Heian-Kyo

Capital of Tranquility and Peace

This planned city, a perfect grid of buildings radiating out from the Imperial Palace, houses the vast majority of the Imperial bureaucracy in serene greenery and evocative, luxurious structures. Outside of the city's limits, the rest of the inhabitants live in a style that has remained unchanged for hundreds of years.
