“Learning from History, Japan’s Power in Investing into the Future”
The time is late Edo Era, feudal Japan.
Ouĭ is the daughter of the great artist Katsushika Hokusai.
Like her father whose art leaves a great mark in the world influencing the likes of Monet and Van Gogh, she too possesses great talent and skill for depicting the ŭkĭyoĕ.
Ouĭ is on a sketching trip up north in the Oga peninsula when she meets a local villager and hears about the recent appearance of a hideous onĭ called the “Nămăhăgĕ“.
The creature has inhabited itself in the surrounding mountains and has been raiding the village ever since.
