Country Information
map
Country Background:

The Tea country is a peninsula marked by forests, mountains and fishing villages along its coast. The country itself may also include the O'uzu and Nagai Islands, but this is unconfirmed. It shares one border with the Fire Country, and maintains good ties with its ninja village because it maintains no ninja village of its own.

He disbanded the Wagarashi family and ordered Gokaroh to become a monk.

Events of Note

Todoroki Shrine Race:

The Modoroki Shrine on Nagi Island houses two crystal jewels, the "Tiger" and "Dragon." Many years ago it was said these jewels were offered to the Todoroki Shrine to quell the fierce storms, which ravaged the area. Over time the offering became a race, which was held every four years. At first only the jewels were offered. However approximately 9 years before the start of the series, the race changed to grant the winner power in the region. During this period the Wagarashi and Wasabi families grew into conflict over control of Degarashi Port. So an agreement was drawn up under the direction of the Daimyou to grant control to the family whose runner one the shrine race. In the race two runners will travel from Degarashi Port to Modoroki Shrine, and then take one of these two jewels to Todoroki Shrine on O'uzu Island.
