Chapter 1Edit

Yoshitsune first came to this bridge after being requested by a man from the Main Road, whose sister, Chiyo, was being pursuited by the Heishi. Thus, Yoshitsune came to Gojo Bridge in search of Chiyo, and here he encountered Taira Shoki Moritoshi, a Heishi general who was approaching Chiyo. After a short fight, Yoshitsune easily defeated Moritoshi and escorted Chiyo back to the Main Road.

At night, Yoshitsune came to the bridge once more in order to find the "Genji warrior monk" that Minazuru just told him about. Yoshitsune was shocked by seeing the Heishi soldiers lie beaten all over the place, and right after that, he met the warrior monk, Musashibo Benkei. The two had a clash, and Yoshitsune won in the end. He then dragged Benkei back to the Hermitage of the Tamayoribito in order for Benkei to rest.

Here, the two warrior encountered Taira Shoki Moritoshi, who was the guard, and succesfully defeated him.
