An enigmatic European vessel is discovered stranded in a neighboring fishing village. The English pilot, John Blackthorne, played by Cosmo Jarvis, arrives with information that could aid Lord Yoshii Toranaga, played by Hiroyuki Sanada, in leveling the power dynamic and destroying the powerful influence of Blackthorne’s adversaries, the Portuguese merchants and Jesuit priests.
A mystery Christian noblewoman, Toda Mariko (Anna Sawai), becomes the lynchpin of Toranaga and Blackthorne’s story once she becomes their translator. Her family has a shamed history.
Despite the volatile political climate, Mariko is compelled to serve her lord and find a balance between her newfound friendship with Blackthorne, her dedication to the religion that rescued her, and her responsibility to her father, who passed away.
The filming of James Clavell’s most popular book into the 10-episode Shōgun series was handled by Rachel Kondo & Justin Marks. In 1600, just as a century-defining civil war is breaking out in Japan, the events depicted in the series unfold.

However, when a ship runs aground in a neighboring fishing hamlet, the pilot, John Blackthorne, possesses information that might benefit Toranaga while harming the power of Blackthorne’s adversaries, the Portuguese merchants and Jesuit priests.
They can only converse with the help of Toda Mariko, a Christian noblewoman and translator who is the last of a shamed line. Mariko has to find a way to balance her new friendship with Blackthorne, her devotion to her religion, and her responsibility to her father, who died, as she serves Toranaga.
