Sengoku Horizon

Look towards the Horizon

The Warring States Period: Fierce warlords fought for control of Japan, and many would perish. When a warrior falls, where does the passion they once held go? Possibly into something dear such as a favorite weapon or heirloom. These heirlooms have been labeled as “relics”, and those that carry them are labeled as “Scions." Recently more and more of these special relics have been activating, signaling the start of a great change as ancient power meets the modern world!

Now For The Local News, 11/01/2017 The dust has cleared after a fierce clash against the rebel Ikko Ikki monks. Now, as a tense period of calm spread over the island nation of Japan the students of Edo Bugei must figure out how to proceed in life after experience such intense conflicts and such deep loss.

The train smoothly sailed down the railways passing the country side westbound from Edo. The country slowly turned into orange and reddish hues as the fall ended and gradually started showing signs of frost and light snowfall around the mountainous areas. The country gained its rustic charms that seemed to have made the environment as eye catching as it could be. The far off trees slowly went by in a scrolling scenery while the students within the cabin were as warm as they could be and dressed to be. Today was when they all embarked away from Edo for Kaga.

They all were informed to gather at the station mid-morning for light breakfast samples by whatever means each person felt. From there it was aboard the train. Their first stop would be near the outer edges of Kaga's boarders to a bridge park. A short bus ride would take them to the starting point of Ayatorihashi.

The red bridge stood out but didn't look so bulky and out of place with beams that crossed in triangular ways like a game of cat's cradle. A local tea house rests nearby for viewing of the river under the shade of red parasols to designate viewing terrace areas. Also nearby was some local onsen such as the Yamanaka Onsen but due to their travel party size, and stopping here early in the day, wouldn't grant them much time or reservations for a stay. Another location was put in mind.

After disembarking the bus, Suishoku cleared her throat nervously as she explained to their group of why they weren't exactly hearing straight to the castle town but instead opted to take a detour.

"First, I'd like to thank everyone for having the time to come with us. Although it will be for a short time, we hope to show as much as we can of our home Kaga in thanks for defending her and being our friends," Suishoku opened up donning a long light tan winter coat that reached to her knees covering warm leggings and basic ankle boots. At her side was her school duffel bag as her usual traveling 'purse' once all the school clutter was gutted out of it. "This is a location Yumiko here, your co-trip adviser, highly recommended. If you don't mind adding expressing your thoughts as well," she motioned to Yumiko as if handing an invisible microphone to the girl. This area was a highly recommended place that Suishoku wished to honor as well as leaving it for them to share their reasoning in a far more poetic fashion than Suishoku could muster on the spot.

Now, to be fair, getting up had always been umm...problematic, at times, for Roshi Bento. If he doesn't wanna get up, he's unreachable, even if you feed him his favorite coffee-milk and a ton of sugar. Such is the life of one who overexerts himself in the name of art. That said, he had managed to get up in time and get here in a...zombie-like daze. The 24/7 shop that was mentioned had received his business in the form of him muttering "Brains..." at them, by way of conversation and inquiry.

It had taken effort.

But Roshi was here, and he had made it onto the train on time, because he liked where he was going and what he was doing once he got there. the only question that remained was this: Roshi Bento was eating out of a bento box. Was this considered a form of canniballism? He wasn't awake enough to consider the connotations right now. He was just getting energy into the furnace that was his stomach so he could make his brain work. 'Brains', you see? Brains...

This wasn't his first rodeo train trip.

It wasn't even his first trip with Suishoku, but on both counts, this was going to be a helluva lot more pleasant for the both of them. First, they were going to her hometown, and second...no Fish Mafia. That little debacle was something the two of them had hopefully gotten over, as it was both dangerous and ridiculous in nature. Anyway...they had a calm and relaxing train ride, then transferred to a bus, and finally...they were here.

Where?

Here.

That doesn't help.

Ayatorihashi. Read the sign, dammit.

*Sigh*

Moving on! The reason they weren't going directly into the heart of Kaga Prefecture was because Suishoku wanted to show it off a little. Roshi was a natural sight-seer by heart. He had a camera, even. Like any young Japanese person would be without one! This whole thing had been organized by both Suishoku AND Yumiko, and appearently it was the latter's idea to come here. The young poet was also known to Roshi, a kinder soul who had a true mastery of words. He waited to hear what Yumiko had to say.

Today was the day. It seemed like an age since the original invites had gone out and truth be told with everything that was going on Mirai had almost forgotten it was even taking place. But after the latest update message, Mirai was pumped for it. A bit of a trip was exciting enough but doubly so in this case because it wasn’t tied to anything the school was doing - it was just some friends out doing things on their own, and that felt more adventurous to Mirai.

She made sure to dress warmly for the trip. She wasn’t sure exactly how cold it would be in Kaga and didn’t want to risk not bringing enough to keep her warm. She could always remove a layer or two later if she needed to, anyway. She also had a backpack with her with a few odds and ends for the journey, as well as some extra space in case she needed it to carry anything.

Mirai left for the station a little earlier than she needed to leave spare time to get something for breakfast along the way. Preparing her own breakfast before she left would have meant she would need to rise even earlier; in theory, Mirai wasn’t necessarily against that but she'd been feeling pretty tired lately and something that would let her sleep in just a few moments longer wasn’t going to be complained about.

It was a train ride - it felt like Mirai had been on a few of those lately - and then a bus ride, and then they disembarked, at some point of interest or other. It seemed like a fairly pretty place they’d stopped at, what with that elegant red bridge and the lovely scenery.

Mirai looked at Yumiko as Suishoku introduced her as the one who’d selected this place in particular to visit. It would be nice to hear what was special about this place in particular; Mirai didn’t know where they were precisely, and hearing a bit more about where they were and what they would be doing there would be nice.

At long last the planned trip to Kaga was on its way, with a good handful of Edo Bugei students en route via train. Eriko had been invited fairly early on in the planning process and hadn't heard much about its progress afterward. She too had wondered if it'd ever get off the ground. Then at last she'd gotten the notice that they were indeed going to go on the trip for rest and relaxation. Back home she would've recommended a nice mountain hike or a local onsen for that sort of purpose. Maybe they'd have something just as nice here - she was just happy to have been invited along.

It had taken a little bit of time to convince herself it was okay to go. Kenji had been hurt seriously during the last battles, but she had since seen him and learned that he was in stable condition. Convincing other people that it was safe for her to leave Edo took some doing as well. However once she'd pointed out that there were many students going, and that she as an Elite was capable of handling herself should trouble arise, they'd relented. Her packing for the trip had mirrored what she'd have done for a vacation-like trip back home. Clothes that were both comfortable and durable took precedence. A few other things like a pillow, various toiletries and a couple of Heian period themed romance novels for entertainment had been packed away as well.

Not far from the at times sleeping Eriko had sat a student who was incredibly anxious about this whole thing. "Mikoto" had been invited by Suishoku, whom they considered a friend after hanging out on an otherwise bad day. At the time accepting the invitation had seemed like a no-brainer. Going together with a few people on a trip might lead to more friends! And some quality Mikoto time did sound like a nice break from classwork and other stresses. What the Todo student dressed in a girls' uniform with their hair down in all its girlishness hadn't realized was who was on the invite list.

Packing some clothes that Junko had lent them, as well as some goods that Inori had personally recommended, all had seemed well and good. Then on the train the shock of blonde hair confirmed that none other than the Azai heir was on this trip as well. Shinsuke's childhood friend.. who had no idea about this whole Mikoto business. It was too late to back out of the trip now, though! Stuck with exclusively girls' things in their bags and a friend of Shisnuke's on the trip, 'Mikoto' had to think fast. So it was that for most of the trip they'd worn a face mask like the ones people wore when they were/might become sick. Until a better solution presented itself, this was how they'd try to disguise themselves.

Once they'd arrived Suishoku asked Yumiko to have a few words. Eriko stood there in her track suit bearing the Yamana clan mon on the left breast, eagerly awaiting the beginning of the venture. Though she wasn't responsible for the planning of this trip she did at least feel compelled to offer leadership. If anyone needed help with something she'd be sure to take the initiative! 'Mikoto', meanwhile, stood near the back of the group with the mask off. Mostly because wearing it created a stiflingly stagnant environment through which to breathe in and out. Hopefully the Azai boy wouldn't spot them.. or there'd be a lot of awkward questions to be asked.
