The heart of Aoyaman politics, the Aoyaman National Parliament houses 150 representatives in both the House of Commons and 50 in the House of Lords. Outside surrounding parliament is Parliament Park, a one acre field, with 8 white cherry blossoms blooming by the side.
In front of Parliament stand 8 illuminating pillars, near the statues of the first ruling family. Like the 8 cherry blossoms, they represent good luck (8 is a number commonly represented for good luck in Asian cultures). It’s been said however if all eight lights are lit, and one light suddenly breaks, the light must either be replaced immediately, or another light has to be broken. If not, an undetermined time of suffering will befall Aoyama. This rumor started since the sudden death of Former Prime Minister Taro Isei died on the day over 20 years ago when one of the pillar’s lights broke. To this day, the coroners haven't concluded if he was assassinated. The case to this day, is still a mystery.
Shinatama is home to nearly 300,000 of Sakura City’s residents. Like most of Sakura City’s architecture, it comprises of tall, slim, greenish-blue glass buildings.
