Plane Kamigawa

Jukai (Japanese: (じゅ) (かい) ; literally: "Sea of Trees") forest is a major green-aligned location on Kamigawa, an ancient forest composed mainly of huge cedar trees.[1] It is almost as large as all the surrounding territories combined.[2]

The forest is inhabited by the orochi (snakefolk), and humans: budoka and kannushi monks, and the border regions are a home of kitsune (fox-folk), with many villages built there. There are many kitsune villages along the northwestern forest, and larger ones in the south.[3] About a days walk from the edge of the forest, the terrain becomes hillier and the trees become larger. The orochi lands are located about a four days' walk into the forest.[4] Part of Jukai was destroyed during the soratami invasion during the events of Guardian: Saviors of Kamigawa.

The guardian dragon of Jukai is Jugan.
