As a piece of short fiction, I thought it was very elegant, well-written and well-researched. Characters felt like Japanese of the Edo period, not 19th century Americans with some random Japanese words strewn here and were. My inner language geek was content.

As a romance, however, it wasn't nearly so satisfying. Oh, there was some, but what comes off as an open, Japanese-like, ending when you view it as a piece of a general fiction, feels abrupt and unfinished to a romance reader.
