The Era of the Heavenly Empress
Palace of Loyal Servants
Attached to the Fukuharashi Damiyo’s Palace, this builing houses the servants of the Damiyo. During Ikoma Benjiro’s rule, the building was luxurious, and the home to the excesses of the maho and those who would sell their honour to him.
When Akodo Hoshi took over in 1170, he converted it into more of a barracks. The first floor has the ji-samuria and the lower ranking soldiers sharing rooms. On the second and third floor, the higher ranking and trusted servants have their quarters. Currently, Kitsu Kosho lives here, and Kitsu Diaki keeps a room here, even though he spends more time with Matsu Kara’s parents. Kara also has quarters here, although she is generally in the field.
Like the Palace of Honoured Guests, this house is connected to the Damiyo’s palace on the first and basement floors. It’s located on the eastern side of the compound.
