In this mission you must defeat the evil in the castle. At the beginning you will face a powerful warrior revenant equipped with a spear. He is a hard opponent because he has many health points. This causes the battle to be quite long. Additionally, he can deal large amount of damage if you fail to block his attacks.
Once you defeat him, go through the only available road to the cliff where you will face a skeleton warrior with an axe, a spider and a warrior revenant - also with an axe. You encountered his bigger version in the mission The Battle of Ohashi Bridge.
Another enemy in the fog is the regular version of one-eyed. Once you defeat him, you can explore the location in search for loot. Go back to the place where you fought the first battle and pass through the newly-opened door.
Here you will face skeletons, spiders and flying bolts hidden in the fog. Once you defeat them, search the room and go to the right. There open the gate to the gardens. Destroy the wall of the building and face the third revenant - this time a samurai. Once they are defeated, the mission will end.
