From main

Mt. Kokureishin(black god mountain),is the mountain Takiko first appears on. Its peak is rocky and snowy, but the valley where a small town is located is wooded. Ancient stone pillars depicting Genbuform what may have once been a shrine, however monsters live under the snow and it is a place where criminals are executed by chaining the person to the pillar to be killed by said monsters. It is suspected that this is the same Mt. Koku that the priestess of Suzakuvisits in the future. Nuriko, a Suzaku warrior, loses his life here along with Ashitare.
