Legends state that a brave hero, Yamato Takeru, once climbed the mountain to fight with the god, but was cursed with a grave illness for his insolence. While he was able to escape and briefly recover in a sacred spring at the foot of the mountain, his condition deteriorated thereafter, eventually leading to his death.
- Ochoko Cup – Miyanokoshi was an important transportation and trading hub, located at the mouth of Sai River. It is now know by the name Kanaiwa, as part of the Kanazawa City in Ishikawa prefecture.

Nioh 2 doesn't pull any punches, so you might get stuck before you've even begun playing. We've written a guide to help you choose your starting weapon and guardian spirit, and another that shows how to reset skills if you invest in the wrong ones. Once you've dug in, you'll probably want to know how to unlock onmyo magic & ninja proficiency skills, or how to change and use Yokai Shift forms. Getting more skill points is always a priority, which is why we've written about locks of hair locations. If you're hunting rare soul cores, you'll probably want to know about the Mujina locations - finding them is tricky.
