Flame Village - Kasai Settlement

Residence Type






Daigaku no Sakkaku is named literally the University of Illusions. Akane has big dreams to create a full fledged university that will grow and transform with time, become more beautiful inside and out, and involving an increased collection of research materials, texts, and study halls. An abandoned building was open and in disrepair, located in the Kasai settlement. The building has four floors, two of which are underground levels, and a small open yard encircling the building, layered with tall grass and dead flowers. From outside, the building has many windows with twisted elegant black steel bars, a black steel rail fence around the outer edge, adorned with black steel leaf shaped decorations. The building is a sun bleached blue color and the shutters are dark grey, giving the building the appearance of a ghost-house. It was once used as the main out source site for an apothecary and wine merchant. It was forsaken because of the distance from Hikaen Village, the merchant deciding to sell it to Akane after months of neglect. The building needs more work still, some clean up, fresh paint, and an active landscaper, but Akane has the tenacity and capacity to transform this building into the complex of her dreams. Akane is versatile and will use what space she has until it is fully restored.


All Around Garden

Originally an ugly plot of green encircling the building, the area has been cleared and refreshed to be appealing to the eye. The front of the building has a healthy flower garden tended to by locally paid landscapers, using a floral array of pink and purple orchids, yellow mamane buds, and small green bushes with shiny leaves and midnight blue berries. A small alluring green hedge forms a U shape around the back and sides of the building and is about three feet tall. On either sides of the building there are three benches and small marble statuettes from local artists whose unique designs are interpreted in widely different ways. The back side of the yard is larger, 20m in length. There are small footpaths and a wide flat koi pond with various stones and plants, for optimal cooling of the water. A large tropical palm tree besides the koi pond and a few others around the area, have created relaxing shade where students can sit on small benches and reflect, meditate, and consider ideas for further research. Besides the koi pond and the large palm trees, most of the back area is a designated area for growing specific plants for use in toxin and antidote research and for the personal creation of such items at the Daigaku no Sakkaku.

Second Level

The second floor of the Daigaku, is accessed through a stair case inside of the library which wraps and pivots into a black-iron spiral staircase, adorned with the same black-iron leaves as the outdoor fencing of the front of the building. The staircase was narrow and classy, not taking away from the library's look and positioned beside the large rounded tower shape of the room, the enormous outward facing windows lighting up the staircase. At the top of the staircase, the large open windows and rounded tower shape continue, opening into a large circular room. This room appears to be an open study area with mats and pillows on the hardwood floor. Connecting to this circular open area is a large square lobby like area, akin to the ground floor structure. This area has 3 large office rooms on the left side for the senseis to share and utilize, containing desks, shelving units and bookcases, as well as comfortable leather chairs. On the right side there are 6 rooms, 3 small classrooms and 3 small practical lab rooms. All of the rooms have large tables, with leather chairs in the classrooms and plain wooden stools in the lab rooms. The classrooms all have standing pots of orchids as decor, while the lab rooms all have open windows facing the side or front walls of the building. Connecting to the front side of the building and the lobby like area in the back and the front are small open porches with large windows for letting air into the second floor and for relaxing in-between classes.

First Level / Ground Level

The first floor of the complex is the ground floor. There are four entry ways. Two sliding glass doors with classic bamboo frames are in the back for easy entering and exiting during the day. There is a small black steel door from the outside ground level which leads directly from the side of the complex down into the first sub level for emergency use. The fourth door is the large two door darkwood entry way that leads into the main center area. Inside, the floor is made of polished hardwood, cleaned regularly and replacing the old splintery floorboards of the time when the room was meant to be a large bar area for wine samplings. The large main room connects to several doors in the area, including the one of the two bamboo framed glass doors in the rear, for easy access to fresh air and relaxation in the garden during lunch. A large desk on the right side is maintained by two working secretaries at all times, to help guide visitors as well as new students through the building. The secretaries love various natural scents and so they consistently burn various incenses and oils as they see fit, filling the entire first floor with tantalizing, not over powering, scents. On the left there is an open entry way leading into a large library of texts for student and staff use. Large outwards facing windows let in natural light and encourage students to study at one of the six large flat wooden tables or in a small study corner with pillow like mats for comfortable sitting. On the right there are two separate sliding doors in traditional bamboo frame style with a large glass window in each. Each door opens to a small lecture hall with three small step-levels with a row of desks on each level and stools for sitting. Each lecture hall has a large chalkboard and podium with a long wooden table on the lowest floor for lecturers. There is an emergency exit to the back gardens connected to one of the rooms.

First Sub Level

The first sub level, connected to the ground floor above through the spiral stairs located in the library, descend at first into an area which is immediately chilled. Both sub levels are cold because of their location underground but also for the desire to make control possible within the genjutsu research and medical research lab areas. The far right half of the room is particularly divided from the rest. The division is a clear airtight room with regulated oxygen and controlled temperature (for being able to control and practice specific genjutsu triggers in a controlled environment). The area is within the airtight glass is wide open with fold up chairs, fold up tables, other wise it is vacant and void of other sensations so that the user of the room can control the environment. The half is large enough to hold up to twenty people comfortably, so if careful, multiple people can use the room at once. Besides the stair case to the library above, there is a small set of twisted wooden stairs to enter the floor below. And across the half used by genjutsu practitioners and students alike is a chemical research lab area fitted with several large flat tables and many shelves for storing medical equipment. This area is where students practice with staff the use and visualization of consequences of toxins, poisons and other drugs using collected samples of skin and muscle grafts as well as small rodents. Though controversial, it is required that students testing with the poisons not be allowed to do so without administering the antidote to the animal to reduce suffering wherever possible. The other required addition is the use of genjutsu on the rodents themselves to prevent them from realizing their bodies are undergoing dangerous and painful experiments. The final required portion of using the poison and toxin study lab is that the rodents may not be used more than twice for any test and must subsequently, after antidote administration, be taken to the forest and released into the wild. Students may not be down on this level and using such equipment without a higher level student or staff with them. The partner system is required for both sub-levels and is posted on several signs throughout the area. The shelves in the area contain both antidotes and toxins for study, obtained from the larger collection on the next sub-level. Beside one of the tables is an emergency exit steel door, one that allows for the opening in an outwards facing direction and through a small set of stairs places them outside of the building.

Second Sub Level

The deepest sub level of the Daigaku no Sakkaku, is divided into two halves. One half is dedicated to shelving and storing medical equipment in both isolated and sterile containers. Amongst the shelving for medical supplies, there are shelves of vials, jars, and small containers of home-grown or natively collected items (including pure sulfuric acid hand made from the sulfurous gas of the volcanoes of Yougan Tochi, and various pastes, powders, dried and liquid herbs and toxic materials. In the same half of the room, there is a self contained underground green house for growing and caring for specific herbs and plants as well as small arachnids, small reptiles, and small amphibians (all producing some type of toxin, venom, etc) for research and cultivation. A small plain staircase leads to the first sub level beside the green house room. The other half of the room is particularly divided from the rest. The division is a clear airtight room with regulated oxygen and controlled temperature (for being able to control and practice specific genjutsu triggers in a controlled environment). The area is within the airtight glass is wide open with fold up chairs, fold up tables, other wise it is vacant and void of other sensations so that the user of the room can control the environment. The half is large enough to hold up to twenty people comfortably, so if careful, multiple people can use the room at once. Students may not be down on this level and using such equipment without a higher level student or staff with them. The partner system is required for both sub-levels and is posted on several signs throughout the area.

School Courses

Students must show either interest in medical or genjutsu fields and be willing to take a series of four courses with various hired jounin and professors on the subject of the mind and chakra systems. The goal is to develop a strong foundation during the first six months for understanding the basis of chakra systems, chakra points, as well as the effects of genjutsu on the mind and nervous systems in the body. Intensive studying of the brain is required including lab work and in the field training. Students must be fully prepared and open to practicing genjutsu on other students as well as being used as test subjects for their peers own genjutsu. No genjutsu is allowed to permit permanent or significant mental damage without written consent and presence of both an active genjutsu user of one rank higher than the users and a medical shinobi specialist. To practice jutsu which is harmful to a peer without the presence of the professionals or without written consent of the parties in question results in an interview with Akane Higurashi which could end in immediate expulsion. After the initial course work is completed, students may work with staff to complete individual research or group research projects surrounding the areas of genjutsu, neurology, and the use of various mind or body altering substances, which include poisons, toxins, venoms, hallucinogens, and antidotes. Students are expected to either pay or obtain their own resources for research, but there are many rooms for available studies on the second floor for free use and storage for students specifically.
