So to get to this boss fight you will need to advance towards the 'Purification' ending, so here is a quick run-down on how to get here:

You cannot get this achievement in your current playthrough if you have already defeated the Divine Dragon before doing the below steps.

First, defeat Owl on the roof of Ashina Castle. Talk to Kuro inside, then hide behind a corner nearby and eavesdrop on Kuro and Emma. Rest, then speak to Emma and agree with her. Rest again, then head upstairs and speak to Emma again. Next, head to the Old Grave idol and enter the door next to the idol to talk to Emma again. Then head to the Dilapidated Temple and eavesdrop on Emma and the Sculptor from behind the building. Head inside and talk to Emma and choose the option to confront her. She will give you an item. Praying at the Buddha statue will then take you to a modified Hirata Estate.

Kill or run past the first mini-boss (to kill him kite him back towards the bridge and he won't attack you, then Whirlwind Slash him to death), then head in past the idol and you will have a rematch with Juzou the Drunkard. Take him down or not, then head in and through the building to find Owl in the room Lady Butterfly was in previously.

All that just to get to him. This boss is no slouch either, and is easily one of the toughest in the game. His moveset is very similar to his first fight, however there are some tweaks to his combos.

The main tactic here is to just deflect his attacks until he either hits the double shuriken followed by the overhead slam, or the sweep. The former is fairly rare, but if he does it dodge to the side to get behind him for some hits. The sweep is the easiest to bait. Whenever he does a combo and you see the red symbol, jump over the sweep and try and stay in front of him. He will try to go for a charged overhead slam. Dodge to the side just as he shouts and whack him from the back a couple times. Dodge too early and he will perform a very damaging spin attack. Those are the two attacks you are looking for him to do.

What you are looking to avoid is his firecrackers. He pulls these out at the back end of a combo if he doesn't do the sweep. As soon as you see these line the air you have two options. The first is to dodge backwards, which is the safest. Or you can try to dodge forward and to the right to get behind him. This is incredibly risky, but you can get multiple hits in. The other massively damaging attack is his thrust. He can either do this following firecrackers or not. Either way, you want to get out of the way unless you are comfortable with a fairly delayed Mikiri counter. If you mistime it, he will practically one shot you with a flying spin after it.

Into Phase Two, it is very similar to the first in every way but the literal Owl flying about. Father Owl will sometimes disappear. When he does this just run around for a bit because he will pop out of the flying Owl for a slam. The other new attack happens after the Owl lands on his arm. The Owl will turn fiery and fly at you, immediately followed by Father Owl performing his thrust. My advice is to stay away here, jump over the fire owl and let Father Owl thrust air. Otherwise the second phase is the same as the first. Whittle his health down when he launches his overheads, and eventually you should down him for that achievement.
