Episode Summary

The remaining four teams take off from their Pit Stop at the Bandra Fort, a nearly 500-year-old fort in Mumbai, India built by the Portuguese, and receive a clue instructing them to fly nearly 4,000 miles to Osaka, Japan. Once in Japan, teams travel to Kishiwata Castle by taxi, where they find another clue instructing them travel by taxi to Noda Station and locate a cleaning man who has their next clue. The clue gives details for a Roadblock task that requires one member of each team to become a taxi driver and do a taxing taxi drive through the streets of Osaka. Upon completing the task, racers return to their partners with the clue, which instructs them to travel to the sixteenth century Buddhist Kita-Mido Temple. The next task they face is a Detour requiring them to either sniff out flowers or take part in a robotic soccer match. In the end, one team makes a critical mistake in boarding a flight that arrives over three hours after the other teams' flight. They arrive in Osaka, complete the tasks, and receive surprising but pleasant news upon arriving at the leg's Pit Stop, Tempozan Park.moreless
