The Mausoleum of Evil

Mission Start Text

They say it is not only Otakemaru who sleeps within Byodio-In. many other foul spirits that have brought calamity to these lands can be found there. I feel terrible sending my child alone into such a place, but all I can do is beg that you take care of yourself.

With luck, there should be a clue in there that will bring you closer to restoring the power of Sohayamaru. Hanebi and I will await your return.

Mission End Text

What we saw in that mural down there was the blade passed down through the Sohaya for generations, the sword that can slay any yokai. I'm sure of it.

In order to restore that blade, it seems that we will need that dagger of yours, this sword guard of mine, and a whole heap of Spirit Stones.

Tokichiro has already taken Kanto and draws ever closer to bringing the entire nation under his rule. We can't afford to waste a second.

Once he conjures the dark realm, his attacks will be empowered and he'll gain another attack where he whips his hair in a circular motion.
