The original map of Kanji.

was the first region available in the Pokémon Voyage chain. It was originally based on the world of Pokémon Region, a more fleshed out version of the world presented in the Pokémon video games and anime. While named after a the Japanese writing system, the original design of the region was a styalized version of the hirigana symbol "To".
