Ohbiru-Dohbiru needs some starmite shells. These can be obtained by killing starmites in the Toraimarai Canal. Starmites can be found at (G-9) on the second map. Ohbiru-Dohbiru also tells you that you will receive 4,500 gil for every 3 starmite shells that you bring him as a reward.
This quest is part of a series of quests offered by the Rhinostery. See the list below to find out which quest comes next.

You have to finish Blue Ribbon blues no matter what so I do not understand why it is not on the list of quests. It is the last one and you have to do it too, so they might as well put it there.
Only after I completed all of the mini quests including blue ribbon blues, was I able to get the certificate.
And remember to zone after you complete either quest to get another one.
I think it is BS if you are not from Windy and to have this as a freebe for them on the new addon. We know how hard it is to get all those mages to the door. Windy has access to this from their missions. Thats the most bogus thing I have ever seen SE do.
I finished all previous Rhinostery quests, but when I went to Ohbiru-Dohbire he kept giving me the Water quest >.< I was fame 6.
After reading somewhere that the "Say it with flowers" quest involved the Rhinostery, I did the quest, but still got the water quest proposed. So I did the water quest but still couldn't get the Toraimarai quest.
So I leveled windy fame up to lvl.7, where you get this comment :
You'd have to be living in a hole somewhere not to have heard that name.
All the bards in the land are singing songs of your outstanding deeds. Keep up the extraordinary work!
And I got my Toraimarai quest ^^
Hope this helps.
access to canal from windy walls is worth activating this quest even if you don't finnish it. hope this helps
The NPC mentions that the Starmites are causing trouble at the roots of the tree, but if you don't know where the roots are it can take some wandering around to find it.

If you've taken care of those issues, this quest should be obtainable at fame level 6ish i think
Nada @ fame 5, cornette runs until fame 6, obtained quest.
I personally did this mini-quest completely out of order, where I got to rank 5, then found out about it, so I traded a rolanberry, which she accepted and thanked me for it, however, gave me nothing in return. I then canceled mission 5-1 (had to go to the person at the top of the tree and choose not to do the mission), and then go to the gate guard and get Mission 2-2 and completed it. I then went back to the tree, and talked to the person I gave the Rolanberry to, and she gave me the key item. I then went to the 3 mage gate, and opened as a test. At the time I was a thf:P.
So, access to Toraimoria canal can be done in 1 of three ways.
3 Mages (RDM/BLM/WHM) at the 3 mage gate in the Ruins.
1 Person (when they open the door any number of ppl can go through) who has completed the mini-quest at the 3 mage gate in the Ruins.
1 Person at the gate in Windurst (I appears to be a cutscene door, so only the person with the key item can go) after completing all these quests.
I am still 3 quests down from completing the last way, however, will post more when I know more.
Oh, and the reason I say the rolanberry thing is a mini-quest is that it does not show up in your quest log (or not that I have seen).
1. Food for Thought
2. Overnight Delivery
3. Water way to go!
4. Blue Ribbon Blues
5. Say it with Flowers
5a. (insert numerous other quests here; to level fame)
6. Toraimarai Turmoil
The issue for me was that I didn't have enough fame to get to step #6. Whenever I talked to Ohbiru-Dohbiru he gave me the "Water way to go!" quest over again. So I did lots of quests and finally got my fame to level 8 (level 9 is "Hero"), and he still wouldn't give me the Toraimari Turmoil quest. So for giggles, I went and did the "Water way to go!" quest one more time (I had the canteen in inventory). Headed to Giddeus, returned, completed the quest, zoned, and talked to Ohbiru-Dohbiru again and he gave me the Toraimari Turmoil quest.
So it was for me; If you already had a canteen, finish that quest and then ask again. I cannot verify that level 8 fame is REQUIRED since I didn't clear the "Water way to go!" quest until I was at that fame level. Another fact of interesting note, I am Rank 5, for what it's worth.
Hope this helps someone, leveling here @ 56 BST is fantastic (Pet: (DC) Slimes Target: (VT) Impish Bats).

You do not have to finish this quest to get T. Canal access. You get access simply by starting this quest.
/em hates the Promis badge quest with a passion.
(edit... just to clarify... Say it With Flowers is also a Rhinostery related quest.)

I need to do my AF there
I had to *also* have 40 unique Windurst quests completed before he would finally offer me the quest. So there is a fame requirement too. Hope this helps.

(the other half requires numerous hours of talking to NPCs, zoning, talking to other NPCs, talking to more NPCs, then talking to the first NPC again. Oh yeah, then you kill stuff or just use sneak and/or invisible to run past it, whichever you prefer. Then you find a ??? or something. I love it when there's a ??? and you examine it and it says there's nothing out of the ordinary. OK? why is there a ??? there then? huh? huh?)
