Offering Electro Sigils to the Sacred Sakura's Favor will increase the level to provide rewards and upgrade Electrograna. Every 25 Electro Sigils will raise the level by one. If the Traveler has sufficient Electro Sigils for multiple levels, they will be automatically used to reach the corresponding level.
The Sacred Sakura is a tree that represents the power of the Electro Archon. Its roots have spread extensively throughout Inazuma, and the Thunder Sakura were grafted from its side branches. The Sacred Sakura and the Thunder Sakura remove evil and purify the land by absorbing filth into its roots. However, the accumulated filth in the roots does not dissipate on its own, so it is necessary to routinely perform a Sacred Sakura Cleansing Ritual to purify the filth.
The Sacred Sakura grew from a seed given from Makoto to Ei after Ei's present-day duel against the Shogun within Makoto's realm of consciousness. Having been unable to slowly ease Ei into the role of Electro Archon before her death in Khaenri'ah during the cataclysm 500 years ago, Makoto inserted a portion of her consciousness into the Musou Isshin, waiting for the day Ei could draw on its power and release her consciousness. Within this realm, the seed Ei planted retroactively took root in Inazuma's past, allowing it to grow so it could protect Inazuma while Ei eased into her role naturally. Ei speculates that Makoto's plan involved a "higher power," Istaroth.
- In the Version 2.0 Special Program, Xiao Luohao, Head of the Creative Concept and Writing Team, explains that the design of the Sakura tree is based on Himorogi (Japanese: 神籬) beliefs and symbolizes Ei's protection over Inazuma. Moreover, the design took inspiration from the quaking aspen tree, namely how the roots of many trees are interconnected and are actually part of one giant tree.
- It is possible that the Sacred Sakura is sentient.
