How to Fast Travel in Like a Dragon: Ishin with a Palanquin

The Yakuza and Like a Dragon games never really used traditional fast travel systems, and Like a Dragon: Ishin is no different. You can’t immediately select a place you’ve visited or look at a list of locations in a menu, the teleport there. Rather, you need to pay a dedicated person to get you from one point to another. While cabs were the vehicle of choice in Yakuza, you’ll turn to Palanquin Bearers in Like a Dragon: Ishin.

How to Fast Travel in a Palanquin in Like a Dragon: Ishin

First, you won’t be able to immediately fast travel in Like a Dragon: Ishin. Don’t expect to take a palanquin in Tosa or the first chapter or so you’re in Kyo. However, by the time you hit chapter four, you’ll find Palanquin Bearers at designated spots around the city. Each icon on the map looks like a little purple container with two sticks at the top. There will be a fee, typically 500 to 550 mon, to get from one point to another.

You’ll also only be able to select specific locations from the list, rather than choose to go anywhere. As a spoiler-free example, the only fast travel Palanquin Bearers in the fourth chapter of Like a Dragon: Ishin will be at Rakunai, Rakugai (Kurogane Smithing), Mibu, Gion, and in the southwest corner of the Fushimi map.

What is a Palanquin?

Good question! This is a basically a single-person “vehicle” carried by people to get around. One person sits inside the box, while two to six people carry them around by holding the poles and walking. However, when you happen upon one of the Palaquin Bearers in-game, there’s usually just one person hanging around.

Like a Dragon: Ishin is available on the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC.
