Tonan no Tsubasa (10)


Large cities are essentially castle towns, with the castle compound (government offices) surrounded by the inner loop road, and the outer loop road accessible through twelve gates. Each gate is identified by a member of the Chinese zodiac: rat (子門), ox (丑門), tiger (寅門), hare (卯門), dragon (辰門), serpent (巳門), horse (午門), ram (未門), monkey (申門), rooster (酉門), dog (戌門), boar (亥門).

The Earth Gate (地門) in Ken is a noted exception.

Hi, on pg 98 near the top, the sentence "the theft of Hakuto hadn’t left with enough time to hire a proper guardian" is missing a 'her' I believe.

I hope it's ok that I'm posting these comments. Please tell me to stop if you want me to.

I can't wait for the Shouzan to really begin!
