The Moon (「月の國」?; Tsuki-no-kuni; lunar realm) is a location referenced in both Ōkami and Ōkamiden, origin of Nippon's many mysteries and conflicts. Little is known about the realm due to the demise of its people, the Moon Tribe in the Moon Tribe cataclysm.


While the true landscape of the Moon remains somewhat unknown, one can easily see that the rock suspended in the sky bears a striking golden color, not unlike the color of its people's hair. Many craters dot the surface, giving a small bit of insight as to what events have transpired there. From Nippon, no remnants of the former civilization can be seen, but it is also unknown as to whether ruins and rubble even remain, having been so long since the people of the moon disappeared.

Real world

The Moon of Nippon, while bearing much resemblance to the moon of our own world, goes on to serve a second purpose. In Shintō mythology, one of the few kami noted to be evil are Tsukuyomi, god of the moon. Angry at the food goddess Ukemochi for the manner in which she produced a meal for him, he murdered her in a rage, causing the goddess of the sun, Amaterasu, to refuse to share a place with him in the sky. This dispute eternally separated day into night, as it appears in the game. However, this goes even further as to suggest a more wicked nature for both the lunar realm itself and its people in the world of Ōkami.
