Chuuou province is known for being abundant in harvests and lumber. Due to high altitudes the village of Shimomura always feels the first frost in the southern Scorpion lands, and swift messengers carry the word to the rest of the province so the peasants may bring in the last of the harvest quickly. The province is also known for its wide roads and brightly lit tea houses where games of all sorts are used to pass foul weather.
