Plants and trees grow densely over Watatsumi Island. Their color is distinct from those in other islands.

Version 1.6 Special Program

Watatsumi Island (Japanese: 海祇わたつみじま Watatsumi-jima) is one of the islands of Inazuma. Among these islands, it is located on the opposite end of Narukami Island, where the Electro Archon resides. It was revealed in the Version 1.6 livestream.

The island is known for its dense foliage in breathtaking colors which are distinct from plants found elsewhere. The Sangonomiya Shrine is located at the center of this island, surrounded by a canopy of mountains and waterfalls. The distance from the capital city has allowed the residents of this island to develop its own unique culture and customs, and as such, many Inazumans outside of this island are well aware of the poor relationship they have with the Shogun and her government — there was a brutal war between the two long ago, but eventually ended with the Sangonomiya Clan pursuing peace.

The people of Watatsumi, under the leadership of the Sangonomiya Clan, worship the Watatsumi Omikami (Japanese: 海祇大御神) instead of the Raiden Shogun.[1]

As a result, the Vision Hunt Decree has driven hostility between the Sangonomiya Clan and the followers of the Raiden Shogun, particularly the Tenryou Commission, to an all-time high. The Sangonomiya Resistance has risen up in opposition to the decree, while the Tenryou Commission has established a base on the island to crush them.[1] Following the abolishment of the Vision Hunt Decree, negotiations are underway to reconnect Watatsumi with the rest of Inazuma under the Shogunate's rule.

Several altars with a blue stone as its centerpiece can be found throughout Watatsumi Island.

Investigate: "This ancient altar is overgrown with moss. It seems to have been a long time since it was tended by anyone..."

Trivia

  • In Japanese mythology, Watatsumi (Japanese: 海神わたつみ), or sometimes Wadatsumi, is the name of the tutelary deity (kami) of the sea, often equated with the dragon god Ryuujin. In some cases, the term may be used to refer to the sea itself.
  • Sangonomiya Shrine may be inspired by Ryuuguu-jou, the undersea palace of Ryuujin in Japanese folklore. One of the other names of Ryuuguu is "Watatsumi Palace" (Japanese: 海宮わたつみのみや Watatsumi no Miya).[2]
