MS Mushroom Shrine Icon.png Sakura Castle[edit]

  • Required level: 70+
  • Roads: Sakura Castle

Sakura Castle is a theme dungeon accessed via the Dimensional Mirror. The monsters and maps are all based on Ninja Castle. In fact, Sakura Castle replaced Zipangu's Ninja Castle in several versions. A few versions have both castles, however.

Tae Gong the fisherman finds a book while fishing, and decides to dispose of it by giving it to you. Wiz the Librarian senses this, and runs to you, telling you to find out what's happening in the book. As you enter the book, you discover that the town's Daimyo ruler has been replaced with an impostor, according to Sasuke the guard. It's up to you to find the Daimyo's daughter, Princess Suzume, and to find out where the real Daimyo is, leading up to a boss battle with the impostor, who is revealed to really be a giant toad.
