Onigiri and the Real World.

Postby Riddras » 01 Apr 2018, 20:12

We know the world of Onigiri Online is a mix of historical Japan and its mythologies. Kyoto for example, is a real city which you can visit in Japan, and many of the characters are based on historical figures. But how much of it is real and how much of it is fantasy? Most, if not all players on US server are not Japanese so we may not necessarily be able to tell the difference.

This topic aims to share some of those information based on easily accessible stuff around the web. Hopefully we can enlighten ourselves and possibly further appreciate the work that went into creating this game’s contents. And who know, maybe we can organize an off kai or something in the future.

Everyone is welcomed to contribute any interesting bits. And on that note, I’ll start it off with this video on Nakasendo, the main quest where you have to make medicine:

Just watched the video and it's very nice! I never gave much thought about the places we go through in the game, I'd always focus on the characters who I knew were based on historical figures or legends.
I don't have any videos to share, sadly. I know a very good one but it's in portuguese so I don't think it will help much haha
Anyway I hope someone adds more stuff to this topic soon

That's ok, I'm glad someone else enjoys the videos as well.

Here's another one, this time on Izumo where you get a quest from Izumo Girl Mutsumi. It is the location of Izumo Taisha, the oldest Shinto Shrine in Japan:

There is also significance as to why our first Kaguya's magatama creation quest is in Izumo, as the video explains.

This time, in conjunction with the recent Gargoyle sisters update, we take a look at Sadoshima (Sado Island).

In game story-wise, you will come across it after reaching Eichigo. Most will relate to it as a cold and snowy place.

Let's take a look at the real Sadoshima and it's history, courtesy of NHK:
