You control Ryu in this level. You begin near a pathway decorated by arches. Head straight. Shortly after you get past the arches you'll come across a corpse.

When you near them stop and take the Fiend's Bane Bow. Then head up the stairs and through the door. The door will remain closed until you take the bow.
Head up the stairs and you'll fall into room with a giant twisting dragon. You'll be attacked by Archers. Use your newly acquired bow to kill them. After you've offed the Archers, you'll be attacked by Rasetsu. Remember this fellow from the end of Chapter One? Kill this one the same you killed the first one. A cutscene will trigger.
After the cutscene a door will open up in front of you. Inside the hallway goes in two directions. Head right first to find a chest. Kick it open for some Ki. Head back to the left and you'll come to some stairs. Behind them is a corpse. Search it for a Grains of Spiritual Life.

Save and then head up the stairs. You'll come to another paper door, cut it down to enter back into the room you fought the Rasetsu in.
You'll step onto a balcony. Kill the Archer that attacks you and run across the wall to reach over to where he was standing. Cut open the paper doors and kill the second Archer waiting inside. You'll be attacked by several more Archers standing on the balcony across from your own. Kill them and proceed through the paper doors at the back of this room. You'll come across another corpse. Examine it for a Devil's Way Mushroom.
Continue down the hall, cutting through the next series of paper doors. You'll now be in the room adjoining the balcony those Archers were just shooting at you from. A platform will have lowered connecting to the original balcony you began on.
Crystal Skull In the hallway connecting the left and right balcony areas there's a room with a lot supply shelves. Check the shelf by itself to receive a Crystal Skull.
Return to that first balcony and hop on the platform. Once you do the dragon's mouth will open. Head through and you'll see a Save Statue. Before using it head to the opposite end of the hall to find a chest Open it for some Essence. Jump through the hole in the wall so you're back on the roof. You'll be attacked by Phantom Warlocks.
Head around the roof and you'll come to another hole in the wall. Jump through. You'll enter into an octagonal room with some Archers. Kill them and head to the side of the room opposite the stairs. There's a hole, jump down it. There's a Muramasa Statue and Save Statue down there. Instead, open the chest to its left. It contains a Life of the Thousand Gods. Head back and up the stairs. You'll enter another a hallway and trigger a cutscene and boss battle.
Boss Battle: Genshin
You can only damage Genshin when he's not attacking. Whatthis means is that you need to block and evade his combos and then in the split second he gives you before launching his next round of attacks work in a few of your own.
A few things to note, if Genshin evades your attacks he's about to hit you with his own. Counter that one right back at him. One of his worst attacks by far is his Ninpo attack. He'll form a black ball in front of him. Jump out of the way or use a well time Reverse Wind to avoid it or it will knock a good chunk of your health off. Beat him and the level ends.
