Josh heads to the Far East of Japan after hearing of new evidence of the whereabouts of the missing and mystical Honjo Masamune sword. A priceless treasure that had been passed down for generations, the Honjo, like all ceremonial swords, was required to be handed over to the Allies at the end of WWII. Rather than being taken out of Japan after WWII, new evidence suggests that the sword is actually still in Japan. Josh begins his quest for the missing Masamune in Tokyo, Japan at the Mejiro Police Station where the sword was supposedly surrendered. The patriarch of the Tokugawa family, the last official owners of the sword before the War, provides Josh with background on the sword and its status as an important symbol for Japan.
