Fret not if you are the camera shy ones, you can visit the Archery arcade or Shuriken dojo to polish up your skills and prepare for battle.

If training makes you hungry, then be sure to pop by their mouth-watering hideaway and eat your fill before continuing on your Samurai quest. As quoted from Heihachi from the well-acclaimed Samurai 7 anime, “You can't wage a war when you're hungry".
