LEFT EYE OF THE VALLEY fragments of a magic mirror in which the reflections of the fairy creatures of Japanese folklore youkai are captured. You will get acquainted with the traditional worldview of the Japanese, be surprised at the great variety of magical creatures that, according to the traditional picture of the world, live very close to people, and learn to talk about their appearance, and you won't notice how you will remember the Japanese hiragana alphabet.

RIGHT EYE OF THE VALLEY precious gems. You will learn to talk about what you love, and what is precious to you and vice versa – about what you do not like. The easiest way to do this is with the example of food and drink: everyone has their favourite and least favourite. Once you get comfortable with them, you'll create a personal list of words to talk about your likes and dislikes: dancing, cats, sketching, watching anime, and inventing characters. By talking about what you love, you will strengthen the skill of finding and choosing your own from everything that is in the world. And in the same location, since many food and drink names, as well as activities, are of foreign origin, you will learn the katakana alphabet, which is used in Japanese mainly to write words of foreign origin.

THE FIRE MOUTH OF THE VALLEY – is a place to assimilate the two learned alphabets and begin to master them confidently. The symbol of this location is flame: the energy of skillfulness. You will learn how to talk about who can do what, and immerse yourself in magical stories about how lake fairies slowly run across the surface of the water at dawn, how cute black dragons hunt deftly at night, and how little cave demons sleep quietly in their nests all autumn.
The best place to continue immersing yourself in the traditional vision of the world and start learning hieroglyphs is the Observatory!
We will start with hieroglyphs that describe the celestial bodies (Sun, Moon, stars) and elements: fire, water, earth, metal, and wood. You will practice writing and recognizing hieroglyphs, reading and writing short stories about the deities of the lunar seas and an astrologer's daily routine.

We are approaching the Human Village. On the verge of the world of spirits and the world of people is the House of Ancestors, where knowledge is stored about what a person is, what words people and members of a family/clan are called, and how human society works.
In this location, you will learn about the principles underlying the structure of Japanese society, and much will become clear to you. Also, this location opens a new big grammatical topic – polite speech, which is used to communicate with unfamiliar people.
From the House of Ancestors to your House, from the arrangement of public life to the arrangement of personal life. You will learn to talk about your daily routine and everything that pleases and comforts you inside it.
(we’ll draw the image soon, but for now, the house in the clouds ^^)
A weather station is a location for a subtle observation of celestial and terrestrial phenomena. You will learn to talk about the weather of the outer world and the weather of the heart, learn a bunch of new adjectives to describe the world, and understand the Japanese system of tastes.
(another tiny house in the clouds – we will draw it soon!)
Did you dream of living in a library as a child? We did. And we've created a Library that people would like to live in. Here you can find a dictionary of the language of rain and a collection of poetry of the lunar inhabitants, the walls in it are hung with maps of the starry sky and the rings of Saturn, and the boy Tom and the girl Fay dream of how they will be an engineer and an artist.
Two big topics you'll learn in the Library: the arrangement of objects and the incredible system of counting objects in Japanese.
While working on the music for the Temple location, composer Roman Reznik wrote about hope and light, divided equally among all creatures (listen below for audio). On the tablets in the temple of the magical world, it is written that everyone has the right to live according to their soul, as the heart tells them. And no one has the right to violence. Everyone has the right to be a person, and everyone has the right not to be afraid.
The Temple is a place to speak in Japanese about big do's and don'ts, rights, freedoms and how people can live together peacefully.
Location materials are inspired by the Constitution of Užupis. Thanks to its authors, the spirits of this place and everyone involved!
WE CONTINUE TO CREATE NEW LOCATIONS that you can discover more and more treasures of the Japanese language and culture and rejoice in your heart.
