Shotgun Shogun

At the dawn of the United States' and Japan's diplomatic relationship, an Ambassador was sent to Washington D.C. by the ruling Shogunate. Crossing the Pacific Ocean, a violent storm had struck the Ambassador's ship. All aboard were lost at sea. All, that is, but one. It's up to a Samurai by the name of Norio to seek out other survivors in a post Gold Rush, Northern California.
