Okay, here is a map I have made of Mura-cho. I didn't label everything because its still early in the game, and you won't know where or what half the stuff is... and I don't feel like labeling every single house.

I hope it will be enough to give the info that people need. The top of the map is North.

I'm guessing that a map like this would be available to the PCs. maybe not labeled. BTW what is up with the backwards nazis.

Not backwards Nazi symbols, but Shrine symbols of power. I've heard that its Hitler who liked the Shrine symbol, so he reversed it and used it for his SS. The japanese version has been around forever and a day, but gets a bad rap due to Hitler.

Yeah, you can get a map with the packet you get from the Town hall. they figure you would need it to get around (to work and back...)

There is an interesting read on the wiki page.

Okay, so the point is that its not Nazi, but Buddhist in this sense. Its often a symbol used to denote the location of a buddhist temple where the double TT is for Shinto. Got it. Thanks for hte Link.

I knew it had nothing to to do with the Nazis, I was just pulling your chain. ha ha. But seriously, Adam would likely recognize the symbol, being that it shows up in many different cultures around the world with basically the same meaning. Being a Silent Strider he would likely have some more inside info on it, as far as spiritual symbols go.

No biggie. Everyone says the same thing when they come to Japan or see Japanese stuff. It was a good link though. especially that its everywhere in the world in some form or another.
