Product Description:

The emperor of Japan is refusing to carry out his duties. Since everyone expects him to ask his ancestor, the sun goddess Amaterasu, for a successful growing season, his refusal creates a crisis. The shogun sends Seikei to solve the problem--since the emperor, like Seikei, is a 14-year-old boy. Things grow worse when the emperor is kidnapped and the 5000-year-old sacred sword is stolen, and Seikei is suspected. He has only two people to help him: a servant girl who thinks Seikei is actually the emperor, and a mysterious old man who has hidden powers. It's Seikei's most difficult task yet.
