Gisei province

Gisei province (Ik1)

The Gisei province (Ik1) was the northwestern Ikoma province. It was bordered in the east by the Eiyu (Ik2) and the Ikota provinces (Ik4), in the southwest by the Shiranai province (Ik3), being enveloped in the north by the Unicorn lands. Notable location within the province was Toshi no Meiyo Gisei. [1]

Name Edit

The province was named for Toshi no Meiyo Gisei, a city which took its name from the lesson of the strength of honor made by Ikoma Arimi. She was a samurai-ko who vowed to commit seppuku to prove her loyalty, when his lord Ikoma Masahiro discovered Arimi had a lover. The daimyo accepted, but he handed her a wooden sword to perform the act. She took the sword and performed the act despite the grave insult, and a shrine was erected in her memory. [2]
