About this Group
Welcome to Gensōkyō! 幻想郷へようこそ！ Gensōkyō was originally a desolate, haunted region. The youkai that lived there began to terrorize the surrounding lands, so heroic humans were rallied to exorcise and exterminate them. The battles between humans and youkai continued until Meiji 17 (Kōki 2554, Mainland 4581, 1884 A.D.), when Gensōkyō was mysteriously sealed off from the increasingly scientific and skeptical world with the creation of the Hakurei Border. There has been little contact between the realms ever since. Today, the main gateway between Gensōkyō and the outside world is the Hakurei Shrine, which stands in isolation along the border of distant mountains in the Far East.
