The daughter of a Buddhist priest, Tsuneno was born in 1804 in a village in Japan’s snow country and was expected to lead a life much like her mother’s. Instead – after three divorces and with a temperament much too strong-willed for her family’s approval – she ran away to follow her own path in Edo, the city we now call Tokyo.

Stranger in the Shogun’s City is a rare, captivating portrait of one woman as she endeavours to recreate herself and her life, and provides a window into the drama and excitement of Japan at a pivotal moment in history
