This province borders the lands of the Crane, although traffic through the mountains is difficult. Hotei Seido lies in the eastern edge of the province. The temple to Hotei is famous for its tranquil paintings and haiku, and it is one of the most popular retirement locations for the elders of the Scorpion clan. Many younger samurai come through the province seeking wisdom, advice, and artisitic inspiration from the monks in residence here.
