The Flower Capital is currently the only location in Wano to be prosperous, due to the shogun Orochi's corrupt administration. Despite this, various crimes run rampant throughout the capital, such as crossroad killings committed by a magistrate and Kamazo, theft by Ushimitsu Kozo, and racketeering from the Kyoshiro Family.
By law, the citizens of Flower Capital must have money. Anyone who runs out for any reason will be exiled.
Layout and LocationsEdit
The capital is divided into areas known as districts, each covering several streets.
The Red-Light District (
Rasetsu Town (羅刹町 Rasetsu-chō?) is an area of the Flower Capital where, up to a 1,000 people, are imprisoned for crimes against the shogun and Kaido, including showing loyalty to their enemies, the Kozuki Family. It has a large two-story prison with a lattice fence on the ground level surrounded by pikes so citizens could see the price of betrayal. The second level has traditional vertical bars. There is a large kanji "牢" above the entrance. Rasetsu is the Japanese name for the Hindu figure Rakshasa.
The Bath House (湯屋 Yuya?) is a popular location for the residents to relax. According to Shinobu, it is unisex and the water there is warmer as that is the way the residents prefer. It is runned by large male octopi. Being a popular location, discussions held there are easy to eavesdrop upon and gather information.
Outside the CityEdit
It may have been named after the real-life Mt. Fuji, a well-known symbol and the highest mountain in Japan.
A shrine in the forest outside the city.
Directly to the east of the city is a leftovers town called Ebisu Town (えびす町 Ebisu-chō?). Its residents, while extremely poor, all follow a philosophy of always being positive and constantly laugh about their troubles. But this is because they're unable to make any other expression no matter how they really feel due to the effects of eating the SMILE fruits.
The town may have been named after Ebisu, one of the Seven Gods of Fortune who was known as "the laughing god" as he was mirthful in spite of his hardships, similar to the residents of the town. But, while the god's mirthfulness is genuine, the residents' smiles are described as masks that they're incapable of taking off.

Wano Country ArcEdit
At the same time, the Oiran Komurasaki traveled toward Orochi Castle for a banquet. On the way, she and her escorts encountered Bingo who revealed Komurasaki's true nature, but was exiled from the capital due to his status.
Afterwards, Franky returned to his undercover job as a carpenter under Minatomo guidance, in hopes of finding the blueprints of Kaido's resident on Onigashima. However, Minatomo revealed that he no longer has them. Franky was fired for lashing out and he began searching for them by visiting every person who had them.
Back on the streets of Wano, Queen's assassins were revealed to be X Drake and Page One. As the Straw Hats and Law escaped the scene, Page One started destroying any shops he saw and told the owners to call for Sangoro to reveal himself. Despite Law's warnings, Sanji confronted and attacked Page One.
- 花の都 can be translated as "City of Flowers", which is one of the names of Tokyo.
