The team member assigned to perform the Roadblock would have to dress in the traditional clothes of a samurai archer and learned the Yabusame ritual through observation, consisting of a meditative form ritual before a traditional posing with the yumi bow. Once they perform the first two aspects of the ritual to the dojo master's satisfaction, they will then mount a rotating wooden horse and hit a wooden target with an arrow to receive their next clue.
The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:
Choice A: Prayer of Purity
Teams would have to put on keikogi and travel to the nearby woods where they would take part in a Shinto cleansing ritual. First, they will have to learn a prayer that consists of a chant, lighting incense, and then shouting while thrusting a walking stick out in front of them. Once they've completed the prayers, they will stand under the Yuhi Falls and endure being drenched in 45 °F water cascading down onto them for one minute to receive their next clue.
Choice B: Frog of Luck
Teams would have to strip down to their undergarments and put on fundoshi over them before walking out to a mud pit where they have to search for a toy frog in the mud while having mud thrown at them by locals. Once they find the frog, they have to present it to the nearby frog master for their next clue.
