The Naga province is considered the most artistic of all the empire and many of the empire's great painters and writers come from this idyllic region. They are known throughout the empire and beyond for their trained courtiers and artisans. The Naga province is probably the prettiest one naturally, with many of the traditional cherry groves being here. The mountains to the south and east are stunning visually, and somehow the fact that a violent aggressor lies the other side of them just adds to their majesty. Naga samurai are arguably the finest duellists in Honshu. They are trained heavily in Iaijutsu (fast-draw technique) where the sword is drawn and a killing blow is struck with one, very fast movement.
