Like a Dragon: Ishin

Wanted Men Jozo Location

Matt Chard

After completing the first Wanted Men request in Like a Dragon: Ishin, you’ll get access to your second victim. If you can’t accept it, leave Mukurogai, and re-enter the area. This is similar to your first request, but you’ll have to battle the Tengu’s leader in the fight this time.

Jozo, the leader of the Tengu will be your second Wanted Men Request.

Where to Find Wanted Men Jozo

The pamphlet will tell you that Jozo can be found near Mukurogai, which will be confirmed by talking to the resident near the gate exit who’ll tell you someone from the Tengu is looking for you. Exit the gate, and take the west path to the Jizo Statue. There will be a Tengu opposite the dojo, to the statue’s left. Speak to them, and they’ll take you to the leader, Jozo.

(1 of 4) Speak to the Mukurogai resident, and he’ll tell you that a tengu is looking for you.

How to Defeat Wanted Men: Jozo

As stated above, this is a similar battle to the previous one, but you’ll have Jozo in the battle with them. Unfortunately, it’s more difficult to take everything down with Wild Dance as Jozo will regularly attack while you’re fighting the rest of the crew. Instead, switch over to the Swordsman Style, and focus on each enemy while holding down guard any time an attack comes your way. When it’s just you and Jozo, you’ll soon find out he’s armored. There are a couple of methods to deal with this, the easiest being using the Gunman Style’s Acid Rounds, but you may not have access to them earlier in the game. If this is the case, you’ll have to be patient, and chip away at him until it breaks.

Use the Swordsman Style to take the enemies down one by one, but be ready to guard or evade at a moment’s notice.

Now you can either stay in Swordsman style, and perform a regular three-hit combo followed by a block/parry which is the easiest way to deal with him. The other method is to use Gunman Style shooting him by repeatedly press the DualSense-ButtonSquare / Xbox-ButtonX button, but he will block/deflect some bullets, although you can knock him down with your special ammo attack.

Once you’ve defeated Jozo, you’ll get a short scene where the Tengu has one more trick up their sleeves and that is to…RUN. After they cowardly run away, you’ll see them have a conversation with a mysterious person dressed in a golden robe. What could be going on? Once the scene ends, you’ll be taken back to the Wanted Men HQ where you’ll automatically turn in the request.

Who’s this mysterious person who was watching you?

Wanted Men Jozo Rewards

Completing this bounty will reward you with 4 ryo plus any items that they may drop after the fight. You’ll also receive the Tengu Tamer trophy/achievement.
