Here you can find some information on locations that can be found in [info]ghostsugar_rp.

Main Gate - This is the main entrance to the school by which students enter campus, where the school sign is. The gates are heavy, wrought-iron things with curliques and arrow points on the tops. It makes the school look a bit like a jail, what with the six-foot brick walls surrounding the complex. On either side of this gate are thick hedges. Every morning two teachers will have a turn to wait outside this gate to greet students and check uniforms.

Courtyard - A courtyard paved with old flagstones and planted with shrubs and flowers. You can either walk straight ahead to the main entrance of the school, or follow the long walkway around to the students' entrance to the school building.

At the student's entrance to the school building, there is a small gatehouse at which students change from their street school shoes to their indoor school shoes. Shoes are kept in small unlocked shoe lockers organized by homeroom. This is a great place to stash a love letter to that special someone!

Hallways - The hallways inside the school have high ceilings, tiled floors, and thick oak walls. The acoustics have a lot of echo to them when the hall is empty. Here and there a cobweb can be seen on the ceiling, or a red rusty dribble from a leaking pipe (or is it?). On bulletin boards in the hallway, one can find posted grades, health and hygeine tips, and information about upcoming events and contests.

Stairwells - Wide oak stairwells at the end of each hall lead up to the next floor. The stairs are of the style which consist of thick planks to walk on with a space between. Some students have claimed to see ghostly hands that have reached through to grab their ankles. School staff assures everyone that this is probably due to a simple prank.

Bathrooms - Restrooms can be found on each floor. The student's bathrooms are notoriously chilly even in summer. Tiled floor and ancient pedestal sinks (that could probably use a cleaning), wooden stall doors give a feeling of dated luxury. Both Japanese-style and Western-style toilets are in the stalls.

Classrooms - Classrooms have hardwood floors and sliding doors to enter and exit the class. Windows are tall and hung with heavy drapes. Artwork and student's reports decorate the walls. The room is cleaned by the students at the end of the day. A flower arrangement is placed by a student near the front of the class each week. Students can eat lunch in their classroom or go out to the grounds or cafeteria.

School Main Structure- consists of two buildings (A and B) linked by short outdoor walkways that bridge the gap between the two buildings.

Roof- Students aren't supposed to be up here, but seem to find their way anyway. Plain bare concrete with ventilation ducts. A good place for a fight, a nap, or a rendezvous.

Gym - Boys' and Girls' locker rooms, a large gym. All Assemblies take place on the floor here. The track, soccer field, and baseball diamond can be found behind.

Dojo - a low, Japanese-style wooden building that is divided into rooms in which the kendo and judo clubs practice. The kyuudo target range is outside.

Cafeteria - Students can eat lunch in their classroom or buy food in the school cafeteria, which serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner because of boarders. Kikuryou's cafeteria food isn't bad, but some of the more uppity students claim it is.Hot food such as soup and curry as well as sandwiches, rice balls, and sweet breads are popular.

Tea Garden - a small gazebo and koi pond area planted with traditional flowers. Everblooming camellias, lush irises and waterlilies. Sometimes the face in the reflection of the water looks decidedly unlike your own...

Rose Garden - There's something distinctly English about this space, which is heavily manicured and planted with loads of roses in every shape, size and color imaginable. Violets, daisies, and carnations fill in the gaps. Wrought-iron benches, cupids, and birdbaths abound.

Greenhouse- A dainty glass structure which houses plants and flowers. Students tend plants here for clubs and for science class. Behind this are vegetable rows, flower patches, and a hedge maze.

Library - A two-story building with tons of books, lots of space to study. Small study rooms are available. Open late nights and on weekends for boarding students. Adjoining this is a small student cafe called Apple-chan which serves hot drinks, pastries, and snacks before and after school and during busy study times. A wide expanse of green grass known as the East Meadow surrounds the building.

Southeast Corner - A shady and mysterious area of campus. Here one can find an old well which has been covered with a metal grate. Rows and rows of worn statues of foxes and stone dogs, Jizo, and Buddha's disciples stand forgotten under overgrown bamboo and pine trees. Through this courtyard, another gate forms a back entrance to the school. Outside the gate lies a vast, cramped graveyard. Beyond this graveyard, more statues of various deities surround the pathway which leads to Kasuga Shrine.

Dormitories- can be found on the eastern edge of campus near the library. Boarding students can choose to live here in either single or double rooms. Accommodations are spartan but neat and clean with shared bathrooms, a kitchenette on each wing. Quiet hours and curfew are enforced. Boys are not allowed in the girl's dorm after 6 p.m. and vice versa.

Off-Campus Locations

Downtown- Kikuryou is a sleepy small town with one train station. Grouped around the station is a small downtown area with shops and restaurants to wander around in. Apartment buildings are rarely higher than 4 stories. There is one video arcade, as well as a pet store, a handful of cafes, two bookstores, a used video game store, barbershop, beauty parlor, liquor store, pachinko parlor, hardware store, grocery store, quite a few family restaurants and hole-in-the-wall noodle shops. There is one movie theater but the screens are the old kind and there's not THX or Dolby or anything.

Kurita- To get serious shopping done or to buy some really fashionable clothes, you will have to get on the train and take a ten-minute trip to Kurita, which has a large mall, Gigaplex movie theater, everyday department stores, and the like.

Kamakura- About a thirty-minute train ride away, you can get to Kamakura (ah, a non-ficitional location!) which is a quaint old-fashioned city that's great for sightseeing and packed with gardens and temples.

Beach- Beyond Kamakura is the beach, the lovely beach. The area around here is popular for surfing.

Lake and nature preserve- From Kikuryou, a drive into the hills in the direction heading away from Kuritsu/Kamakura will take you into the mountains. A nature preserve park can be found here, with a lake that houses protected species of waterfowl. Great for hiking and stargazing. Do not get caught littering or hunting here <s>Ulf</s> or you will get caught by a park ranger.
