Strategy to Defeat Juzou
The best thing to do is to kill all the enemies around Juzou before confronting him. If you talk to Nogami Gensai, he will also support you in the fight. He is the key to victory! However, you must first defeat all other enemies before you call Nogami into the battle.
To kill the surrounding enemies go through the buildings of the left side and take them one by one. Follow the course and you can then stab an enemy with a wooden shield - now all enemies are storming towards you!
Kill the henchman as fast as possible and then eliminate one opponent after another until only Juzou is left.
Now escape back to the building and wait for Juzou to lose track and return to his starting position.
Sneak up on him and attack him with a stealth attack to reduce his life-bar.
Then walk to Nogami Gensai and talk to him to help you. Just stay behind Juzou all the time and wait until he focuses on Nogami.
Juzou is not so complicated once his attacks are learned. Generally, he attacks two or three times in a row. Before making a formidable attack that must be avoided by jumping (A / X) but it is a difficult habit to take.
The best time to attack Juzou when he drinks alcohol but when he spits, you should not stay in front of him otherwise you will be poisoned, make a dash to put yourself in his back and attack.
Defeating Juzou will unlock Unrefined Sake and Prayer Bead.
