Seppun Palace (Otosan Uchi) Layout

Seppun Palace Layout

The Seppun Palace was located in the Forbidden City hidden behind the Imperial Palace. Its size was reduced in the 11th century, when a courtier misidentified it as the Imperial Palace. [1]

Appearance Edit

The structure remained mostly behind the Forbidden City wall, and its first floor was open to visitors. It housed all non-Seppun residents, with public libraries, gardens and a small dojo. The centerpiece of their atrium was a statue of Hantei XIX, given to the Seppun by his father just before the young boy's coronation. The upper floorswere closed to all but family members, containing living quarters, servants' domiciles, personal courts, and the restricted family histories. [1]
