The wandering life of a ronin is often a lonely one, and Usagi has been on that path a long time. A temporary peace, staying with the merchant Endo and his daughter Hanaka, is interrupted by the deadly League of Assassins, setting Usagi back on the road, but with the uncomfortable sensation that he is being followed.

Book 23: Bridge Of Tears reprints Usagi Yojimbo issues 94 to 102 published by Dark Horse Comics. It includes milestone issue #100, set as a celebratory roast of Stan Sakai.

The introduction for this volume was written by Brian K. Vaughan.
