Rescue the Hostages

Leave Jogaku Temple to the southwest and follow the edge and you’ll eventually reach Kawachi Whaling Village, one of the largest Outposts in this region.

As such, your task here is to rescue the hostages that are captive here and it’s not a bad idea to begin by using the cliff to the southwest to get a lay of the land. You can gain entrance to the large building here via the rooftops and inside you’ll find the first hostage along with many Mongols. This entrance is the best way to go about it unseen, you can easily pass through all floors assassinating them before heading back up to free the captive.

Leave this building and head to the edge to the southwest where you’ll find another large building. You can reach the roof of this one by swinging over using the Iron Hook, allowing you to quietly go about your business removing the Mongol threat. The next hostage can be found out in the open to the northeast of this building, your bow will be useful here to take down as many threats before rushing in to finish off any remaining Mongols, this is one of the easier hostages to rescue.

(1 of 2) Make full use of the rooftops in this area

Make full use of the rooftops in this area (left), and use the bow where possible to take out lone Mongols. (right)

You’ll need to head back up to the east to find the last two hostages, both of these have several Mongols guarding them along with dogs. You’ll find buildings near both of them full with Mongols so work on taking them out first before focusing on the Mongols out in the open with the hostage. On top of the usual rewards you receive, you’ll also obtain a Piece of Mongol Armor needed for the Fit for the Khan Tale.
