Hello, my name is Brian and I have just a quick question.  I come to the community because the wiki isn't being very helpful and I can't find the answer on the WoWs website.  The port of Zipangu……..where is it exactly?  I know it's Japan, but where IN Japan? lol  Is it Yokosuka?  Yokohama?  Kure?  Osaka?  Kyoto?  I really have no idea and I am very curious.  Can anyone help me solve the riddle of...….Zipangu? lol  Thanks for any help anyone can provide. :)

Happy hunting,

Brian (bridder01)

I believe it's based loosely on the port town of Fuji, due south of Mt. Fuji:

The positions of the mountains and the overall shape of the port reflect this pretty closely

It's clearly a fictional port and designed to be entirely aesthetic, but Fuji, Shizuoka does match the most. We'd have to ask the art team in St. Petersberg for more solid info

It seems to be a fusion of Sasebo(the general shape of the port and the woody hills) and Yokosuka(the drydocks), with Mt. Fuji and Himeji Castle added to the background.

Thanks for the feedback guys!!  I really appreciate it!  Whether it's real of fictionalized, it still looks cool :)  

Happy hunting,
