Call of Cthulhu RPG: Secrets of Japan (Cthulhu Now)
Two Japans: One is a bright, modern, technical wonder of glass and steel. The other is a shadowy labyrinth of corrupt feudal customs. Both uneasily coexist on a string of volcanic islands in the Pacific Ocean, off the coast of China. This coveted archipelago is a battleground for primordial entities who once ruled the Empire of the Sun, who remember a golden age, and who will themselves not be forgotten.
