Please note: This article is about the Village of Promises. For other uses of the term, please see Mimura (disambiguation).


The Village of Promises was at the junction of two Imperial roads, near the foothills of the dangerous Sabishii Crags. The village had been formed merging three separate hamlets in the early 11th century. Each hamlet dedicated itself to providing the local lord with important trade goods and commodities. The eastern portion, Jingore, was dedicated to farming, the southern, Ubanoru, to trade, while to the northwest Omiatsu housed important nobility and tourists during the pleasant seasons. [1]

Jingore Edit

The hamlet was an important source of rice in the area, with fertile paddies, ensuring the gokenin enjoyed his daimyo's favor. It contained most of Mimura's houses, occupied by peasants and merchants. [2]

Other Places Edit

Omiatsu Edit

Omiatsu hosted the finest homes in Mimura, although many of them collapsed as effect of a flooding that happened when the Golden Koi River slipped its banks. The waters of the river turned into a marsh while the soil became soft and fertile. There was little dry land in this portion of the village. [2]

Other Places Edit

Ubanoru Edit

It started as a single inn and teahouse along a well-used road. Later, commerce in sake, lacquerware, and silk developed near the inn. The conglomeration of businesses eventually took shape into a hamlet. It wasn't long before a single ronin samurai served as protector of the hamlet. [2]
