Higashimon (The Eastern Gate)

This is the eastern region of Yokaisekai, ruled over by the daimyo Seiryu, the azure dragon. It has many flowering trees in it's forests and fields as well as the great waterfall of Seiryutaki, where Lord Seiryu lives in his azure palace. This region contains the entrance of the Higashimon (eastern gate) though traffic through the gate often falls under Lord Suzaku's scrutiny and is actually controlled from afar by the Morrigan.

Higashimon
(The Eastern Gate)

The Higashimon, or the Eastern Gate, is the remnants of the old doorway to the outer world on old Locura. Originally once you passed the iron gate it lead through a maze of tunnels full of traps in the Crater Volcano, on the continent of North Vulpes, to a cliff face overlooking the Crater Desert. Since the World Split the Higashimon now opens into a complex maze in the volcano Daikazanyama that ends in a wooded cliff face overlooking the stretch of ocean between Yokaisekai and the Pokemon Islands. It is the eastern most of the only two entrances to Yokaisekai. The gate itself lies in the Higashichiku region.

From the Yokaisekai side of the gate it is a massive black iron door set far back in a large natural cave. On the other side of the door there is a room, the walls and floor of which are smooth black lava formations and volcanic glass. It is well lit by twisted iron torches that burst into flame as you enter the room from either the maze or the iron door. At one end of the room, flanking the iron door, are two huge, and rather ugly, stone statues of grotesquely well-muscled oni with horns, fangs, claws, and bulging eyes. The black iron door emanates an aura of power, and used to open to a yokai’s touch, only into Yokaiseki of course, but now requires special magic to open either way (usually in the form of a pass from Morrigan, or by Morrigan herself). The other end of the room leads to the tunnel maze, which is not lighted at all, and which no longer contains magical traps, only the natural dangers of an occasional falling rock, collapsing side tunnel, or getting forever lost. This is the least used gate of the two that give entry to Yokaisekai.
