A series of stories with the rabbit ronin Usagi teaming up with the woman samurai Tomoe. We get a bit more about Tomoe's backstory, but as always, the Usagi stories a worthwhile in and of themselves, apart from the larger story. The final story, as Usagi prepares to leave, is actually an almost wordless historical reenactment of a Japanese tea serving ceremony, which manages to bring us into the almost liturgical way the characters interact, and turns what might be a history lesson into sad, poignant moment to end the book on.
