Shokudama is set in late Edo, the time when our contemporary food culture first began to develop. In the city full of lively merchants and townsmen, Himura Tamanosuke, a freelance guardian with a sharp sword skill, live frivolously with his two younger siblings. One night, he was visited by the “Souls of Food” demanding to help them return to Nirvana since his dead Father couldn’t. Tamanosuke couldn't just sleep on the "nightmare" since he was threatened by death curse... But how exactly should he help 108 food souls!
