When the Shogunate orders the Yagyu Clan to rebuild Nikko Temple, a race to find an Urn worth 1,000,000 ryo gets underway. One of Japan's greatest legendary swordsmen, Tange Sazen, a victim of betrayal by his own clan is asked to help find and return it to the rightful owner, so they can try to learn the "Secret of the Urn" and use the money to save their clan... if they go bankrupt the Shogun will abolish the Yagyu and confiscate their land. Tange Sazen, the one-armed, one-eyed swordsman of Japanese legend is played brilliantly by the outstanding actor, NAKAMURA Kinnosuke, in one of his most perfect roles. As usual with a film directed by the great Master GOSHA Hideo, there are many plot twists and turns, and of course, plenty of powerful, bloody swordfights. This is the definitive version of the story. A true Jidai-Geki classic!
