Shiro Gisu was the holding which the Asako family prefered to use for any court functions. The castle overlooked the Shrine of the Ki-Rin and stood beside a crystal mountain lake in the midst of tall trees. The castle hosted several large functions each year, with events taking place on its immense balconies and courtyards. [1] Firebird Falls was nearby to the north. [2]

Building Edit

Inside, the palace was constructed with thick mahogany posts and richly painted rice-paper walls and sliding doors. Ornate carvings lined the outer walls and gates. The palace had been built for defense against the elements, not sieges or battles. [2]

Winter court Edit

Asako Kagetsu was a minor daimyo who hosted an Asako winter court at Gisu. [2] Otomo Yoroshiku, Hantei XXXVIII's niece, was kidnapped by a band of ronin led by a man named Niban while attending winter court at Shiro Gisu. [3]
