Pale Oak Castle

Other than Kyuden Asako, Aoijiroi Oku Shiro is the most popular
court for visitors to the Phoenix lands, and the only other
one to have hosted an Emperor’s Winter Court. The castle
surrounds a grand white oak that grew over the grave of one
of the Hantei Emperors. He abandoned tradition and asked on
his deathbed to be buried at the site of his wife’s birth. The
castle was built, in part, to ensure the eternal defense of the
sacred tree. The bark of the oak is rumored to have tremendous
healing powers, and the few cuttings taken each season
are greatly coveted.
