Fantasy with a new twist - a Japanese empire occupies the west coast of North America when the Conquistadors arrive. The year is 1516… the sun has risen on the Shin Nippon, the new Japanese Empire. The Sun Goddess, Amaterasu watches over the Empire. The Land of the Sun Goddess follows the lives of Duke Isami Fujiwara, his wife WeNoNah and their son Ishe as they try to protect the empire while fighting demons from the Spirit World. Further down the western coast of North America, Montezuma and his nephew Cuauhtémoc strive to keep the Aztec nation from tumbling back into its bloody past. Unusual allies, the Shin Nippon and the Aztecs prepare for the onslaught of the Spanish conquerors. One of the conquistadors, Miguel Ruiz came to America seeking gold, but finds a different kind of treasure. The Land of the Sun Goddess has all the ingredients–mystery, legend, omens, romance, spirits — an amalgam of heroic warriors fighting earthly enemies and ethereal demons.
