    Default Isshu in Relation to the Real World

    So we now know that Isshu is based on the New York City area, but what real world areas are the locations in Black and White supposed to represent?
    Cities
    Hiun City-Lower Manhattan Confirmed
    Liberty Garden Island-Liberty Island
    Hodomoe City-Jersey City or Hoboken
    Raimon City-Broadway/Times Square
    *Gear Station-Grand Central Station
    Shippou City-Not sure may be Brooklyn or Queens
    Sanyou City-Not sure may be Brooklyn or Queens
    Karakusa Town-Unknown
    Kanoko Town-Possibly Brighton Beach or Manhattan Beach
    Fukiyose City-Newark or Teterboro Airport
    Sekka City-the city's myth bears a slight resemblance to the Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving
    Souryuu City-Unknown
    Kagome Town-Unknown
    Sanazami Town-Unknown
    Black City-Unknown
    Kanawa Town-Unknown, possibly a town in Upstate NY

    Bridges and other areas
    Sky Arrow Bridge-Brooklyn Bridge Confirmed
    Cylinder Bridge-George Washington Bridge
    Liberty Garden Island-Liberty Island
    Sanazami Bay-Jamaica Bay
    Wonder Bridge-Unknown but looks vaguely like the Alexander Hamilton Bridge, located where the Queensboro Bridge would be.
    Village Bridge-Unknown
    Hodomoe Drawridge-There is a car tunnel in Hodomoe City that may be a reference to the Lincoln Tunnel
    High Link-Central Park
    United Tower-United Nations(but on it's own island for some reason)

    Unlike the old regions, which seem to copy Japan's geography almost perfectly, Isshu looks like a very distorted version of it's real world counterpart.

    That's all I can think of for now.

    Basically you're showing us the references between towns/locations in Isshu region, and our real world?

    I'm pretty sure this could be placed in the maps thread...

    Yeah, this really could best be suited for the Maps thread. It's not an exact fit, but it's fairly close.
