Search the Hiyoshi Coast for Blue Flowers
Head to Omi Lake and speak with the peasant sitting by a boat to get this Tale marked on your map, then return to Hiyoshi Springs and sit by the Musician to begin this Tale. After the cutscene has come to a close, head east of Hiyoshi Springs until you reach some Blue Flowers, then follow them to reach a Tomb.
Squeeze through the gap and drop down, then grab the Painting before exiting. Now make your way north of the Tomb to reach Ishohade Coast. Here you’ll find some more Blue Flowers, so follow them down until you reach the Island.
Investigate the Island
Go inside the cave and collect another Painting, then exit for a short scene, now fast travel to Ishikawa’s Dojo and head west to find more Blue Flowers. Follow them up into the mountain and collect the LongBow for a cutscene.
Duel: Tengu Demon
Before you begin attacking the Tengu Demon, make sure you’re in the Stone Stance to deal maximum damage, then wait for him to strike and press [L1] counter, now attack him 2-3 times before getting back. Repeat this cycle until he has been defeated.
However, make sure you dodge his unblockable attacks, as these can take your health down pretty quickly.
