This adventure, Five Deadly Shadows, is from Dungeon #195. A 4e adventure which I converted to 5e. I used this to show the players two things – the larger spiritual battle happening between Amaterasu and Tsuki-Yomi vs the oni god Fumeiyoshi. As well as the cultural difference between East and West in particular for a Japanese-analogue culture.
Apart from emphasising these powers through the adventure and making it explicit that the Five Deadly Shadows worshiped Fumeiyoshi I played the adventure as written.
The half-one geishas support Namiko in the battle.
