Hojize city 2

Hojize district

The Hojize district was the inland entry for the Outer City of Otosan Uchi and surrounded the Hinjaku district. It was a rich district, with many merchant quarters. By Imperial Decree its appearance must be stunning, as travelers entering the Imperial City first seen this district. [1] It was also known as the Rich Crescent district, because of the unusual shape it took as it cut off its subsidiary, the Eta's Island. [2]

Divided Edit

The Rich Crescent and the Eta's Island districts were originally one, but in the 2nd century a Lion governor split the district in two, to separate the rich part from the eta. [2]

Scorpion Coup Edit

In 1123 during the Scorpion Coup the Hojize district was not taken by the Scorpion in the first days of assault. [3] The Scorpion set the Toyotomi district in flames to flush Lion resistant cells out, and the fire spread, engulfing many heimin homes across the Meiyoko, and Hojize districts. [4] During the fourth day it was occupied by the united forces of the Clans and Hida Kisada himself. [5] Resistance cells were destroyed on the fifth day. [6]

After the Coup Edit

The governor Mirumoto Hojize died of a heart-attack in the last days of the Coup, and eventually the district was merged with the Hinjaku district, under the command of Hojize's cousin, Mirumoto Hinjaku. Hinjaku retained the name "Hojize" for the newly combined district, in honor of his fallen cousin. He dedicated his resources to establishing several temples, shrines, torii arches, and other holy sites within the Hojize district. [7]

Notable Locations Edit

The Crescent was the wealthiest district of the Toshisoto and its Governors were responsible for creating the first impression of every overland traveler into the Father's Home. The streets were lined with manicured gardens and trees, while cultivated waterways and ponds dotted the landscape. The district controlled more than half the River of the Sun traffic into Otosan Uchi. [2]
