The Shadow Above
Koutetsukan (The Iron Turtle City)
Koutetsukan or The Iron Turtle City, is a largely unremarkable city, with very few landmarks of any significance and little to keep in the memory of its few visitors. In fact, the only landmark to speak of in the city is the massive array of shipyards that dominate virtually every inch of its coastline. More ships are probably produced in Koutetsukan than in every other shipyard in the Empire combined – although there are certain ports in the southern Crab provinces that might challenge such a claim. The shipyards at Koutetsukan are responsible for the vast majority of ship production for the Mantis although there are a small number of other much less grandiose shipyards serving the clan. They also produce ships for the Crab, Phoenix, and Crane, which the Mantis sell to the intended clan for a very handsome profit.
This island is currently run by Kitsune Tsuchiro as provincial daimyo.
