    Avalanche  10GP	
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ

    Go to the level called "Big Jump." Use your hat to slide down
    the mountainside. When you see a stone lamp run into it and

    After you obtain the spell "Sunrays" in the level "Haunted Forest,"
    use it to defeat every single ghost in the graveyard. This includes
    the ones that are on the way to the exit, not just the ones by the
    shrine.
    
    
    Eat My Dust  10GP
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    "Travel far in full gallop"
    
    At first this achievement can get confusing because it's worded to
    make you think you need to travel far in one full gallop. Once I 
    realized it's like the acheivements for the other playable ninjas, 
    it made things a lot easier. This is based on how many times you use
    the skill, not whether or not you use it correctly in one try. 
    Make sure your Ki bar is full and start walking forward with Tora.
    Hold down Y and keep running forward until your ki runs out. I got 
    the achievement during the 12th run.

    a lot of enemies to get to her.

    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    "Find and free Shun"
    
    Shun is found in the "A Distress Signal" level in the caves. 
    Take the left path over a bridge and he will be guarded by a

    through story mode.

    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    "Retrieve all five missing ninja"
    
    Usually received after you find and free Kunoichi in 
    "Winter Range." If you don't get it after freeing her,
    hold the Lbutton to see if you've missed one.
    
    
    No Conjurer of Cheap Tricks  20GP
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    "Expend 1500 Ki using Kuji magic"
    
    This will come naturally as you use magic throughout the game.
    I usually get it around the "Earth Castle" level, but I spent
    a lot of time running around as an animallooking for various
    ingredients and stuff.

    complete this in order to progress to further levels. It will
    unlock when you talk to the grand master at the exit to Ninja
    Village.
    
    
    Pied Piper 10GP
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    "Incite 50 enemies to dance"
    
    Use Suzume's red orb attack by holding down Y and the enemies
    around you will be charmed into dancing. Don't do this in an

    Poker  10GP
    ŻŻŻŻŻ

    useful. Cast it on him and one of the balls circling him will
    break. Break all of the balls and you will defeat him. 
    Once he has six balls left, he will start flying up in the air
    and attacking you with Kuji Spells of his own. Just dodge them
    and attack the smaller samurai to gain ki energy until he goes
    back down to ground level.
    
    
    Sage of Philosophy  50GP
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    "Reach level cap"
    
    Reach level fifteen. This should happen naturally as you progress
    through the game if you defeat every enemy you find and free all
    of the animals.
    
    
    Sightseeing  30GP
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    "Visit all temples"

    Ninja Mountain
    Leaving Home

    Silent Assas... Ninja  50GP
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    "Complete a level without being seen"
    
    This is easily accomplished on the level "Great River Canyon." 
    From the start go forward on the main path until you see the
    waterfall. Jump off the ledge into the water and hug the right
    wall as you boat over towards the three waterfalls. Jump up onto
    the first rock and over onto the ground to the right that looks
    like it has leaves on it. Wallrun up the ledges to find a cave
    behind the waterfall. Go through the cave to the top of the
    waterfall and go right across the stepping stones. Go to the 
    very edge of the waterfall on the grass and fall down two
    ledges. 
    
    Jump across the gap and then stealth in the grass until you
    come to a Tiger Lily. Go forward a couple of inches to just
    before the path starts to widen and then IN STEALTH drop 
    (NOT JUMP) off the left side into the water. Hug the right
    wall while boating over to where the rock face juts out. 
    Wait for the archer on the pier over to the left to turn 
    around and start walking towards the shore then hold B to 
    boat past quickly while still hugging the right wall. 
    Make your way over to the save point on the far shore and
    then finish out the level like normal because there are no
    more enemies. 
    
    
    Smell You Later  30GP
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    "Defeat Boss Windy Pants"
    
    Dodge all of his attacks, but when he fans a single fart
    cloud at you, run towards him and you will be prompted to
    start a quicktime event that will take a third of his health.
    Repeat this two times and you will defeat him, unlocking
    the achievement.
    
    
    Smooth Sailing  10GP
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    "Flawless Great River Canyon rafting"
    
    This is accomplished by going down BOTH sets of rapids in
    "Great River Canyon" without sustaining any damage to your
    boat-hat. Damage can be seen as a red level marker on the
    hat in the upper right corner of your screen. Paddling 
    backwards to slow yourself down will help, but this is
    a skill-based achievement you will have to work on.
    It will allow you to skid off the top of rocks because this
    doesn't cause damage to your hat. 
    
    
    Stop! Futo Time!  20GP
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    "Use Futo in combat on all levels"
    
    You must use Futo to defeat at least one enemy on every
    level. If you use Futo to defeat the very large samurai
    every time, you will only need to repeat the following 
    levels that don't have one to unlock the achievement:
    
    Ninja Mountain*
    Leaving Home
    Great River Canyon
    A Distress Signal
    Flooded Valley
    Snowy Canyon

    one of the Tengu instead of actually defeating him.
    
    
    Tengu Friend  40GP
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    "Complete all Wandering Tengu quests"
    
    Complete all of the Tengu quests in the game. They are on
    the following levels:
    
    Ninja Mountain- He is in the dojo and will teach you about 
    your skills. His quest is to go find Futo and bring him back
    to the dojo with you. Follow the trail of apples to find him.
    I don't know if this one "counts" or not, but you have to do
    it to progress in the game.
    
    Leaving Home- He will be right at the beginning of the level
    when you go towards the burning village. He wants you to
    defeat the samurai on the other side of the bridge.
    
    Leaving Home- He will be by the entrance to the Temple and he
    wants you to bring him a Burdock Flower. There is one between
    the first and second dog/lion statues on the right of the
    path to the Temple.
    
    A Distress Signal- He will be just before the bridge to the
    smaller islands and he wants you to go visit the Temple on the
    path to the right. My game could be glitchy, but he never gives
    me a reward for doing this, he just keeps asking if I've done 
    it yet, but I still got the achievement at the end.
    
    Haunted Forest- He is off to the left from the start of the 
    level and he wants an Ashida Spear. There is one on the ledge
    above him at the very end next to the tree.
    
    Grassy Hills- There is a Tengu in the caves who says something
    about one of our friends being held captive, but I am not sure
    if this is a quest or not. I just talk to him to be on the 
    safe side.
    
    Flooded Valley- He is at the start of the level and will ask
    you to find his uncle at the Temple. Get in the water and
    boat to the right to find the Temple entrance and then go
    talk to the Temple Tengu. He will respawn on the shore once 
    you've done this.
    
    Winter Range- He's at the start of the level on the main path,
    bring him a Tiger Lily to complete the quest. There is one in 
    the woods to your right if you don't have one.
    
    Tree Hugger  10GP
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    "Shake 15 trees"
    
    You need to shake fifteen separate fruit trees to unlock this.
    Simply shake every tree you see in the first few levels and
    this should unlock pretty quickly.
    
    
    Tripped and fell  30GP
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    "Defeat Boss Timid Swimmer"
    
    Boat to the small stairs in front of you and go up them and to
    the right to find a red pillar. Stand behind it to get him to
    swing at it and a small piece will fall off. Stand behind it
    to trigger the quicktime event that will take a third of his
    health away. Then go back to the stairs, up again, and further
    to the right to find a slightly smaller pillar. Repeat the
    quicktime event. Go back up the stairs a third time, but this
    time go left to find the shortest pillar and trigger the 
    quicktime event a final time. This will unlock the achievement.
    
                              ____________
