Rescue the Hostages
Make your way to the far south of Kushi Temple to locate the Iijima Farmstead and your main objective here is to rescue the four hostages captive here.
If you enter from the north, you’ll find a house nearby that has a hostage just outside it to the south. Head around this house to easily dispatch a few Mongols and then head over to the center where the hostage is to deal with the rest using a Chain Assassination if possible. Continue to the nearby hut to the south and take care of the Mongol here before rescuing another easy to find hostage out on the walkway.
The next hostage can be found further south, on a thin walkway surrounded by Mongols with a troublesome archer on a nearby tower. Be sure to take the time out to sniper them first before dropping down and perhaps using a Smoke Bomb to clear out the others nearby the hostage or else they may cut him down. The final hostage is located in the center of the farmstead itself and you’ll have to contend with dogs this time too. Aside from the usual rewards for completing this outpost, you’ll also obtain the Key of Iijima needed for the Unbreakable Gosaku Mythic Tale.
