Go towards the second bonfire through the broken wooden boards. Along the way, you will face a few Water Yokai so be prepared. While moving ahead you will reach a point where you can take a path on a roof, get to the roof and drop down. There will be Yokai in there, so take them out and light the second bonfire then proceed outside and follow the path that has hanging clothes.

If you have arrows for your bows or ammo for your gun, just aim at Umi-Bozu’s head. After a while, he will pounce on you and you will have the chance to go in for the melee attack, and only hit three times then back off.

One thing is very important that you need to go to the sets of fire around the arena and interact with them to apply fire element to your weapon. This is the most effective and the only way to win Umi-Bozu Boss Fight in Nioh. Keep hitting him with ranged weapons until Umi-Bozu pounces at you then go in for the melee attacks.
