Blade of the Immortal by Hiroaki Samura

In her quest across feudal Japan to avenge the murder of her parents, Rin has seen too much death and agony. When she befriends a young boy, she is horrified to discover that his father is one of the band of assassins who killed her family. Weary of blood, Rin now desires only an apology from the killer--a mask maker whose only desire is to keep his evil past from his son and who will take up the sword again to protect his secret.
