Yama province

Yama province

The Yama province (Ma8) was the southern Lion province, in the Matsu territory. It extended in the south from the Spine of the World Mountains bordering the north eastern Scorpion Clan territory and the Beiden Pass, to the northern borders of the Crane Clan territory, being enveloped in the north with the Lion Azuma province borders (Ma6). Notable locations within the province included Shiro Matsu. [1]

Former name Edit

This province was formerly known as Hamana province, being the Lion samurai Ataka one of its governors. [2] This land initially gained the nickname “Yama” due to its proximity to the Spine of the World Mountains, and it eventually supplanted the original title. [3]

Ma7 must be Kaeru province, as L17 is Kaeru Toshi, so most probably Ma6 is Azuma province.--Oni no Pikachu (talk) 22:28, July 30, 2012 (UTC)
