Location of Yamatai Village on map of Noah region.

Yamatai Village (ヤマタイ村 Yamatai Mura) is a settlement in the far east of the Noah region in Monster Girl Quest. Its geographical location and general culture are reminiscent of feudal Japan. Due to this it is quite disconnected from the rest of the world, resulting in its inhabitants having an unusual outlook on life.


Being somewhat set apart from the rest of the world, the population of the village don’t seem to know about the Ilias faith. Instead, their religion is more based on the folklore which surrounds the monsters. Certain kinds of monsters are worshipped to the extent that the humans in the village have built shrines for them. These monsters are referred to by their animal basis rather than their species name: kitsune being named "Mighty Fox", lamias as "Mighty Snake" and Nekomatas as "Mighty Cat". The worship is so ingrained that such monsters are always referred to formally and with the utmost respect. Even showing an inch of malice towards any of these monsters is frowned upon and is considered to be folly.

Generally the shrines house their respective monsters if they are present. Tamamo of the Four Heavenly Knights also hails from this village, and she likes frequenting the Fox Shrine to bask in the attention and be treated to her beloved fried tofu.

Other folklore revolves around monsters such as the Yuki-onna and the dreaded Yamata no Orochi, the latter demanding a sacrifice every year. Towards the end of Luka's stay in the village, Yamata no Orochi is sealed and taken care of in the Snake Shrine to reflect on her actions. A local considers setting up a shrine for Ilias, albeit under the mistaken name of Ill-Ass.
