present the Lord's Blade to the Demi-fiend, which will unlock the entrance of the shrine.

Collecting of the Magatamas requires the Demi-fiend to climb the Tower of Kagutsuchi and collect the Kailash Magatama from the Junk Shop. If the Labyrinth of Amala hasn't been fully completed, entering the Tower of Kagutsuchi from the Obelisk will lock the end of the Labyrinth and the True Demon Ending. If the Fifth Kalpa has not been accessed, the Demi-fiend will be prevented from entering. If the Fifth Kalpa has been accessed, but not completed, the Demi-fiend will not be able to access the elevator to commit to the True Demon Ending.

The demons inside the Bandou Shrine will behave as if they were in the Labyrinth of Amala, and cannot be recruited through negotiation.

Jikokuten guards the pillar on the lowest level, using a demon that drains/repels Ice will limit his press turns. Zouchouten guards the second pillar from the bottom, using a demon that drains/repels Electricity will limit his press turns. Bishamonten guards the second pillar from the top, using demons that drain/repel Fire will limit his press turns. Koumokuten guards the highest pillar, demons that drain/repel Physical and Wind attacks will reduce his press turns.
