You will reach to an area with lot of ice around, keep following the path blocked by yokai’s. you will need to use the meter on top right to reach the marked location.

She has different type of attacks. First if you try to reach near she can damage your health really hard by ice spikes that appear from below the ground. Next she will walk towards you and give a combo hit. She will halt for a while, you need to be near. She is also capable of throwing weapons around.
