The Youkai Mountain is an important landmark in Gensokyo and home to several youkai, as per its name. The mountain covers several smaller locations such as the Giant Toad's Pond, the Moriya Shrine, the Genbu Ravine and the Untrodden Valley.
Despite the Tengu having the largest dominion over the mountain, notably by establishing their dwelling place inside it, it is also home to the Kappa near the base and the Moriya Shrine near the top. This profile covers the uneasy alliance between these three forces, with the Tengu as the most important part.
