Land of Wa or Wa no Kuni is one of the worlds that are participating in The Game. It's based on Japanese legends, folktales, history and literature. It is named after the ancient name of Japan.

The World Representative of Land of Wa is Yoritomo.

The exiled soul of Land of Wa was Yoshitsune.

Overview

The Land of Wa is populated by people of various races such as humans, beastmen , and oni . In this world, non-human beings are feared by the majority of humans. Festering prejudice has lead to countless skirmishes and wars between the two factions. Love and marriage between different races is met with disdain, and any children born from such a union are despised.

Eventually, Toji's ancestors, born of human and oni, fled through the Land of Wa's Gate to the world of Tokyo. Therein, they reached an agreement with the locals: in exchange for staying in Tokyo, they were to dispose of any oni and other non-human beings that had followed them there.

    • Moritaka, Tadatomo, Yasuyori, Tanetomo, Masanori and Yoshito are members of the Hakkenshi (Eight Canine Warriors), which feature prominently in the epic novel Nansō Satomi Hakkenden. Shino is their spiritual father whose soul was shattered into eight virtues to be separately embodied by each Hakkenshi.
    • Zao and Akiha Gongen are gongen, the protectors or essences of a particular place in Japan, most commonly a mountain. They are fierce figures, martially attired, and are called upon in times of war and trouble.
    • Yoshitsune, Yoritomo, Oniwaka (Benkei), Musashi, and Yukimura are based on historical figures of the same name.

>>11713 Gotta prioritize glorious nippon culture I guess. Many other japanese games centered around world mythologies tend to have a little bias toward their own mythology, likely because that's what they're the most familiar with.

Nothing special though; if LW were Western European, you could bet that they would prioritize Greek/Roman and Christian myths.
