You will see two more enemies sitting, approach them carefully as they will instantly jump on you to battle. Take care of them and proceed through the bridge. There will be another bridge once you have crossed the first bridge, go there and reveal a Yokai.
Kill the Yokai and make your way to the left to go to the next area. In the next area, you will have to battle two Ninjas. Try and take them on one at a time as they are very fast and deadly. Once these Ninjas are taken care of, go inside the house where you will encounter another Ninja.
Once you have defeated this Ninja make your way back outside to the area with a group of houses in a courtyard. You will find a few Yokai in the courtyard so be careful and take them on one-by-one. Yokai are vulnerable to fire so try to use the weapons that cause burn damage.

Nue Boss Fight
Nue is a challenging boss that resembles a giant electric dog. Like many bosses in the game, the key to defeat Nue is to dodge and strike in the small attack window. Nue has various attacks and many make use of the lightning.
He can also spit lightning from his mouth, summon a ball of lightning that will follow you around in the area or roll at you. When Nue rolls, dodge out of his way and then go in for a couple of strikes. Usually, you will be able to strike him three times and then back-off.
Do not attack Nue until he rolls at you as he will be vulnerable for a few seconds once it rolls. This is when you will be able to attack him with minimum risk of death. When Nue has taken enough damage, it will start to spray poison at you. While the poison attack is easy to dodge but you need to be close to Nue. Once he is done spraying poison at you, you will get a chance to land a few strikes at him. Just repeat these steps until you have defeated Nue.

You will get a maximum of two hits before you need to back off. Once his health is dropped to half he will apply poison to its weapon. He will also begin to summon spirits to help him. One thing is very important that during the entire battle you do not need to be close to him, except when he dashes at you.
