Otori's Dojo is a location in Red Steel. It's the first place the main character Scott Monroe visits upon his arrival in Tokyo, Japan.


After Isao Sato dies, Scott flies to Japan and heads to Otori's Dojo in Tokyo. Otori is a long-time friend and loyal ally to Sato. When Scott reveals the Katana Giri, he is welcomed inside. Otori allows Scott to use the dojo as a place to train and rest whenever needed. And Otori's daughter Mariko agrees to train Scott in his sword skills.

Otori directs Scott to Harry's Club to find the answers he's looking for, since the club is a popular "hang out" for Yakuza types.

After assisting the Sanro Kai in taking back their respecting districts in Tokyo, Scott heads back to Otori's Dojo where Otori gives Scott a new, heavier sword. Otori holds the Katana Giri at the Dojo while Scott trains with Mariko and later continues his journey.

Tokai's men find out about the Katana Giri and attack the Dojo. Upon Scott's arrival back at the Dojo, he battles Komori ninjas and rescues the dojo students and Kenji the guard. Together, Scott and Otori fend off the ninjas but Mariko is severely injured, and the Komoris escape with the sword.

After recovering the sword, Scott visits Otori back at his dojo where he finds that Mariko had been poisoned in the battle at the dojo. Otori wants revenge.

Together, Scott and Otori head to Tokai's residence. Otori wants to kill Tokai and Scott needs to rescue Miyu Sato.
