What is "Yami No Bu"?
It was a ninja fighter group for the Tokugawa Shogunate. The Tokugawa Shogunate had two large-scale ninja fighter groups. One was "Oniwabanshu." The other was "Yami No Bu." "Oniwabanshu" mainly dealt with the eastern Japan. On the other hand, "Yami No Bu" mainly covered the western Japan.
In the end of the Tokugawa Shogunate, Mr. Battousai Himura (Kenshin) killed many swordsmen of the Tokugawa Shogunate. Therefore "Yami No Bu" sought his life.
