I Just Hope He Doesn't Croak on Us is the ninth episode of The Amazing Race 12.
The order of departure from Bandra Fort are as follows:
Teams must make their way by taxi to Noda Station and find the cleaning man who will hand them their next clue.
The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock would have to put on a hat and gloves as local cabbies do and transport a Japanese couple five miles through a maze of confusing, often one-way streets to a specified address, the Osaka Central Post Office. They cannot invite a local to lead them or join them in the car and the couple could not help them. Upon arrival at the correct address, the couple would hand them their next clue. However, the drivers also have to make their way back to their teammate before they read what was inside the clue.
The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:
Teams must make their way by taxi to the Kita-Mido Temple to find their next clue.
Choice A: Sense of Touch
Teams must make their way on foot to the Shimojima Building and have to use miniature robots controlled by cell phones to play a game of soccer against two robotic defenders. Once each team member have scored a goal, the referee would hand them their next clue.
Only Nicolas & Donald chose this task.
Choice B: Sense of Smell
Teams must make their way to the Saera Flower Shop where only artificial flowers were sold. Once there, they have to use their noses (and only their noses) to identify one real flower hidden among thousands of artificial ones in the two story flower shop. When they've found a real flower, the shop owner would give them their next clue
