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.

Description

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 to be delivered in her cave. 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.

This place is visited again as the settlement is attacked by the younger Shirohebi, who received some power from Black Alice and decides to take control of the village by putting her sister to sleep.

When Luka arrives, he sees a Nekomata and Goblin Girl surrounded by Chimera Beasts. As they're almost overwhelmed, Gnome gives the latter a power boost that temporarily transforms her and allow her to hold her own against the waves of monsters. In the meantime, Luka finds a Miko Lamia who almost sucked dry several villagers under the pretene of protecting them. After dealing with her, he fights a Kejourou that says that only snake monsters should be worshipped. He finally fights Shirohebi herself and beats her back, and her sister steps in afterward with the plan to discipline her.

This place is seen again when Luka storms Heaven, as Yamata No Orochi steps in to help defend the village against angels and other chimeras.

Lastly, Luka can revisit the place during the epilogue, during which Tamamo No Mae tempts him to be her lover.
