A map of the Five Mountains.

The Five Mountains (五山, Gozan)[1] are located on an island in the center of the Yellow Sea. It is home to the Nyosen and gods.

"The peaks reach high enough to touch the very sky, yet like the Yellow Sea at their base, they are mostly barren, vast expanses of rock and falling water, marked with rare patches of green and linked together by the strange geography of the land and the endless embrace of ceaseless winds.

In the wild enormity of the Five Mountains, there is one place where people live: the small temple complex of Brush Jar Palace, on the midslopes of Hohzan".[2]
