Information
Location Somewhere within Mugenri

The Netherworld (冥界, Meikai, lit. "Realm of the Dead") is supposedly the land where ghosts and souls reside after death. The location was first revealed in the second interview, probably based on the Netherworld from the Touhou Project.

General Information[edit]

The Netherworld is a part of Mugenri rather than separated from it.[1] Save for a few exceptions, one's soul will get led to the Netherworld to be judged for 49 days, where after receiving its due punishment, shall proceed to its next life via reincarnation.[2]

It is possible that the Netherworld is in fact the Spirit World (霊界, Reikai) mentioned in Taira no Chouki's official profile from Brilliant Pagoda or Haze Castle. The Spirit World is ruled over by a master, who processes and deals with the souls of the dead.
