Song of the Yokai

Mission Start Text

I've been eager to go and try a bathhouse that has garnered a lot of attention recently, but as I approached it, I felt something was off about the place. I felt almost like some malevolent being was haunting the place.

Would you mind taking a look? I won't be able to relax and unwind there until I know for sure that it's safe.

Mission End Text

I am Okuniz of Izumo. I travel war-torn lands to dance and comfort the weary hearts of all those that suffer.

I have travelled far and wide, and healed many people, but never before did yokai turn their attention to me.

Thank you, truly.

I hope I can repay you in kind some day, in my own way.

Song of the Yokai Walkthrough


starting point song of the yokai nioh 2 wiki guide 600px

Players arrive at a familiar bathhouse that has made its appearance in the first Nioh game. Go straight and you'll find the shrine for this mission on the left. At the balcony ahead, you'll see two Rokurokubi walking along the corridor on both sides. The goal is to find three tiles that are held by three specific yokai and to use it to reach the backside section of the bathhouse.

Open the first door on the right side and head inside where you'll find a Spa (Hot Spring) that's being guarded by a Koroka. You can use the hot spring after you kill the Yokai. Inside the next room, you'll find the Scampuss. Go back to the corridors and check the rooms on the west side. There'es two Spa (Hot Spring) that you can use that's being guarded by a Nure-Onna and a Toxic Slime - the Nure-Onna drops a Wood Tile: "Ro". After clearing the first floor, go up the stairs on the right side to reach the top floor, there's a Flying Bolt yokai inside the room on the far right side of the corridor where you'll obtain the Wood Tile: "I". The Yamanba that's walking by the corridor hs the Wood Tile: "Ha".

Once you have all three tiles, activate the switch that's in the middle of the corridor to call the lift up. Ride it all the way down where you'll encounter an Enki. You'll find a door as well which is locked and requires the tree tiles to connect "I-Ro-Ha" to open it - before heading inside, rest at the shrine to prepare for the gauntlet of yokai.

In the large room behind the door, you'll encounter a gauntlet of Yokai, first, an Enki will appear, followed by an Oni-bi and Tesso. The last yokai that will appear is an Ubume and it will conjure the dark realm while you fight it - killing the Ubume clears the dark realm and you'll obtain the Back Room Key.

      killing the Ubume clears the dark realm and you'll obtain the Back Room Key.

      What if the Ubume DOESN'T drop the Back Room Key; what then? :/

        Use a Yokai incense near the foot of the stairs on first floor it like teleported me into the “boss battle” room when I used it. I ran around looking for yamanba for like 30 mins.

          Yeah, so the Yamanba didn't spawn for me. It still shows people having died from it but it never appeared.

            What the hell? There is a Yamanba here? I've been running around for like 20 minutes and all I've found is the I and Ro, but there are no more enemies. I've also found two revolving doors at the first floor of the staircases, but neither of them opens from the staircase side.
