Summary At the beginning of the seventeenth century, John Blackthorne is an English navigator shipwrecked off the coast of Japan. Rescued, he becomes an eyewitness to a deadly struggle involving Toranaga, a feuding warlord intent on becoming shōgun, the supreme military dictator. At the same time, Blackthorne is irresistibly drawn into the turmoil and finds himself vying to become the first ever gai-jin to be made a samurai warrior
