Ichikai is a small village in the north-western section of Crane territories, bordering both Lion and Imperial holdings. Daidoji Kohiro is the current daimyo of the village, and recently held a Festival of Ancestors to honor the Empire’s esteemed ancestors. He rules over the village with his wife, Asahina Mitsuo.
The village itself appears as a spoked wheel, with four spokes in cardinal directions and the daimyo’s home and modest estate at the center. The four quarters of the village each have different functions: the northwestern market district, northeastern artisan’s district, southwestern residential district, and southeastern ancestor’s district.
