Storyline

When Tokugawa Yoshimune succeeded as eighth shogun in 1716, he brought sixteen men from his homeland of Kii as his private secret guards. They were employed to guard the garden of the Edo Castle and were known as the oniwaban, the “garden patrol”, sometimes referred to as ninjas. Throughout the Edo period, they developed into a team of competent spies. 

You are their leader. 

Lately, you've been hearing rumors and whispers about potential revolts and street fights, so you are sent to keep an eye on things and make sure that Minamoto – one of the shogun’s loyal samurais – is safe. You’re supposed to meet him on the back alleys of Kagurazaka, away from curious eyes.
