While the U.S. State Department is returning a valuable samurai sword to its rightful owner, a Japanese prince, the sword is stolen by a group of assailants. To avoid damaging U.S.-Japan relations, Jim and Artie are assigned to locate the sword and return it to the prince before he commits hari-kari. After a series of various encounters with those after the sword, Jim faces the villain in a dramatic sword fight.
Upon arrival in San Francisco to meet with Prince Shinosuke of Japan, West and Gordon are attacked by horsemen wearing Japanese armor. At nearly the same time the valuable Sword of Kuniyoshi, due to be returned to Japan, is stolen from the Japanese delegation; they blame America for the theft and the Prince states that if the sword is not recovered before he leaves the next day, he will be forced to commit seppuku. On top of that, restoring the sword is important to strengthening the U. S.-friendly Emperor's power in Japan. West and Gordon are tasked with retrieving the weapon.
