Tree of the Omoikane
It also known as the Great Tree, the Tree of Knowledge, or the Voice of Life. Much of it's secrets are held by the Omoikane itself. Both the name of the tree and the title of the leader of the land, the Omoikane tree is often considered sapient and to be regarded as a person itself. Many visitors comment about how they sense the emotions of the tree and it's like or dislike for them.
Purpose / Function
Given the number of rooms the tree is reported to have in it's trunk, branches and roots, it is clear that some extra dimensional spaces are somehow mingled within the building.
This giant tree ascends to the height of skyscrapers. It is also wide almost as if there are more than a dozen giant trunks forming the base of the tree. The area under it's massive canopy is dedicated to gardens and outside rooms, with the rest of the city outside that canopy. Interior rooms are generally furnished with ornate wooden furniture and colored plasters. Paneling is commonly used to divide larger spaces. Light and air circulation is provided by glow globes and slight breezes which receive their power from the Omoikane itself. Most rooms are not divided by doors but by curtains.
First planted well over two thousand years ago around the end of the Andon Alliance, the Great Tree became the capitol of the region at the beginning of the Empire of Minam nearly four centuries ago. The master of the building called herself the Omoikane and took over the local governance at the time. Since then a new master has been raised to the position of Omoikane periodically. The current master is said to be over 100 years old, looks barely middle aged and claims title of the 8th Omoikane.
