The Wharf

Most of the poorer neighborhoods in New Edo surround the wharf. For a short period after trade of technological imports and cultural exports began with the west, business on the wharf boomed. But with the advent of high speed trains criss-crossing the oceans, trading via ships no longer became desirable. Soon the only things left in the district were the fishing and sake industries, which are entirely run (if not owned) by the working class.

Because of this shifting of trading practices, there are still many abandoned buildings left at the wharf today. These are often used for underground concerts and meetings.
