Welcome to Mizuke, The Capital of Katamegi & Cultural Masterpiece of the southern bay area.


Founded under Japanese rule in 1936, Mizuke has grown to become one of the regions most populated districts, housing many of Katamegi's main facilities such as the...

As well holding much of Katamegi's rich cultural heritage, Mizuke is also a home to most of the islands commerce. Though having quite a small population, the district's demand is booming and skycrapers continue to soar through the city skyline - The tallest remaining Tower 1 of the Pacific Complex. Some of Mizuke's commercial areas can be seen in the images below.

Now that we have covered commerce and culture within the boundaries of the region, we must move onto residential.

As well as apartment complexes and multi-storey condos, Mizuke is full of bustling suburbs widely spread with magnificent mansions, torturous tentaments and cozy cottages. Though not too tall or monstrous, these residential properties are what make up Mizuke's unique population and reflect many different cultures and 'Phases' throughout the generation and or history of the island. In this section of images, as well as the pictures i will explain the origins and history behind the architecture of the properties shown.

In this first image, a combination of luxury villas and multi storey apartments are seen by the boardwalk. The apartments, though new, resemble the architecture of some Japanese apartments seen built in the last few decades. The high wealth villas, on the other hand, mark the time in Katamegi's history when many rich europeans came to the islands sandy shores for vaction from their temporary job relocations in Japan.

In this second image, we see the previous images last statement put into a more obvious form.

And finally, in this image we see more apartments - however, i urge you to focus on the building found in the bottom left corner as well as the top right, as they reflect the modern era of Katmegi's architecture as well as the country's strong point of view towards eco-friendliness (note the solar panels on the roof)
