Fushigi Yuugi Wiki

Nasaru Forest is a large wooded area in Hokkan. Lying east of Touran, it is protected by Taiitsukun who ensures that those who would seek to hurt others cannot enter.


The secret and deeply pious Odo Tribe lives within this ancient forest. Their village has been worked into the huge trunks and roots of the trees.

There are large areas where it has an especially strong spiritual presence, and religious ceremonies are held there. People looking to serve the Priestess of Genbu are able to enter.


The characteristically large trees have been theorized to be nanmu trees, which are native to China and South Asia. The large width of their trunks made their timber valuable for construction of boats, palaces, and other buildings. The wood itself has a unique resistance to decay that some believed to be spiritual.
