A monk sips morning tea, it's quiet, the chrysanthemum's flowering.
With the Shogunate established and the wars over, there are far too many ronin. For some of them, the lure of the contemplative life vyies against the code of bushido. The others simply long for an honorable death.
The mountain hamlet is primitive, but provides respite from bandits. Fourteen ronin enter the hamlet. Fourteen shall leave.
Join us for a tale of Bushido set in feudal Japan. All characters (male and female) shall be drawn from the samurai caste.
Even in Kyoto-- hearing the cuckoo's cry-- I long for Kyoto.
