Starting Location: A Thief of Innocence
Investigate Kuma’s disappearance
After you spoke to the woman who hasn’t seen her daugther in a few days, head over to the Dojo, which is in plain sight. There is a total of three persons you can talk to; sadly no one has any valuable information on her whereabouts.
Speak to the Ronin at the Dojo
Follow the Ronin
Approach and follow him to a secluded area, as he does not want to speak while anyone else is listening.
Search for the Numanaka Inn
The Ronin knows where Kuma is located – she is at the Numanaka Inn, close to the middle of Toyotama. If you happen to have a fast-travel point unlocked nearby, use it to save some time.
As expected, the area features some enemies – about a dozen in total.
Lead Kuma to Safety
Time to end Sanetoki in a Duel. He does not have any special abilites to worry about, so the general tactics of other Duel’s applies: Watch out, when his weapon emits a red or blue glow and dodge/parry accordingly, followed by some quick counter-attacks.
This finishes the A Thief of Innocence quest in Ghost of Tsushima.
