The story is set in feudal Japan around the year 1300, called, Tokoyo, the Samurai’s Daughter. It is a story of danger, love, sacrifice, and adventure in the Oki Islands. Tokoyo is an indefatigable, unstoppable force of justice. A loving and brave daughter sets on an adventure and puts her life in danger to save her father and while doing that saves so many other girls from sacrifice to the sea monster. Tokoyo is the sort of folktale character we don’t hear about very often. It isn’t that amazing heroines like this don’t exist; it’s that people don’t know about them or choose not to remember or celebrate them.
