Toku is a young, scruffy ronin. He wandered into Tsuma with a weathered copy of Akodo’s Leadership in his traveling pack, a go board with no stones, and a katana with no history. His sandals are hanging by a thread.

Yet there’s a look in his eyes full of hope for his prospects. And wonder at the pageantry around him.

And hidden under his kimono,close to his heart, a stack of letters held together with a blue ribbon. Somewhere in Tsuma is a young woman with a similar stack.
