The Unlost Woods (迷えずの森, Mayoezu no Mori) is a strange forest within Mugenri. It's called the "Unlost Woods" because people couldn't get lost in the forest, and thus they began calling it the "Unlost Woods". People who still know it as the "Lost Woods" are very few. The forest has areas of ground where the sun never shines, and trees literally move about, which leads all intruders away. It's the home for youkai slugs, such as Shou Amanomori and Kujiru Kesa.

General Information[edit]

The woods might be a homage to the Bamboo Forest of the Lost, because in the Bamboo Forest, you can easily get lost, whereas the Unlost Woods, it's the opposite. On two occasions, the woods has appeared as a stage 2 location, where the location of stage 1 is the Shrine Road; it can be presumed that the woods may not be located far from the road.

Sodden Decaying Garden[edit]

The Sodden Decaying Garden (潤い腐る庭, Uruoi Kusaru Niwa) is a dark garden with leafless trees within the Unlost Woods. Not much is known about this area at all. The word for soddening (潤い) could also translate to profitable, which could be a reference to Hibaru Kokutenshi's ability to make a profit, as they showed up in the forest in Stage 4 of Earthen Miraculous Sword.

Road of the Haniwa and Sukune Katano's House[edit]

The Road of the Haniwa (埴輪街道, Haniwa Kaidō) is a long path in the Unlost Woods that is lined with clay haniwa statues on both sides, the road leads to their creator's, Sukune's house (宿禰の家, Sukune no Ie), which is also located inside the woods.

Woods' Appearances[edit]

Earthen Miraculous Sword

The protagonist wanders around, trying to find the culprit of the cloudy weather. There, the hero encounters Shou Amanomori, who wants to avenge Jun Amanomiya for getting beating up by the player character. Shou attacks, but they were defeated.
The Sodden Decaying Garden is where the protagonists encounter Hibaru Kokutenshi on stage 4, who tried to force them into taking a loan from Gappori. They were defeated and the protagonists moved on.

Brilliant Pagoda or Haze Castle

The woods appear on stage 2 of the Haze (left) route of Brilliant Pagoda or Haze Castle. Taking the Neutral route (middle) from this stage will keep you in the woods at later stages, but you can go different ways for new locations depending on which route you take. As such, if you go left onto the haze route, you'll go to the Outpost Base Camp, but if you go right onto the Brilliant route, you'll end up back on the Shrine Road.
