Mura Higashi Chushin

Higashi Chushin
Higashi Chushin is one of the four "hub villages" that surround the old Imperial capital of Otosan Uchi.  Since the destruction of the capital in 1159 by the forces of Daigotsu and the Shadowlands, all of the hub villages have suffered a decline in both their fortunes and their standing,  but the East Hub Village has been slightly more active than either Mura Nishi Chushin or Mura Minami Chushin because of  its proximity to Kyuden Seppun to the north, and because of its port.  

While the Tortoise Clan still retains nominal control of Higashi Chushin, it has moved most of its operations to Kita Chushin leaving various allied ronin factions such as the East Wind, holding much of the control and power in the village.
