The Battle of Ohashi Bridge is a Mission in Nioh.
"I find this hard to believe, but.. It seems that a giant ghost has appeared at Ohashi bridge and is attacking those who cross and stealing their weapons. If it were yokai, that would be one thing...but how can a ghost attack people? William, will you get to the bottom of this for me?" Hattori Hanzo

The Battle of Ohashi Bridge Walkthrough
This is a mini boss with a ghostly warrior that is never seen in the main game. Instead of using the entire bridge like in the Bridge of Bone mission, you will only have half of the area to run around him. Try not to back up too much because you will inevitably hit the gray yokai wall that gets erected once the fight starts. The camera will get far too close to William when this happens and it gets harder to see any enemies coming at you.
Keep in mind that this fight is going to be long. You can try to knock the ghost warrior off of the bridge at the area of the broken rails, but this technique can be unreliable, the goal is to exhaust his ki and perform a critical hit. The warrior uses an axe throughout the entire battle and will use ranged weapons when you're far away. Do not try to unload full combos into him because not all attacks will stagger him, making hit and run tactics viable. When in high stance, the warrior will try to use a two swing combo and the final swing can track the player, so dodge at the last possible second or block if your ki wasn't already reduced by the previous swing. The warrior will also use skills such as Battle Focus to decrease ki consumption.
On higher difficulties such as Way of the Strong, a Raven Tengu accompanies the warrior.
