Part II of Ladybug's Prayer for Japan is shot on location in Aztec, New Mexico. Skookum and the Kimono Kids travel on with Robin Hood and his Golden Sword in the hopes of receiving the blessings and Knowledge for their assistance to the ancient lands of Japan. The setting is a sacred Pueblo kiva.

The Story begins in Mesa Verde, Colorado (Japan Series Part I):

In the two short months since Robin Hood had raced to Hawaii to assist Pele, he returned home for a much needed rest. In that time Robin Hood and his trusted crew located his Golden sword and, with only a small battle, were able to retrieve it. Their celebrations and rest were cut short, as not long afterward, Robin Hood received news of the devastating Japanese earthquake and tsunami. He was called again to the American lands, to meet up with his new friends and join in a meeting with the grand council of Elders. The earth has suffered much catastrophe in recent years, but this was on a level none of them had seen before. Robin Hood wasted no time gathering up his horses and returning to his new homeland. His Golden sword was recovered just in time ...

The Story continues in Aztec, New Mexico (Japan Series Part II)

After Robin Hood's meeting with the Elders, he received a cryptic message that he was to travel with the Kimono Kids south, to points unknown, where he was requested to find the 'Way to Heaven'. Without so much as a map or indication of where or why, Robin Hood set out on his mission. There were a few wrong turns along the way and forces nearly caused them to miss their destiny. But in true Robin Hood fashion, he and his friends uncovered  the most highly regarded of the Ladybug's Grace. In the very last minutes of the time window they stumbled upon a secret from the ancient days, one of the oldest Pueblo kivas. There they were blessed with the grace of the Ancient Mother in Tendou Mushi - Way of Heaven.
