You unlock expeditions when you upgrade the Guild (building) to lvl. 2. To start an expedition you first need to craft a map from map fragments and for a minimal amount of Coins (see the table below). To craft a map, tap map fragments on expedition screen. Once you've crafted a map you can mount an expedition (by clicking on it) which comes at a greater cost (see the table below). After you complete an expedition you will get some guaranteed rewards, guaranteed amount of experience and a chance (60%) of finding an artifact. You are not guaranteed to get an artifact every time you complete an expedition, and you are not guaranteed to a different artifact each time. You will routinely get an artifact more than once. Excess artifacts do not bring any extra bonuses, but they can be sold in the Shop. There are also skills which you can learn, which help you with expeditions (see Haruka - skills).

Haruka - skills (expedition skills)
Notes to the table above:
- Navigator and Cartographer lvl. 1 automatically unlocks when you unlock Expedition (Guild lvl. 2).
- Cartographer levels define which level of Treasure maps you can craft (Cartographer lvl. 2 allows you to craft Treasure maps lvl. 1 and lvl. 2).
- Initiative - Treasure map fragments have to be collected in the Expedition tab. If warehouse is full, Treasure map fragments can't be collected.
- Economist - Reduces the amount of items needed to mount any expedition.
- Some more coffee! - Increases the amount of Coffee beans you get from expeditions by 25%.
Expedition rewards
By completing an expedition, you can get loot. Explanation of this table: [15 or 20 (18 or 24)] under Wood for lvl. 1 expedition means that every time you complete a lvl. 1 expedition you get either 15 or 20 Wood (not something in between). Numbers in the parentheses indicate the same number plus an extra 20% which the Hannya mask artifact gives. The "-" between two numbers means that you can get that item from the first number to the second number (example: 4-7 fragments, means you can get from 4, 5, 6 or 7 fragments). You always get Wood, Stone, Coffee beans and map fragments (only for lvl. 1 and lvl. 2 expeditions).

This table only shows the average number for rewards you get from expeditions without artifacts or any other bonuses. All 5 lvl. 4 expeditions were from Smuggler's maps. The table was last updated on: 15 January 2022.
If you want to help with the table, message me at urbanpy@gmail.com and I will send you an invite. Everything is automated, you only have to put in your expedition rewards.
Expedition progress
Every expedition has a progress bar, which shows how many puzzles you have solved in that section (e.g. in section Solve: Colored Nonograms) - the empty squares, which get colored green after after puzzles get solved. Sometimes the squares don't get fully colored, because you have solved a bigger puzzle. You can get 1, 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, etc. to a maximum of 4 puzzles solved. The exact formula for how much a puzzle is worth is unknown. It's recommended to solve the bare minimum of the required puzzle, to not waste time and effort (e.g. if it requires 10x10 nonograms, solve only 10x10 nonograms).
There is also a progress bar, which shows the progress of the entire expedition, but it's more subtle. This progress bar is the map beside Haruka, which has 11 empty circles, which get colored after a certain amount of puzzles has been solved, and a cross at the end. Because every expedition level requires different amounts puzzles to be solved, circles get colored by different milestones.

The numbers above are only valid if progress is made one whole puzzle at a time (i.e. no decimals like 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, etc.). The numbers above might also not be correct, because of decimal puzzles solved in the data and need to be checked.
Haruka
Haruka Matsumoto is your navigator on expeditions. She navigates you through expeditions by counting how many puzzles you have solved and which ones. She also crafts maps and finds Treasure map fragments lvl. 1 (depends on which skills she has learnt). She has some quotes, which she says after a certain event:
- Hi! I'm Haruka Matsumoto. I will be your navigator on expeditions.
To start the expedition, we will need a treasure map and equipment. - when you build Guild lvl. 2 (i.e. unlock Expedition).
- Hello! or How's it going? - after you finish an expedition and come into the Expedition tab (i.e. whenever there is no ongoing expedition).
- This is my favorite part! - after you craft (she crafts) a map.
- The expedition started! - after you start an expedition lvl. 1, lvl. 2 or lvl. 3.
- Sea voyage! - after you start an expedition lvl. 4 (or a Smuggler's map expedition).
- Hope this helps. - after collecting the daily Map fragment(s) lvl. 1 from the Expedition tab, but only if there is no ongoing expedition.
- That way it will go faster! - after you use Ramen.
- I feel that we are on the right track. - after you use Curry.
- It's so beautiful! Thank you! - after Necklace for Haruka craftifact is crafted.
