L5R - A new Beginning
Tsuma was a fishing town larger and more active than other rokugani villages. It lied along the Tangu River a few miles from the coast and had one small wharf. It was removed from the more heavily highways and with little to offer in the way of comforts for the odd visitor. Despite its small size, it boasted an unusual number of inns, sake houses, theaters, geisha houses, and other services to comfort and supply weary travelers. A bamboo forest surrounded the road to the town.
